- Intro

We trust that you all enjoyed some kind of a break over the Christmas/New Year period and managed to spend some quality time with family and friends. We are super excited about what 2016 holds for our Members and, as you will see from the articles below, the year has already kicked off with some great results.

More and more people are waking up to the fact that the current system of purported “road safety” is simply about revenue raising and, as you will read soon, more motorists than ever before are choosing to fight back against the current corrupt and ineffective system, which is great news.

We genuinely believe that we are at a serious tipping point – on one hand, the governments and their goons are going to extraordinary lengths to try and extract every last dollar that they can from people and finding new ways to fine motorists and collect those fines. But, on the other hand, as we noted above, more people than ever before are fighting back and “the system” is really starting to feel the consequences of that.

As we have said many times before, it is simply a numbers game – there are many times more of “us” than there are of “them” and, as soon as we all starting fighting backcollectively, we will bring the system to its knees. We look forward to playing our role in ensuring that 2016 is the year that happens.

So, to find out what great  successes have already been achieved at this early point in the year – as well as examining some of the issues that we still face – be sure to read on and help us spread the word by passing this e-mail around to everyone you know.

And, don’t forget to check out our closing Facebook group, bumper stickers and business cards section to find other ways that you can help get the message out to fellow motorists and make this our most successful year ever.

Proof in the media that more people are fighting their fines

As we noted in our Intro, more people than ever before are fighting back against unjust and unlawful fines. In fact, so many people are now doing so that even the mainstream media is reporting on it, as you can see in this article – http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/more-victorian-drivers-taking-parking-and-traffic-fines-to-court/news-story/bb34deda5b00e8f3caf800396dadcba5

As the article states, more and more motorists, each and every year, are choosing to fight their fines and, last year, that number was almost 73,000, which is fantastic news. The problem is that Victoria Police issued 2.9 million traffic infringements and there were a further 1.68 million parking tickets issued so why did only 73,000 motorists challenge their fines when over 4.5 million fines were issued???

Those figures mean that only 1.5% of people who received a fine actually challenged it in court – that is simply not good enough! We believe that figure should be as close to 100% as possible – now, realistically, that is never going to happen but let’s at least start by aiming for double figures and see what kind of an impact that has on the system!

Be sure to refer to the story in our last official e-mail update of 2015 that details how the NSW government is spending $20 million to try and cut the backlog in their court system - http://www.skynews.com.au/news/politics/state/2015/12/06/-20m-package-to-cut-nsw-court-backlog.html - which is, at least in part, a result of so many people challenging their fines and helping to fill up the courts. Just imagine the impact we could make if 10%, 20% or if 50% of people challenged their fines!!!

Remember, our e-book – “Speeding Fines What You REALLY Need to Know” – teaches you everything you need to know to successfully challenge your fines, from the moment you receive a fine in the mail or get pulled over, right through to taking a matter to court and beating it there. The book is laid out in a very simple, easy to follow, step-by-step format that thousands of motorists have been using now – since 2007, when we started – to beat their fines.

We would urge you to spend some time reading through our five full pages of Testimonials - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Testimonials.html - to see for yourself just how many people have successfully used our information. Then, if you haven’t yet done so, be sure to join up as an E-Book Member -http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html - and grab your own copy of our licence-saving e-book, in either digital format or hard copy.

And remember, as an E-Book Member, you are not only getting the information in our book, you are also getting almost 30 pre-written letters that you can use to respond to any fine you receive and you get 24/7 e-mail support from our team as well, to assist you with any questions you may have along the way. There is a small one-off fee to become an E-Book Member and, once you are, you get regular e-mail updates and e-mail support completely free for life!

So, join up now, encourage your friends, family and work colleagues to do so as well so that, at the end of this year, the media is reporting a massive spike in the number of people that are challenging their fines and we start hearing more stories about the issues that “the system’ is facing as a result.

- The truth about speed cameras

We have had a page up on our website for many years now that has information on why speed and red light cameras should be removed from service and we even have a petition that you can sign to help achieve that outcome - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Petition-To-Remove-Cameras.html

We have recently received a few more articles, which we intend to upload to that page, that provide even further information on the problems with speed cameras. The first is a great article that asks the very powerful question, “Are speed cameras killing us?” - http://www.caradvice.com.au/332771/are-speed-cameras-killing-us-the-stats-say-yes/?plista

This article clearly silences the government propaganda that “Speed Kills” or that “Speed Cameras Save Lives” – as we’re constantly told – and, although the article is a year old, the increase in the road toll in Victoria occurred again last year, as this article details - http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-01-01/victorian-road-toll-increases-in-2015-to-257-killed/7063538

So, despite more cameras being installed across Victoria, and more fines being issued in Victoria each year, the road toll has continued to increase over the past 2 years! The road toll is also currently up in NSW and we are just awaiting figures from other States as we write but don’t believe that any State has seen any significant reduction in the road toll last year. So, why does the government continue using speed cameras if they have been proven not to“save lives”? Because they make a hell of a lot of money. As the “Are Speed Cameras Killing Us? article” states, revenue from speed cameras alone, just in Victoria, is almost $300 million!!! If you were in government and raking in that much money, would you remove them? Of course not!

So, as we have said a million times before, the only way to put an end to this madness and have these cameras removed is by getting everyone to challenge every fine they get. Then, the government will be faced with the fact that speed cameras are making little or no money and the road toll is continuing to increase and then, they will have to take notice of the strategies and ideas that we have detailed on our Vision for the Future page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html

The closing lines of the “Are Speed Cameras Killing Us?” article perfectly mirrors what we have had on our Vision for the Future page for over 8 years now – let’s focus on improving driver training and education, removing drunk and drug affected drivers from our roads and let’s stop focussing on “speeding” and, instead, concentrate on the factors that truly affect “road safety”.

We received another great article that, once again, proves that speed cameras are all about revenue raising. The opening line of this article - http://www.vice.com/read/the-shady-municipal-business-of-traffic-cams - details a fact that many of us can relate to (depending on your age). For many years we drove very happily and very safely without ever receiving a fine but, since the introduction of the insidious speed camera program, many drivers have received numerous fines, especially over the past 5 years or so.

Be sure to take note of some key statements throughout that article, such as the reference to an 800% increase in accidents when cameras were installed in a town in California or how simply lengthening the time an intersection’s light remains red can improve safety at zero cost and without the need for red light cameras.

