Just quickly, my plight is that I was having a dry ride home on Australia day about 11pm in the evening, clean streets. There were two definite flashes as I rode past the safety camera at the Victoria Rd and Evan St intersection. Double checked the light was green, shrugged it off and went home. On a little further research I learned that NSW has been switching safety cameras into dual red light and speed cameras. I didn't check at the time but I would say I was doing roughly 70 kpa in the 60 zone, maybe a little more. So that would explain the flashes, unfortunately. Since I only have a P1 motorcycle license the standard demerits I will incur will be at least 4, being Australia day it's an easy 8. I lost another 2 points about 6 months ago for not displaying my plates. So I'm guessing if I was pinged I am looking at a pretty decent license suspension. It's unfortunate since I ride to work (hospital) and was planing on working also with the paramedical services at my hospital, although there is a rule that you cannot lose more than 6 points in 3 years. So I might have jeopardized my job prospects for a few years now. (i) Does anyone know whether these new safety cameras are in operation. I read on the RTA website "The roll out of Safety Cameras at new sites is on hold pending the outcome of an Auditor General's report requested by Premier Barry O'Farrell". Although I am not sure if that has anything to do with the camera that flashed at me. http://www.rta.nsw.gov.au/roadsafety/speedandspeedcameras/safetycameras/index.html (ii) I don't have a criminal record history or any other speeding road offenses. What are the chances of having the demerit points for this offense impeached in court by a magistrate on the basis of good character? Is there a zero leniency policy on public holidays? Any other useful advice would be appreciated. Peter.
