    Hey,

    Today I got pulled over for speeding, gave my license to the officer and he walked back to his bike for a minute then came back and gave it to me. He didnt mention anything about the fine other than I will receive it in the mail.

    I arrived at my training and everyone said he is supposed to give me the ticket then and there. Is this right? Can they send it? He didnt mention how many points I had lost or anything . .

    Any advice?

    That is not right. They can post out at a later date.

    Did you admit you were speeding when asked if you know why he pulled you over?

    A tip, never know why you were pulled over, police telling you that you were speeding to get you to agree is a form of entrapment.

    Yes, they can. If he could be bothered to go back and do the paperwork, you will get it in the mail like he said. If he couldn't be bothered, you got off lucky.

    Police don't need you to agree that you were speeding. They will still give you the ticket regardless of your thoughts. If you disagree, you then take the matter to court. Clever Police officers will not say "Did you realise you were doing 100 in the 80 zone back there?". Because they won't want your answer to be "I thought it was 90 officer, I disagree." The Police don't want a confrontation or argument on the side of the road, thats what the courts are for.

    A smart officer will generally say, "Any reason for you not abiding by the speed limit back there?". Most people will realise they actually were speeding by a certain amount and answer with many reasons or even say they don't know. Alot of people are nervous or pissed off and will then forget to even ask how much they were speeding. At this point, the officer will ask for the licence, go back to the car, write the ticket and then bring it back to you. Only then will you know your speed that they clocked you at. You will probably then begin to complain once you see the infringement details, but as I said, the courts are where you fight the ticket, not with the officer on the side of the road. He will advise that if you want to dispute the ticket, then the details are on the reverse side of the infringement notice.

    This is based on WA. Unsure if Vic has different court system, infringement notice forms etc.

    Faiirly well the same.
    If you were speeding and you know it, cop to it straight up. Good chance if the copper isnt a douche you'll get warning provided its not the 11ty millonth time.

    I asked the cop that pulled me over how fast i was doing, it just seemed to make him angrier. Though i knew for a fact he had caught me because he put his lights on from a fair distance!