The point that should excite all Aussie motorists is the fact that the city councils in Los Angeles and Houston have voted overwhelmingly to shut the speed and red light camera programs because they have proven that the cameras simply don’t work and, since they are no longer making money for those councils, there’s absolutely no point keeping them. We need to ensure that our cameras, right here in Australia, also stop making money – by people challenging their fines rather than blindly “paying up” – and that is how we will have them removed here too.

The Police are starting to speak up against speed cameras

In our earlier Proof in the media that more people are fighting their fines section, we detailed the fact that the mainstream media is now reporting on the fact that more and more people are choosing to challenge their fines and that is great news. Even better news is the fact that ex-police officers are now starting to speak up about what a complete scam the current system of “speed detection” aka “revenue raising” really is.

There was a great article posted right at the start of this year called “The Speed Camera Swindle” and you can read it here - http://revenueraiserresistance.com/camera-swindle/ This article was written by an ex-police officer, who was certified as a Class 1 Advanced (Police) Driver so we dare say that he is pretty well qualified to comment on this subject.

He starts by explaining that, quite obviously, overt cameras are going to cause people to slow down, yet covert speed detection practices – whereby you are simply sent a fine in the mail a few weeks after the fact – cannot possibly cause people to slow down or save anyone’s life. This fact was highlighted in the “Are Speed Cameras killing Us?” article in our previous section.

He goes on to say that despite the use of covert cameras increasing, the standard of driving has decreased because covert cameras clearly do nothing to modify driver’s behaviour at the time that they are actually driving. He goes onto to mirror what we have said for years, that it is focus and attention that are the keys to true road safety.

He also talks about the fact that speeds limits are set too low – ie. arbitrarily set and then artificially lowered in order to “catch” more motorists. This lowering of limits causes frustration and anger and that is yet another factor in accidents. So, the reality is that governments are actually causing the very accidents that they preach they are trying to stop!

As he correctly states, we need to be focused on driving safely not on driving below some arbitrarily set speed limit, just so we don’t get a fine! He also makes another point that we have made many times over the past 8 years, regarding the Government “budgeting” an amount of revenue from speed cameras, despite them telling us that they are an effective deterrent and cause people to slow down. He points out that the WA government has “budgeted” for income of almost $98 million from cameras this year but surely, if camera truly worked they way the government claims they do then they should be budgeting zero income!

His closing lines, about covert cameras having little effect on road safety, the fact that cameras exist purely to raise revenue and the on-going brainwashing of cizitizens really does say a lot,especially coming from an ex-police officer with his training and experience.

Thankfully, he is not the only police officer saying these kinds of things. We received a fairly strongly worded e-mail this week from Owen Godfrey – another ex-police officer, who heads up the No Speed Cameras party in SA – www.nospeedcamerasparty.com His e-mail was in response to some so-called “statistics” that were released in regards to the road toll in South Australia and we have included a copy of that e-mail for you below:

Michael Cornish from the MAC needs to check his maths.

For the 2015 road toll statistics I counted 4 drivers between 16 and 24 years involved in fatalities in the metro area and 10 in the country.

To me that’s 14% NOT 18% that is statistically relevant for the 12% of people in this age range considering that many of the youngest people are not yet driving.

It is also interesting to note that a 10 year study by two academics at Monash University concluded that there was absolutely no correlation between the use of mobile phones and accidents.

Of course dialling a number or texting is not only unsafe but also irresponsible so maybe the nanny state can just back off a little.

The current system of education by prosecution is NOT working, it never has and it never will.

The only outcome is that it rips off more illegitimate money from a fine-weary public for no benefit to the road toll.

Everybody who has bothered to study the facts realise that the reduction to the road toll in the last 20 years has been due to factors other than speed cameras and laser guns.

This disgusting Government insults our Police with disgusting changes to their worker compensation rights and then expects them to be their illegitimate tax collectors whilst sullying their integrity.

He raises some very important points – such as reminding people, once again, that proper driver training and education is key to reducing the road toll and the fact that the current speed detection program and subsequent fining and punishing of drivers simply isn’t working.

Again, it’s important to remember that this is coming from an ex-police officer who used to issue fines to people himself but he only did so if they were driving dangerously, not just for exceeding some recently reduced speed limit by a few km/h.

- Troubling news for Victorian motorists

Sadly, it’s not all good news this week though. We just came across this article - http://www.theage.com.au/victoria/drivers-warned-as-new-speed-cameras-roll-out-across-victoria-20160108-gm2dkw.html - which details the fact that 17 new cameras are soon to be rolled out across Victoria.

So, despite everything that we have covered in this e-mail up til now, despite all the statistics, facts and professional opinions that say that cameras do not work in reducing the road toll, the Victorian government has decided to ignore all of that and introduce even more new cameras this year.

The article contains the usual government propaganda suggesting that “We know that speed is one of the leading cause of accidents and the significant level of road trauma” yet they can’t actually point to any statistics that would back up this claim and we have clearly provided plenty of evidence, just in this one e-mail update alone, to refute that statement.

We find it very interesting that Police Minister Wade Noona says that “most people do the right thing but too many people are still speeding and running red lights.” Now, this statement would clearly suggest that “speeding” therefore, is doing the “wrong” thing so, why is it that Victori’as top cop, Chief Commissioner Graham Ashton was caught speeding recently. And, he wasn’t caught speeding by just 1 or 2 km/h over the limit, he was caught doing a “whopping” 8km/h over the limit!

Please keep in mind hat this is the same Chief Commissioner that supports the “Speed Kills” and “Every K over is a Killer” mantras. So Mr Ashton, are you able to direct us to the 8 people that were killed as a result of you exceeding the speed limit by 8km/h?

No? Can you direct us to even one? Was anyone even injured?

Then how about you start telling the truth and stop spouting the crap to the media that you did when you were caught! http://www.theage.com.au/victoria/victoria-police-chief-commissioner-graham-ashton-caught-speeding-20160108-gm20vx.html Seriously, what’s with the, “I am embarrassed and diassppointed to find I have gone above the speed limit.” garbage?

