I would like to know what are my chances of avoiding a speeding fine? I haven’t been booked for 18 years, so I was surprised when the notice arrived in the mail this week.
A speed camera snapped a photo of my car allegedly travelling 70km in a 60km zone.
In NSW (where I used to live) if you write an apologetic letter explaining that you are normally a law abiding citizen and haven’t been booked for ages, the police are sympathetic enough to drop the fine.
A few friends have done this and their fines were cancelled.
Do ACT police also show this type of leniency or should I not bother and just pay the fine?
