"Changed the title to a quick answer, now anyone who has their first off like me has the same problem if they use search they'll have a quick reference. Thanks for all the advice." PS I added a bit into my original post as to why the police were there ie because ambulance was called to the scene for precaution. And some of the advice I found useful I've also added. Oh and I never ended up receiving a fine so it looks like I passed the P5 criteria. Hi I crashed today at no fault but my own. I was on Pacific Hwy approached traffic lights that changed to orange. Slowed down and when I reached about 20km/h my front wheel slipped out from under me. The road was wet for your information. Well my best friend called 000 to get an ambulance; the rest of the time I was lying in a stretcher with a neck brace. So I guess police were there to document the incident. I've been reading through threads with the same subject heading. Not much information. I just want to know has anyone actually successfully appealed to a negligent driving fine. I'm a really careful driver and rider, even more so today because it was wet. I've had nothing against my car licence (full car licence now) & so far nothing on my bike licence (P bike licence) until now. Is there any point for me to appeal? You might ask just take it on the chin which I normally would, but you see I'm being made redundant from work; this coming Friday is my last day so the fine is gonna definitely make it hard for me financially. I just like to know about your experience before I do anything. Thanks everyone.
