Normal drivers caught as chronic speeder in Tuggeranong Pkwy

IntimidatedDriver 2 November 2007 104

I have serious concerns over the speed camera/s installed near/under the bridge of
Cotter road overpass on Tuggeranong Parkway. It appears to be a notorious speed camera that detects regular gentle commuters as traffic speed offenders!

I have heard of a number of people receiving 5-7 speeding tickets issued on offences (ranging from 110 Km/h to 120+ Km/h with fines and demerit points) detected by this particular camera  only to normal law abiding commuters/drivers who travel through a number of other traffic cameras on their daily travel/commuting without any problems. In all cases they were supposedly caught by this particular camera only!! And in most cases the offences caught by this camera being the only traffic offences they have supposedly committed in their entire driving life! 

This raises a question on the accuracy of this camera. I strongly believe we (all sufferers of this notorious camera) MUST make representations to relevant authorities or Ministers to look at this issue.

DMD – I’m over the flaming, not the topic.

As for the real topic – I’m over that too. I keep reading them then out of sheer morbid curiosity (ie what new way can we collectively bitch about speed cameras this time).

Cameron Cameron 5:10 pm 02 Nov 07

I wasn’t suggesting for a moment that you did. You are as free to do what you want as I am free to bitch about it.

And Cam, why are you still reading this topic if you’re ‘so over it’, princess?
Sorry to double post if I did.

Yeah fair enough, i dont really care about this new argument either. I will do what i want, and i didn’t need your permission. cheers though.

Oh and Milord of Rings, on your earlier comments about Ralph having his degree (did you get him confused with Thumper?) – it’s a bit different from you having an imaginary plot of land in Scotland. A degree is supposed to be an indication that someone has enough intelligence to debate on a certain topic. Someone not being able to debate on a topic whilst supposedly having attained a degree is a real worry. Having a lordship just indicates that you’re oudated (as well as inbred, as Tap pointed out). Claiming to have a lordship means you’re just very very lame, if all you can muster to prove yourself is a stupid title (and further on that…wtf are you doing in Australia if you have land in Scotland??? You could make a lot more over there than you could here considering current exchange rates!), that’s just sad, very sad.

Not meaning to double post my life away, but keep seeing something new by the time I post…

Anyway – I haven’t really found any of it amusing because I couldn’t care less about Occam’s Razor and it surprises the hell out of me that two people will go hard at each other about it for two days.

Perhaps my lack of care for the subject matter is why I’m so over it. *sigh*

Cameron Cameron 5:04 pm 02 Nov 07

Ok maybe its time for a new argument, surely you are doing exactly what you don’t want to see right now?

Unashamedly – simply trying to get things back on course. Unlike you and LM, I’m not going to spend the better part of two days letting my point turn into a flame war. You want to start one, go for it. I’ll bow out, you can have this thread to yourself and you can dance your dance of victory for as long as it stays fun – if that’s how strongly you feel about it.

There certainly were ‘on topic’ posts yesterday, after which your flame war started. Can’t argue about today because I couldn’t be bothered looking.

cameron, you’ve got to admit it was a little amusing when Mealinar blew his top before… lol

Cameron Cameron 5:00 pm 02 Nov 07

And my comment before last probably should have been delete everything between (and including) “take” and “will” for the sake of you know, making sense.

Deadmandrinking Deadmandrinking 4:59 pm 02 Nov 07

I actually find it amusing because it looks like our mighty Lord Maelinar is tripping over his imaginary robe.
Call it stockpiling ammunition for further debates…

tap tap 4:58 pm 02 Nov 07

Ok maybe its time for a new argument, surely you are doing exactly what you don’t want to see right now? And i disagree about people still discussing speeding in here, there has not been any comments today in here not relating to the occams razor debate in some way.

Cameron Cameron 4:55 pm 02 Nov 07

Come on, Cam, flame wars are fun.

Yeah… but only if I’m in them… 😉

But seriously: They have their place, and they happen here occasionally. My beef with this one is that it is dragging on, it isn’t really that funny (IMHO) and I suppose it irks me more that it happened in this thread that has happened a thousand times already.

We should really have a seperate topic called ‘lefties vs. righties’ on here.

I’d be all for it – at least then people actually would be able to tune out if they weren’t interested.

tap tap 4:55 pm 02 Nov 07

Yeah flame wars are kind of good aren’t they?

Hopefully Meal-in-ear will think twice before calling someone he doesn’t know a dumbass in future… Probably not though…

Cameron Cameron 4:54 pm 02 Nov 07

Don’t make this about me not liking the subject matter of this thread and that I should therefore just avoid it. There was a legitimate discussion (albeit one that has been had many times over) happening here before you two hijacked it. In fact, there were still a few attempts at continuing the legit discussion in and amongst your spat.

IMHO, if anyone needs to take their business elsewhere, it is you and your argument that needs to go – not me and my wish to read comments that you know, have something to do with the thread they’re in.

But anyway it appears that this conversation is finished so i spose its all a bit moot anyway.

Exactly my point.

Though for the record if he does respond to me I will respond to him.

“Must have the last word” Syndrome.

Ok im pushing it now

Not to mention proving my point that you’re pushing a dead issue.

Ill take your silence as you accepting that you are wrong and will move on.

A thinly veiled attempt to bait LM. Delete everything between (and including) “take” and “and” and you have what you probably should have said.

Come on, Cam, flame wars are fun.

Ok im pushing it now, but Lordy, you said:

‘You are a c–k. Even your insults have lacked inspiration.’

Pure gold mate, pure gold.

Ill take your silence as you accepting that you are wrong and will move on.

Cameron,

I don’t mean to be rude to you, but i still think if you are not interested, then don’t read. There are plenty of other articles for you to read.

But anyway it appears that this conversation is finished so i spose its all a bit moot anyway.

Though for the record if he does respond to me I will respond to him.

ive got it all over this joker, im actually right (which is handy)

I have been paying zero attention to the facts, and don’t really care about Occam’s Razor, or who is right or wrong. If you’re right, or at the very least believe yourself to be right, then good for you.

and im better at insulting than the pretentious git is.

Now that is a matter of opinion.

This has been awesome fun!

For you, perhaps. I’m certain, however, that there are other ways for you both to entertain yourselves without flaming eachother on RA (and thus exposing the rest of us to a ‘discussion’ that was less about the supposed subject matter than it was about scoring points for the insult containing the most wit).

caf caf 4:03 pm 02 Nov 07

I was going to ignore this from now on, but while I was out at lunch an interesting example came to me.

It is this: Maelinar, you yourself have demonstrated employing Occam’s Razor. You have related recently the story of finding damaged oranges on the ground near the golf course, along with observations made by another of loud booms nearby. Now, there are plenty of complex explanations for these two pieces of evidence, but the simplest one is that someone nearby has built an orange cannon and is using it to propel the aforementioned fruit. In the absence of further evidence, you have assumed the simplest explanation, which is what the Razor tells you to do.

Cameron,

You have to understand how much fun this is, ive got it all over this joker, im actually right (which is handy) and im better at insulting than the pretentious git is. This has been awesome fun!
