Worth a ticket?

A reader emails:

Hi Cam

I recently got sprung doing 63kph in a 50kph zone here in the Far North. I asked the Police for a photo and they sent me this. I guess it’s a fair cop and I’ll pay up but is it a bit dodgy that the Police have their speed cameras pointed directly at the point where the speed limit reduces from 100kph to 50kph? Any criminal lawyers out there with an opinion on this?


Personally I think he deserves a ticket for driving a Ford.

However from the angle it would appear that he hasn’t even crossed over into the 50kmh zone. I think this could be an interesting case.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