Now, maybe if he said he was embarrassed and disappointed that he was caught, we could understand it but we will eat our words if he is genuinely embarrassed and disappointed to find that he exceeded the speed limit when it was clearly set too low – it is a brand new 4 lane freeway with a limit of only 100km/h – and almost everymotorist has drifted above the posted limit at some tiem or another in their driving lives and they are certainly not embarrassed or disappointed about doing so.

Mr Ashton, you are a joke and you do not deserve to hold the position of Chief Commissioner if you are going to lie to the public, lie to your fellow officers and lie to yourself like that! Please remove yourself from that office before you do yourself, or others, some serious harm with your lies!

The reality is that his following statement actually backs up everything we have said in this e-mail update. He admits that his speeding “was as a result of a lapse in concentration” which “highlights the need for constant attention behind the wheel” – that’s right, “constant attention” to where you are driving not constant attention on your speedo!!!

He evn goes onto to say that “Maintaining focus on the road at all times is critical; a moments distraction on the road can lead to tragedy” – we agree wholeheartedly and that is exactly what we have said throughout this e-mail, motorists should be focussing on the road in front of them and not on their speedo. They should be paying less attention to what “speed” they are doing and more attention to actually driving safely.

Of course, he finishes off with his ridiculous and baseless propaganda about how even a few km/h over “matters” yet he provides absolutely zero evidence to back up this false and misleading claim!

We are working with some other groups at present and hope to put out an open video letter to the Chief Commissioner asking him to meet with us so that we can put an end to the BS propaganda and start discussing true road safety initiatives. We will let everyione know as that project progresses and we will be asking you to help us ensure that video goes viral oince we have completed it.

And, speaking of helping us to make things go viral, please be sure to read our final section to see what you can do to really help us spread the word and bring about some realchange this year.

Dear Reader,

Intro

Today is ANZAC Day. It is a time for remembering those who have fallen, fighting for our freedom and liberties. So, why is it that so many people, despite all the sacrifices that have been made on our behalf in the past, are content to sit on their asses and allow all those freedoms and liberties, that have been fought for so valiantly, to be slowly but surely eroded away by the corrupt governments that now control us.

What would those diggers say from beyond the grave if they could see the disgraceful corruption that Australia has degenerated into? How disgusted would they be that their lives were given in vain? They fought so hard for us to be free and yet we give our freedoms away every day by refusing to fight back against the injustices that are forced upon us by the very people that we elected into power to do our bidding!

Yes, of course, traffic fines are just a very small part of those but they’re a great start and they are something that everyone can relate to and they are a way that everyone can fight back collectively and send a united message to the powers-that-be, that we are “Aussies”, we are fighters and we will not be controlled or dominated anymore!

Our diggers had to fight for their lives in horrendous conditions to protect our freedoms – all you have to do is pick up a pen.

You will not find a single link to our e-book in this e-mail because we don’t care what information you use – what we care about is that Aussie motorists stand up and fight back. We’re not asking you to pick up rifles and huddle in cold, damp, muddy trenches – we’re asking you to get your asses off the couch, turn off the football and pick up a pen and write a letter to your local MP, write a letter to your State Police force or write a letter to some agency that has issued you with an unjust and unlawful fine and challenge it!

Quite frankly, if you’re not prepared to make just a small sacrifice like that, when thousands gave their lives for you then you are a disgrace, you disrespect their memory and you don’t deserve the few freedoms that you have left. No-one made it easier for our diggers to fight so forget about our e-book for today and just stand up, for one day, on your own two feet and fight back.

After all, those who don’t fight for something will fall for anything!

Let us truly honour the memory of those who have fallen by choosing to fight back, in much simpler ways, under much easier conditions, but to achieve the same end result – true freedom for all Aussies.

And, should you need any more reason than the words above to inspire you to fight back then we challenge you to read the sections, articles and stories below because, if they don’t empower you to take action then, sadly, there is clearly no hope for this fine country (pun intended) any longer.

We urge you to read on and prove us wrong …

The blatant revenue raising in QLD

Our first story is from QLD and it clearly shows the lengths that the government is going to – or, perhaps, that should be depths they are lowering themselves to – to raise revenue from entirely innocent, law abiding motorists.

The politicians reduced the tolerance levels for speeding fines a year ago in QLD and, as this story explains - http://www.couriermail.com.au/news/queensland/spike-in-just-over-speeding-fines-as-cops-crack-down-on-camera-margin/story-fnihsrf2-1227314312595 - they have reaped some incredible financial rewards as a result – an extra $5 million to be exact. But, has the road toll go gone down as a result? No, of course it hasn’t, in fact, it has actually increased!

They say that speed tolerances are never published or known by the public but that is a blatant lie – people were well aware, for decades, that there used to be a 10% leeway in the issuing of fines, now A) that doesn’t exist and B) no-one has any idea what the tolerances are. The people that we elected into power to do our bidding are now keeping us in the dark in regard to how they go about raising revenue from us – that’s insane!

The police claim, that this new “enforcement action” is saving lives yet, the video at the top of the article above details that it has been the worst Easter road toll on record so clearly the current system is simply not working!

The Police are “urging motorists not to take risks” but what do you call constantly staring down at your speedo so that you don’t cop a ridiculous, unjust fine! Logic dictates that the more time your eyes are on your speedo and, therefore, not on the road, the more of a danger you are going to be – it’s not rocket science people, it is very simple, straight forward and logical.

Should there be anyone reading this who struggles with this concept in any way, please read this very short article - http://motorbikewriter.com/speedo-gazing-fatal-hazard/ - which explains it in very simple to understand terminology – “Speedo gazing is a ‘fatal hazzard’”.

Further to the article at the start of this section, there was this follow up article the following day - http://www.couriermail.com.au/news/queensland/acting-assistant-commissioner-mike-keating-say-he-has-no-proof-a-speed-camera-crackdown-makes-roads-safer/story-fnkt21jb-1227316012068 - where the Assistant Commissioner admitted that he couldn’t point to any specific proof that all these ridiculous cameras and/or the lowering of tolerances, had reduced the road toll in any way, shape or form, despite the fact that this “crackdown” has been going for almost two years.

He goes onto suggest that it could take up to ten years for the data to become available. So, what are we, the general Aussie motoring public, supposed to do until then, just keep bending over and handing them our hard earned cash!!!

And, what happens in 10 years when it’s proven to be a load of crap – will they come back and repay all those fines with interest??? Let’s get real, this is the most obvious scam ever and yet people are still buying into it- literally “buying into it” buy handing over their money every time one of these agencies sends them a piece of paper in the mail.

