Know the law about speed traps

2017-02-09 06:02

ACCORDING to the prosecuting guidelines for speed-measuring equipment and traffic light violation monitoring equipment as published in 2012 there are quite a few regulations. To get to my point, if there is a camera to monitor speed, there should be a road sign set up not more than 300 metres before the said camera indicating a camera sign and speed limit.

Coming from Marina Beach going to Bucks Farm Stall there is no sign whatsoever indicating a camera trapping for speed. They have a mobile camera set up just before the stall so all those speeding tickets issued there are illegal.

Everybody who paid there tickets should get their money back. I know they are going to put up a sign now after reading this letter.

Make a note of date of erecting such sign so all tickets before that date are illegal.

Somebody must do something
