Ok so I have a question. Got two fines from Civic Compliance, regarding the fixed Camera pinging me apparently doing 117 on Eastlink in Rowville. I set my cruise for 100 on Eastlink because I KNOW there are fixed cameras. How to I formally dispute these fines?
I have a question
Re NSW Laws
The vx clubsport came with a drivers kit from factry wich includes a pocket knife. Now i know its illegal to carry a knife in a public place without a valid reason or tools. When i am approached by the officers of the nsw police force and they ask about the knife after a car search how do i go about the issue, also it does still have the offical pocket knife so its not like its been changed out
Well... You should probably just tell them that the knife came with the car..
Or to avoid issues, simply take the knife out of the kit and leave it at home.
Interesting. I have about 5 different knives/blades in my ute that I carry 24/7. Also one in my esky that's with me every weekday. Never thought of that.
I'm sure I won't get done for carrying a weapon, though.
It's when I go out in public after work with my Stanley hanging off my belt, I will get done one day for that.
When I worked in a hardware store many years ago. If we sold an axe or a knife we were told to cover the head or blade in a bag, so when the customer was leaving the store they would not cause trouble.
I forget the exact wording of the law but it was something like.
Going armed in public with a weapon to cause fear.
Pretty funny but that's the law and if you want it changed you have to lobby a politician.
Yea a axe is abit different to a lil pocket knife but il see what they say and play dumb if there was issues i think owners would complain to hsv
Did you know if you carry a baseball bat in your car it's a weapon, if you have a baseball with it, it's sporting equipment???
That`s easy where ever I go with my bat I always take my balls
What would want them to search your car???
I've been driving for over 30 years and I've never had my car searched (thank God lol).
I take my balls with me where ever I go :whistling:
Pretty easy dude was silly as a teen n hung with the wrong crowd
What kind of things (on cars) do police look for when they choose to pull someone over?
I'm tipping the following:
1. P plates
2. Canon exhausts
3. Slam factor
5. Stolen plates
6. Mobile phone use
7. Blonde hair, large breasts and a short skirt
I recently got pinged by an "obviously under-quota" Police Officer near Orbost (Vic country) for having a mobile phone on a suction mount fitted to the lowermost corner of my windscreen.
Hands-free bluetooth linked to the car.
Wasn't actually using the phone at the time.
"Obscured vision - It's within the wiper blade sweep - That'll be $85 thanks". :cops:
He also explained that any device installed above the manufacturer's dashboard height is also illegal for the same reason.
He then hopped back in his Highway Patrol SS - which I noticed had so many electronic entrapment devices piled up on the dashboard that he could barely see over it all.
Take that on board everybody.
Driver behaviour for a start. The phone stuck to their hand is a give away.
Dark window tint too. Remember under the regulations change it's now 35% minimum transmittance both front and rear.
As I always say: There are no 'quotas'. We can write as many tickets as we want.
Separate names with a comma.