At least someone has had to guts to stand up and post a sensible reply to this rubbish - https://www.change.org/p/jack-dempsey-queensland-police-commissioner-stop-hurting-societies-most-vunerable-with-excessive-fines?just_created=true

So, if you are sick of this blatant revenue raising then, as we said in our opening section, please take action and do something about it.

The news is even worse in Victoria

Yes, as the title of this section correctly states, things are even more out of control in Victoria. The Victorian government is so completely and utterly incompetent when it comes to handling finances that they need to constantly create new ways of stealing from their constituents and they have now employed a whole host of people and new ways to do that.

First off, one of our Members sent us this article – http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/victoria/network-of-hi-tech-cameras-on-wheels-to-nab-suspects/story-fni0fit3-1227317826449 - that details the extraordinary lengths they are now going to in Victoria to try and raise every dollar worth of unjust and unlawful revenue that they can.

The article starts by explaining that police vehicles have been fitted with new technology that cost $85 million! Please, stop reading right now and think or just one minute where that $85 million comes from. Then, understand that this is an “investment” for them, they’re not doing it for nothing, they are doing to it make money. So, just to “break even” they need to steal another $85 million from completely innocent Victorian motorists and, because they need their “investment” to pay off, they actually need to raise considerably more than that.

If they’re not getting this money from you then they’re getting it from someone you know. Read the last article in the section above – most motorists are not criminals, they are genuine, law abiding people who are being preyed upon by a money-hungry government that has employed “policy officers: (police) to do their dirty work for them. Is this the kind of thing that you voted the government into power to really do?

Remember, the road toll is increasing so they can’t claim that these are “road safety” initiatives – they are not, they are blatant revenue raising initiatives – and, if you read the rest of the article, they all but admit that.

They “claim” that this new ANPR system will “save lives by reducing numbers of dangerous drivers” yet, they go on to say that the system will simply scan numberplates to “check them against vehicle, criminal and sheriff’s office records, could gather intelligence on “persons of interest” and identify patterns of behaviour and relationships.” – absolutely nothing to do with identifying or stopping “dangerous drivers”.

Maybe it’s just us but we thought that most people had read George Orwell’s “1984” at school and could clearly see that “Big Brother” is well and truly upon us and is growing at an exponential rate with the introduction of these kind of insidious systems that steal the freedoms and liberties that our diggers worked so hard to protect!

This system exists purely to help identify un-registered vehicles and suspended drivers, most of whom are in that situation because these government agencies have failed to comply with Section 8, Sub-section 12 of the Imperial Acts Application Act in the first place. Remember, that law clearly dictates that “All fines and forfeitures before conviction are illegal and void.”

These agencies are now taking on the role of Judge, Jury and Executioner, all in one! Instead of the police “policing” us, we should be policing them!

And, if that’s not enough, as this article shows - http://www.heraldsun.com.au/leader/north/new-victorian-sheriffs-officers-to-crack-down-on-fine-evaders/story-fnglenug-1226794387684 - they have just employed an additional 10 sheriff’s officers to help them in their quest to force people to “pay up” before anyone has even seen the inside of a court room, let alone been “convicted” of anything.

Mr Brendan Facey needs to understand the ramifications of the Imperial Acts Application Act – specifically the section noted above – and accept that people are not trying to “cheat” the system at all. Most people are genuine, law abiding motorists who have been targeted by a corrupt, revenue focused system, despite doing nothing “wrong”.

If anyone is trying to “cheat the system”, it is the Sheriff’s officers themselves who are trying to enforce fines that have not yet gone through proper due process!

- The truth about the police

Most of the people that we speak to have a strong dislike, and sometimes even fear of the police, yet we believe that this is unfounded. Most police entered the force with a true desire to “do good” and to help their fellow man. Unfortunately, however, this desire was corrupted from way back in the beginning, during their training. The powers-that-be forced these young people, often fresh out of high school, to sit through graphic videos of crushed cars and mangled bodies and they reinforced the lie that these things occur as a result of “speeding motorists”.

Now, as we have detailed on our Vision for the Future page - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/Vision-for-the-Future.html - for over 8 years now – click the “Crash Statistics” link – “speed” is only “a” factor (not “the” factor) in just 5% of accidents, yet that is what young recruits are brainwashed into believing.

So, with their genuine desire to help save lives, they go out in force to clamp down on speeding motorists with the misplaced belief that they are really “making a difference” when, the reality is, that they are simply glorified revenue raisers for the government.

There is a concept that many of us are aware of, that is, “you can’t fix a problem that you don’t know that you have”, so rather than “hating” the police or abusing them during their course of duty, instead, we would like to see Aussie motorists helping to educate the police about the truth about fines. Direct them to our website, urge them to read our e-book and, if you really want to challenge them, send them a copy of this video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IOsN-P5abVg

Please feel free to pass that video around far and wide, post it on Facebook and the like and let’s inform and educate not only the motoring public in Australia but also the policy enforcers as well.

Last month, we reported on this great article from the Sydney Morning herald - http://www.smh.com.au/comment/have-siren-will-harass-in-nsw-the-policed-state-20150322-1m504p.html - where the author detailed the fact that Aussie motorists were simply being used as “cash cows” for the government. Well, that same author followed up that article with another great article that followed the journey of the woman who was issued with that ticket, as she took it to court.

You can read that follow up article here - http://www.smh.com.au/comment/how-the-police-waste-our-time-on-a-massive-scale-20150412-1mj1te.touch.html In this latest article, he details how just 21% of police time is actually used on true criminal investigation, which we believe is outrageous – after all, that’s what we pay them for via our taxes.

He goes onto detail how police in NSW alone stop around 6 million people a year and issue them with fines, despite those motorists doing absolutely nothing “wrong”. As he says, “Most people just pay the fine, which is what the police and court system count on. It’s a growing revenue stream for the government.”

Thankfully, as we encourage our Members to do, the lady in question from his original article chose not to just blindly “pay up” and, instead, she challenged the fine in court and beat it! In this ANZAC Day email update, we want to urge all motorists to stand up and fight back against every unjust and unlawful fine that they receive – just like our diggers stood up and fought for our freedoms and liberties to be protected.

