As you know every year at easter the speeding message is rammed down everyones throats
Well today I was travelling south bound with my wife on the Bruce Highway near the Pine Rivers bridge doing the speed limit (100kph) when a late model blue van came flying up the side of me
I had to take a second look at it when I seen it had "every K over is a killer" plastered all over the side of it
It was a mobile speed camera Van !
We watched it overtake every car in front of us and get a good kilometer ahead of the nearest car before it branch off heading towards the gateway
(it was a shame I didnt have my camera to film it )
I hoping of on his mates that usually sit down that way got his photo

should have logged the time and the number plate of said vehicle and let the newspapers know what they were doing
in all honesty it should be lead by example NOT do not do what i do ,do as i tell you rule

Were the lights flashing? No police vehicle is allowed to exceed the speed limit without siren or lights ON. Only in a few circumstances, but none of those existed today here in victoria.

If they were flashing then yea, it's ok. Even though the vehicle is a mobile speed camera, if needed the officer(s) can be called to duty elsewhere.

No they dont have any lights as far as Im aware of to flash , and it would be interesting in hearing what sort or emergency a speed camira responds to

I though about reporting the incident but I would have prefered to film it first
so there was no denying what we had just seen ,we tryed to find my camra but I must have taken it out
There were plenty of other witnesses as well
