After footage of a truck driver being booked for speeding solely on the basis of a NSW highway patrol officer's estimate was viewed more than 1.2 million times since Saturday questions have been raised about the officer's methods and the chance of the fine being reversed in court. The video shot by truck driver Chris Smith in the western NSW town of Coonabarabran shows the bewildered transport worker challenging an officer's assertion that he was speeding. In the video the senior constable tells the truck driver that he estimated his speed and did not use a radar. "I'm an expert at estimating speed," the officer says. Scott Cooper of Speeding Fine Consultants says he has beaten all radar speed detection devices currently in police service in court and he believes the officer's claims are "rubbish". "What this cop has done is booked someone on guesswork," Mr Cooper told ninemsn. "If a cop is booking someone on an estimate and he has the availability of technology like a radar gun then it's just stupid." "Why would you just estimate cause it's a guess?" A NSW Police spokesman said "All highway patrol operatives are considered subject matter experts in the eyes of the court in terms of estimating speed." "This is included as a part of the training received by potential highway patrol officers. Any LIDAR or radar check that is done has to be reinforced with a valid speed estimation. When pressed for further details about the training the reply was "Training encompasses various forms of speed measurement and estimation." However, Mr Cooper said he has advised hundreds of people issued speeding fines based solely on officers' estimates and has had the fines overturned most of the time. The speeding fine consultant argues that no such training exists. "There is no school on estimating the speed of moving vehicles with the naked eye. They (police) can't do it and they have never been able to," Mr Cooper said. "If a police officer goes to training than he should have some identification that he has attended a course…. If they have attended a course we ask them for some paperwork to see what kind of accuracy they achieve.” He claims that police have never been able to provide such answers and this line of questioning has helped his clients have speeding fines overturned by magistrates/"