And, it’s not just us urging people to fight back either, it is retired police officers too. We urge you all to read the comments from Stan (not his real name) on our Advanced Membership Home page -http://membersonly.aussiespeedingfines.com/memberspage.php – and see why he also recommends a systematic approach to challenging your fines.

Finally, we would ask you all to read this short post from a retired police chief in the US, who explains why we have cameras, what the true purpose of police is and what the biggest obstacle is to bringing about some real change when it comes to true “road safety” initiatives - http://armstrongeconomics.com/2015/04/19/comment-from-retired-police-chief/

- Our friends at the Know Your Rights group

As many of you know, we have been working very hard with one of our founding members who has gone onto start the Know your Rights group – http://www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au/  – around the middle of last year.

We know that a number of our Members are interested in finding out more than just how to defeat unjust and unlawful fines and the Know Your Rights group cover a wide range of different topics from eliminating personal tax obligations through to challenging the banks and even expanding on the “Strawman” concept that we touch on very briefly in our e-book.

As we detailed at the beginning of this e-mail update, fines are just one very small part of understanding and fighting for our rights overall but they are a great place to start. If, however, you want to find out more, we urge you to check out their website - http://www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au/

Their website is completely free to access and there is a ton of great information on it. They also have a huge Facebook following, which you can also join for free – just search for Know Your Rights under Facebook or click this link - https://www.facebook.com/groups/602044286578320/  Please be sure to read the Facebook group, bumper stickers and business cards section at the end of this e-mail to find out how to join our Facebook group and support us too.

We were part of their Melbourne seminar last week in Deer Park which was incredible opportunity to learn a whole range of interesting and powerful topics and they are running another seminar in Adelaide in May and we would certainly encourage anyone who is in the Adelaide area to get along to that seminar if they can. You can find out more about the exact topics that are actually covered at those seminars, as well as reading and viewing testimonials from previous attendees via their Seminar page - http://www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au/seminar/

They also run a weekly internet radio broadcast and they have covered some incredible topics over the last 9 months or so. They have done a number of eye-opening interviews with various people, including: Darryl O’Brien (who used to run all the CLRG meetings), David Woods (an ex-police officer who now teaches people about their rights), John Vico (the law student who took on CarePark and beat them), Owen Godfrey (the ex-police officer who now heads up the No Speed Cameras party) and, Larry Hannigan (who wrote, amongst other things, “The Voice of the Constitution”)

You can listen in to their broadcasts live each Tuesday night between 8pm and 10pm, you can e-mail, text or phone them with questions live on the air and you can also download any of their past podcasts as well via their Radio Show page - http://www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au/radio-show/

The guys are huge supporters of the work that we do here at Aussie Speeding Fines and we encourage you to support them in return by joining up as a Member -http://knowyourrightsgroup.com.au/members/ - or simply making a small donation to help keep them and their radio show going each week.

As many of you know, we almost never endorse other people or products so you know that on the very rare occasion that we do, that we have absolute faith and belief in what we are recommending.

Again, keeping in line with this week’s ANZAC Day edition of our e-mail update, it’s all about learning about your rights, taking action and fighting back for our freedom and liberties, just as our fallen heroes did for us 100 years ago.

  - Latest Testimonials and feedback

Speaking of the know Your Rights group, we received a very powerful e-mail from one of their listeners, who also happens to be an ASF Member, and this is what he had to say about a recent matter that he took to the courts that has been dragging on for some time now:

An incredibly big thank you and congratulations to you Mike, Brenton and the rest of the team at KYR and ASF.

As a follow up to the email below which you addressed on RATFM on 21/4, I went to court for the appeal today.

WELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After shitting myself for the last 2 weeks, I listened to what you had to say about my email on Tue night and took it all on board. Mike, you simplified my case but more than anything, gave me the confidence to walk into the court reasonably confident and well prepared. I must have done a 100hrs preparation for a 10min hearing.

But what actually happened is what really gobsmacked me.

I didn’t have to say a thing!!!!!!!!

The SDRO didn’t turn up. They just provided a submission which the magistrate read through after which he said he upheld my appeal.

He explained that I didn’t know about the penalties (because I had returned them to sender unopened) and that the final penalty notice by email was not served properly.

The matter didn’t even go back to SDRO. He booked another court hearing after asking me how I pleaded, and after pleading not guilty we are going to court in June, which is what I have been after all along.

My take on this-

All the blustering and bullying in the correspondence with the SDRO and refusing to annul the enforcement order was just bluff. They were on thin ice and when it came to the crunch in the appeal, they caved in.

Mike, this is testament to what you keep saying about challenging everything because it’s only when we all do that, the system will finally take notice. A lot of their armoury is the intimidation by the system, the court rooms and the government agencies. It is based on fear, bullying and bluff but if you persist, you’ll come through.

Again, a huge thank you.

This e-mail highlights a fact that we have been saying for many years now – the minute you blindly “pay up”, that’s it, it’s all over, there is simply nothing more that you can do. But, the longer you keep fighting, the more opportunities that there are for things to “just happen” – like the agency representatives not turning up – that can ultimately mean that you win!

Dear Member,

We’re going to warn everyone up front this week that we are fired up! This is going to be a hard hitting, no punches pulled, e-mail update this week because we have simply “had enough” of the crap.

We slave away 7 days a week, 16+ hours a day and the message is still not getting through to some people. So, this week, we are making sure that the message gets through. Be warned that this week’s e-mail is going to be confronting and “in your face” so, if you can’t handle that then just delete it now and crawl back into your safe haven of lies and deception that the government keeps feeding you and try and sleep comfortably knowing that “If you’re not part of the solution then you’re part of the problem”.

If, however, you are strong enough of character to face the truth head on, to handle confronting facts and figures, that cannot be denied, and you are prepared to “take action”: and do something about it, then please read on …..

New “SuperCams” heading your way

There has been a lot of talk this past week about the new “supercams” that are being introduced in Victoria that will then, no doubt, filter through to the other States and Territories of Australia soon after.

It started with an article in the Herald Sun - http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/law-order/speeding-motorists-wont-escape-hitech-supercams/story-fni0fee2-1227010671008 and then A current Affair did a story on them - http://aca.ninemsn.com.au/article/8886389/the-new-super-speed-cameras- and the figures that were detailed in this story, in regards to just how much money these cameras are raking in, is just insane!

