The Speeding Camera Vans of the ACT

By Doctor Evil - 30 August 2009 89

A big congratulations to the driver of ACT Govt speed camera van with rego plate YFA-46R that was stationed on the center median strip of the Monaro Highway north bound lanes, just near the Snowy Hydro copter shop today, Sunday 27 August . 

After a long day of keeping our roads safer by sending out fines in the mail next week, it was time for the operator of speed camera van YFA-46R to pack up at about 6:00Pm tonight.

Obviously in a hurry to get those fines processed and in the mail, speed camera van YFA-46R pulled out onto the right hand lane without lights and drove for probably 200 metres before switching them on.

Also in such a hurry that when we hit the section of road where the speed limit increases to 100 we were having trouble staying with you.  In fact, out of curiosity we decided to see how fast you were actually going, but we gave up at 115km/h and backed off to the speed limit.

So all those people that are going to get a nice surprise in the mail over the coming weeks can feel just that little bit better, knowing that it was issued by someone so special that the road rules don’t apply to them.

Well done, driver of speed camera van YFA-46R!!

What’s Your opinion?

Homer: So I said, “Look buddy, your car was upside-down when I got here. And as for your grandmother, she shouldn’t have mouthed off like that!”

So you did one of 2 things:

1) Sped yourself to test a theory out, something you don;t have the legal capacity to do or;

2) Judged someone’s speed with a non-certified speedo and then decided to produce your ‘findings’ on a public website

Well done super cop

Heard of GPS?

And i’m super cop? LOL…..

Who gives a stuff? Did they cause an accident? Does the operator of the van really care any more than the rest of Canberra about sticking to the exact speed limit.

If I didn’t know any better, I call this a clever bit of trolling. You certainly hooked at least one…

Great post. Driving back from Sydney today, I had the cruise set spot on 110, and was overtaken twice by different NSW Police cars that were obviously not en route to an emergency. Wish I had their plates…

Apparently, much like those who write laws, those who enforce them are also exempt.

You don’t read this site much do you?

Try googling ‘s305 of the Australian Road Rules’. It will assuage your naivety

“those who enforce them are also exempt”

Under certain circumstances, yes they are

Cop bashing is an old mob favorite of public forums, and picking on public servants is like mana from heaven for ACT natives…

But really, if I have to abide by laws imposed on me, then those charged to enforce those laws have to constantly be the best example. The dick driving that van as teh OP described needs to be sanctioned just like any other person who broke the rules. But we know that wont happen… its all mates whith thier arms around each other.

Without doubt they are driven and operated by Beelzebub’s hoary minions.

I suggest you send an email to road user services too.

On a related matter, I was travelling down Hindmarsh on to Monaro Highway southbound when an ambo approached with lights/sirens. We all let it go through, only to see it had pulled into the South Care base. No sign of the chopper or any other activity. Was there an emergency in the base or was his tea getting cold? This was at 11am? Shift change?

I’d say you should make an official complaint or mention this to the Greens/Liberals.

I am sure most people picked up today would of only been caught doing 10k’s over the limit (if that) so that is quite a disgrace.

Pretty much sums it up. What a maggot.
