Has anyone actually fronted up to court and had a fine quashed? I'm not talking about saying something cute to the copper and he just throws it in the bin..

Anyone gotten out of one? Could be for anything, pregnant wife in the back, whatever..

Slightly off topic, but I know someone who got out of a red light ticket because they stopped in the middle of an intersection for an ambo..

Anything like that or whatever..

even more off-topic, I have actually heard (well, urban myths maybe) of people getting insurance covered, paid for and no excess, when cause damage to their vehicle by avoiding a ambo, firey or police... ie: jumping a kerbs, scraping close to other cars etc etc etc...)

I did, 210 km/h in a 100 zone, no court. Police let me off when they seen a work collegue in the back seat with his arm on the front seat. I didnt have to say a word when i stopped at the hospital. Had i waited for the amublance, he would of been dead, it hadnt even dispatched by the time i got to the hospital.

For you kids out there, NEVER reach over a PTO shaft with a rake to shut off the PTO drive.

Well this isn't about a speeding ticket - but I know of a guy who got off a traffic ticket because the copper wrote on the ticket that he run an orange light, and the light was amber (ok same colour I know) but it actually held up in court and he got off!

In fact, never go near a PTO shaft without proper guards on them, and if they, God forbid, don't have guards. Be very careful if you simply cannot avoid them... Being a farmer, I've heard of some nasty accidents, and being some 300-400 kays away from Perth, hospital service isn't exactly all that great either. Thank God for the Royal Flying Doctor's though, they are a bunch of hero's!:)

my dad drove his car down a hwy and was done for speeding on the way to selling his car. once sold, the new owner drove along the same hwy and got done for speeding. my dad got both fines, went to court and argued that he had sold the car after the first offence and in before the second. he won, new owner got the second fine.

I can't remember what a speeding ticket even looks like. I've only ever had the one for going over the limit by 6 kph & that was 32 years ago.