The fact that speed and red light cameras is already a $1 billion a year industry in Australia is bad enough but the fact that we, the Australian motoring public haveallowed the people that we elected into power to look after us to bring these new cameras in just shows what a complete and utter joke we are to them and how they are laughing, at our expense, all the way to the bank!

Now, we’re not sure about you but we do not like being laughed at, we do not like being made fun of, we do not like being lied to and we do not like being bullied – and that is all that is going on here. The various state governments are treating us like idiots, they are filling our heads full of absolute garbage – “Speed Kills”, “Speed cameras Saver Lives” and the like – and we are buying into it, opening up our wallets and handing over our already far-too-hard-to-come-by income for absolutely noreason!

Speed does not  kill, a speed camera has never saved a single person’s life and, for the morons that still believe “if you don’t speed then you won’t get fined” – please just delete yourself from our mailing list because if you still don’t get it after all of this time then there is simply no hope for you!

Are we being harsh? Are we being blunt? Good!!! Because we are at the end of our tether here. We just don’t know how to make it any clearer to people – speed cameras are simply there to rob us of our hard earned money, they have absolutely nothing to do with “road safety”.

The woman at the start of the ACA story says “We don’t want a nation of people looking down at their speedo” and that is all these cameras are creating. And, not only that but, just because you spend your whole time staring at your speedo , it doesn’t stop you from getting a fine anyway because these cameras are still fundamentally flawed and will continue producing erroneous readings anyway so, even if you always drive below the speed limit, you will still be likely to get a fine!

As the reporter says “It’s easy to see why State governments are such big fans of them (speed cameras) the money they are raking in is astronomical”. Then you have that idiotic NSW RTA President who makes an absolutely absurd statement that “There is no such thing as safe speeding”. Now, whether you want to admit it or not, we guarantee that every person reading this e-mail has exceeded the posted speed limit at one point in time or another and they didn’t have an accident, they didn’t kill anyone so this categorically proves that this moron is just repeating government propaganda rather than stating something that has any bearing at all in reality

Now, compare that with what motoring expert Sam Stevens says; “I don’t know how its helping safety when you get a fine 3 weeks later in the mail.” She then goes on to say; “A fixed speed camera or red light camera is not going to catch someone drunk, or someone doing the wrong thing on the road, someone on their mobile phone.” Owen Godfrey expands on this and explains that “Speeding cameras do not save lives, what saves lives is on-going education.” He goes onto to confirm that “Speed cameras are a billion dollar a year industry that governments are totally and utterly addicted to.”

Well, you know what you do with addicts, you either wean them off their addiction or you force them to go “cold turkey” – you do not keep supporting their addiction! So, we urge each and every one of you to pass this e-mail onto everyone on your contact list, share this section on Facebook, blogs, forums and anything else you can think of and ask people this simple question:

Are you going to continue supporting to “revenue habit” of the various state governments or are you going to fight back against every fine you get – using the step-by-step information that is contained in our e-book - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html – and help those poor, addicted government officials, that we elected to do our bidding, to beat their addiction!

At the end of the day, these new “super cameras” really aren’t all that different to the cameras that are already out there – current speed cameras can detect people from both the front and the rear and most can do it over 4 lanes now as well. These new cameras can be challenged just as easily as any other speed camera fine – they do not comply with Section 10 of the National Measurement Act, there are no “originating specifications” against which they are tested and they are just us fundamentally flawed and faulty as every other speed camera out there – including the numerous cameras that have been ordered to be switched off as a result of various independent tests.

Quite simply, you can, and should, fight every speed camera fine – as well as any other unjust and unlawful traffic fine – that you receive. As we have said a million times, the only way to put an end to this on-going madness is to flood the system with challenges, bury these agencies in paperwork, fill up the courts and ultimately, stop the money flowing into the government coffers.

If you don’t believe us then please be sure to check out the message to all Aussie motorist form “Stan” (not his real name) – who was not only an ex-police officer but also an ex-police Prosecutor. He sent us a detailed e-mail, which we have uploaded to our Advanced Membership website –www.membersonly.aussiespeedingfines.com/ - and it clearly explains why he believes that everyone should challenge every fine they get.

- More proof that it’s just about the money

Following on from the section above, we were sent another article from a few of our Members this week that details the fact that Transurban – the company that runs the toll roads in Melbourne and Sydney – raked in $1 billion worth of tolls but only paid $3 million in tax. You can read the full story here -http://www.smh.com.au/business/transurban-pays-just-3-million-tax-despite-collecting-1-billion-in-tolls-20140805-100le8.html

If you want to get really fired up, have a look at how much the CEO was paid – almost $5 million – and how much directors and top management were paid – $17 million. Remember, this is all money that was stolen from the motoring public by fraudulent means. All roads are created in “fee simple”, they belong to Us, The People and, pursuant to Section 92 of the Commonwealth Constitution, they cannot lawfully charge us to use those roads!

So, once again, we ask you – are you going to allow these kinds of absolutely insane figures continue – $1 billion in revenue, $5 million income for one person – or are you going to start fighting back and challenging every toll fine you receive?

Of course, the choice is yours but please don’t come back to us in a year or two – when tolls have been increased simply because “they can be” and when the fines for failing to pay tolls goes through the roof, because that is exactly what will happen if you keep blindly “paying up”. Remember, they will just keep putting the tolls and fines up, as long as people keep paying them, when they reach a level that people stop paying then they will stop putting them up – send them a loud and clear message, right now, that they have already well and truly exceeded that level.

Oh, and if you don’t believe us, we urge you to have a look around on our Facebook page and other similar Facebook groups because in the past few weeks we have seen a number of new company fines that have been issued for over $2,100 for exceeding the limit by just 3 or 4 k’s an hour. Yes, you read that correctly – if you have a company car, the fine will now come out to you with an amount of over $2,100 – even if you were only a few k’s over the limit!

How do they get away with charging those amounts? Because big businesses and corporations don’t care, they just pay them and this sends a message to these agencies that they can just keep putting them up.

Once again, you have been warned. We provide everything you need to know to fight back against speeding fines, red light camera fines, parking fines, toll fines and all manner of other traffic fines in our e-book – “Speeding Fines, What You REALLY Need to Know!” – but, at the end of the day, as they say, you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make it drink.

It’s all there, ready and waiting for you with step-by-step instructions - http://www.aussiespeedingfines.com/pages/E%252dBook-Membership.html – and we even provide you with a full 30 day money back guarantee. If that’s still not enough to make you take action then we simply don’t know what else will – and don’t write to us with some rubbish of “If it was free we would do it” because, seriously, if you won’t spend a measly $67 and show us that you value our time, effort and research then you certainly won’t value you anything that we give you for free!

See, we told you we weren’t going to pull any punches this week – enough is now enough, it’s time to seriously fight back!

- Further proof that the police are not who they believe and say they are

Thankfully, it’s not all bad news this week – in fact, we have a number of very positive stories to share with you – we just hope that the positive stories inspire you to fight back against the injustices that the “negative” stories detail.

Last week we included an article that stated that police officers were not employees of the States. Well, one of our founding Members sent us through this interesting article from the US - http://beforeitsnews.com/alternative/2014/08/north-carolina-judge-rules-police-and-other-government-agencies-are-actually-private-entities-advises-police-to-put-assets-into-other-peoples-3008176.html - where a North Carolina Judge similarly rules that police are operating in their private capacity and can be sued personally.

Now, this is fantastic news for any of our advanced Members that are aware of the distinction between operating publically as opposed to “in the private” and for those who understand the distinction between you, the flesh and blood man or woman and your ALL CAPS or Strawman name. Please be sure to check out the Know Your Rights group information on this subject, if you haven’t already, via this page - http://www.knowyourrightsgroup.com.au/strawman/

If you are fully aware of, and able to stand up for your rights – yet, another reason why it is so important to have our e-book before you actually get a fine, so that you know exactly what to say the minute you are pulled over – then this ruling means that you can easily sue a police officer right here in Australia for any wrong-doing – US rulings apply here as well and are used every day.

You will note that this ruling clearly states that police and other government “officials” are deceiving the general public – they are not what they are portraying to their constituents, they are not immune to prosecution and the public is being defrauded by these people – see 1:40 mark of the video. It goes onto say – around the 3:00 mark – that 99% of all law enforcement entities are private companies!!! You can read more about this incredibly powerful ruling here - http://rayservers.com/blog/north-carolina-judge-ridgeway-rules-govt-agencies–officials-are-private-entities-

- Latest confirmation that speed detection devices don’t comply with Commonwealth legislation

Every so often people question us about the relevance of the National Measurement Act and the WA Fisheries case that we include in our e-book. They refer to letters from Victoria that suggest that the National Measurement Act doesn’t apply to speed detection devices or they refer to correspondence from QLD police that suggests that their devices do, in fact, comply with Section 10 and a whole range of other arguments.

And, thankfully, every 6 months or so, one of our Members takes the time to write to Dr Richard Brittain, the head of the National Measurement Institute, to confirm that everything that we detail in our e-book is 100% correct.

Well, this week, we received a copy of another one of these e-mails, whereby a Member has written to Dr Brittain asking if any speed measuring devises (sic) that are used buy (sic) police are exempt from the National Measurement Act. You can read his exact e-mail below:

From: Jim xxxxx

Sent: Sunday, May 03, 2009 7:33 PM

To: Trade

Subject: Question??

To Whom it may concern

I would like to know if the speed measuring devises used buy the police are exempt from the

National Measurement Act 1960 (cth) And if so why and were can I get the exemption certificate that proves that fact.

As far as I can see the only exemptions are

a)      A quantity of reticulated electricity, reticulated gas or reticulated water

b)      Charges relating to telephone calls

c)       The fare payable for use of a taxi

d)      The charge for the hire of a motor vehicle

e)      Tyre pressures

f)       The expiration of the time for parking a motor vehicle

Your response would be appreciated

Regards

Jim

The reply from Dr Brittain – which clearly confirms that speed detection device are not exempt from the National Measurement Act – is detailed, word for word, below.

Dear Mr xxxxx,

I refer to your e-mail of 3 May 2009 to our Trade mailbox and confirm as follows:

1. Speed measuring devices are not exempt from the provisions of the National Measurement Act 1960 (Cth).

2. There is no exemption certificate attesting to the above.

I trust that this information satisfies your enquiry

Yours sincerely

Richard Brittain

We really don’t know how to make it any clearer than this – no speed detection device is exempt from complying with Section 10 of the National Measurement Act and, previous responses from Dr Brittain – which we have sent out in previous e-mail updates such as this – confirm that no device currently complies with Section 10. Therefore, every speeding fine is illegal and can and should be challenged – this includes any fines from the new “super cameras” that we covered in our opening story!

- Huge Parking Fine win

And, we are saving the best news article this week for last. This article out of Melbourne - http://www.theage.com.au/victoria/city-of-melbourne-to-refund-nearly-35000-parking-fines-wrongfully-issued-20140730-zycbz.html - absolutely made our week. It details the fact that the Melbourne City Council had to refund almost 35,000 wrongfully issued fines.

More importantly, this article highlights the fact that despite what the government, police and courts try and tell us, mistakes most assuredly are made, all the time. This is just a major one that happens to affect a lot of people. Rest assured, similar, although maybe slightly less major mistakes, are made on a daily basis, it’s just that the media only bothers to report on the big ones, that’s all.

In this case, it was 2 officers that weren’t properly authorised – mind you, they still aren’t and neither are any other council officers. In other cases, it’s mobile cameras that have been set up incorrectly, hand held speed detection device that have been used incorrectly, an incorrect speed zone has been entered into the data block for a speed camera or just the “everyday” issues whereby no speed detection device complies with Commonwealth legislation – see the section above.

At the end of the day, any of you who have ever been involved in business or in property would have heard of the old saying that “the deal of a lifetime comes along every day.” Well, the same is true when it comes to fighting fines – the opportunity to challenge a fine also comes along every day. As with any other opportunity in life though, you need to act on it!

- Know Your Rights group will be interviewing an ex-police officer this Tuesday

And, last but definitely not least, our friends at the Know Your Rights group will be streaming live on their internet radio program on RAT FM again this Tuesday at 8pm AEST.

And, this week, they will be interviewing David Woods. Now, for those of you who don’t know who David is, he was a police officer for almost 10 years until he “saw the light” and realised that everything he was being told by his superiors was a lie. He has now dedicated his life to uncovering the truth about fines, our Constitution and a whole heap of other areas.

So, no matter what you had planned for this coming Tuesday night, cancel it, put it on hold or do whatever you have to do to be in front of a computer so you can listen into the Know Your Rights broadcast live because this promises to be one of their best shows ever. And, not only that, but David will answer any questions you may have for him live on air!

- Latest Testimonials and Feedback

We have, once again, received a number of new Testimonials from Members who have successfully used our information and strategies to defeat a number of unjust and unlawful fines.

Our first e-mail is from a Member who has successfully used our information to defeat a number of different fines. What makes this testimonial so powerful is that it conveys the greater message behind fighting your fines and standing up for your rights – the feeling of power and freedom that you get as a result – something that is so hard to convey in our e-book.

Hi ASF,

Since first reading your book the biggest reward has been a sense of self empowerment. This is more priceless than ANYTHING to do with money.  Thanks to you opening my eyes I continue to educate myself in this field.  I’ve been more willing to receive fines as I refuse to play their game anymore.  I keep my eyes on the road because its safer than watching the speedo. I’m willing to drive right through a cop flag-down because I know they have no right to stop me.  I park where I need to and never ever pay the meter.  I never pay for tolls. So my empowered choices mean from time to time I receive ‘Claim’s and I happily refute them.  

Those bits of paper with threatening words on them stopped scaring me. I know who I am and I know what they are.  It’s clear to me that every single bit of resistance is a chip in the wall. Every single letter I send helps the next person, and helps influence the public servants mindset, and weakens their morale. It’s so important to defy them at every turn. Are you a slave? Then stop acting like one!

I’ve definitely made mistakes in my approach in dealing with the goons and those mistakes have been very valuable and educational. With the letters, it seems to be a case of ‘who can best intimidate the other, wins’. The three step letters work often, and the court election is often the deal sealer – sometimes one just hears nothing back.   My trick is to keep piling on the pressure – bury them in correspondence if necessary. It’s often not necessary but I do like to write my own follow ups.  

As the ASF book says – they don’t want to work too hard. Make it hard for them. Let them feel the heat.  They do it to us!! To be honest I don’t use registered mail anymore – an unnecessary cost especially as I don’t need to prove anything in court most of the time.  It definitely helps if you need to demonstrate how professional and serious you are however.   I have learnt that SPER are near impossible to deal with if the fine gets too old, and been happy to do volunteer work to pay off some fines which I see as really good karma for me and the community – turns the tables on the pirates. Just make it out its impossible for you to give them any money – interestingly the community service form has no threats for giving ‘misleading’ information. See how little authority they have?


I am at the final stage of cancelling a large SPER debt using a promissory note which is very exciting. Brisbane and Sunshine Coast councils are so, so happy to send threatening letters – even when they accept your court election they say how much its going to cost you and offer you the option to pay!! Surely that must be illegal – pursuing the fine after accepting the court election! Does someone know how to prosecute them on that?   They even use a lawyer in Caulfield (Melbourne) to send you stuff which is a third party – gotta be illegal?   They are happy to be bullies but display great cowardice in retracting the fine when I write back spelling out the reasons they commit fraud every day. 

God, I hate cowards, bullies and liars. What sort of person do you need to be, to do that kind of job?! When they retract the fine I have considered calling them on it but realise, wow there’s nothing I can do for people with such weakness of character.  They deserve my pity. I’m glad I have values and try live each day being of service and support to my community instead of being a thief without a spine.

My recent deal sealer said ‘ By registered platinum mail, in 7 days can you please send me the name, address and phone number of everyone whom has handled your claim against me including call centre staff.  I need it for the class action against Councils taking place.  It will save me a lot of time, thanks.  I also thought you’d appreciated being saved the expense & humiliation of being subpenaed.  You feel so entitled to my own information I know you’ll be comfortable and forthcoming returning the favour. Actually can you include their TFN’s also please. Does your insurance cover your employees for this kind of thing?”

The force of a mailed letter is always superior – it’s recommended – but with councils one can correspond via the form on the website and it’s done the job for me when overseas and saved me a lot of time.

Red light cameras always seem to go off when I have a japanese or chinese hitchiker from overseas driving – just the ways it seems to work out. It’s instantly retracted – I am glad the fine will be forwarded for them to be responsible for.   I just hope the address is easy enough for the officials to work out.

And our second is from a Member who successfully dragged a fine on for almost 2 years and then walked away without paying a cent! You will note again the reference to the confidence that this Member had from reading our e-book as well as the on-going support that he received from us.

Hey Guys,

Just wanted to pass on my thanks. I had a case dismissed at Mention hearing today. My alleged offence was Sept 2012, Laser Gun reading (in the rain, downhill). My election notice was “lost” and CC threw my further correspondence “in the bin”. My case was challenging a Warrant Revocation rejection, so all this time I thought I was fighting Civic Compliance. The Prosecutor made it clear today that CC (and extra monetary fines) were out of the picture and it was now just between myself and the issuing Officer and his Speed Detection Device.

The Prosecutor thought it was ludicrous that I would want to challenge a laser gun at a technical level and that I would have to prove that I was not speeding (I didn’t bother saying, “I don’t know what law you operate under, by I operate under the Commonwealth law of innocent until proven guilty”), but I did suggest that the equipment needed evidence of it’s capability. She showed me the papers and said here is the evidence (I kind of went ‘Meh’).

After all that, she said that I have a clean record, a good history of 28 years, and could also go for an Inquisition where the Magistrate may grant me a Sec 76. So later in the court room, the Mag granted me the 76, based on that the reading (12k’s over) was closer to the 10 and not the 25, so she would dismiss if I pleaded Guilty. I double-checked that no monetary fines would be attached, and case was dismissed.

Vic Roads had already docked me 3 points (threatening my loss of licence), and gave me a one point leeway for 12 months. That time lapsed and I’m now back to zero points. I don’t know whether they will add the three points again, but at least they are not getting my money.

My confidence has been solely in the information you have provided via your ebook and email correspondence, so thank you. I’m glad I didn’t have to take it to the High Court, and I’m a bit shitty that I had to plead ‘guilty’ when I wasn’t, but I guess that is to just brush their ego at the end of the day.

At least in the future, I will know how to tackle this from the word go.   


Best Regards,


Darren – Vic.
