Greetings to all motorcycle riders from the Raging Bull. I believe this topic may well be of interest to the vast of majority of motorcycle riders, traffic camera infringement notices. Recently I received 2 of the above-mentioned sources of aggravation in the mail. Unbelievably, these infringements were sustained on the same stretch of road, separated by about 20 Kilometres. One penalty was for exceeding the posted limit by 4KPH whilst the second was a terrible excess of between 10 and 15 KPH. OK, I just know some of you will already be saying something like, "you d...head" or something even more derogatory. But before you psychologically dismiss me as a tool, let me just say that this is the first time I have been 'stung' in more than 10 years of consistent riding. The other issue was that normally I like to go hard as it were, everywhere, whereas in this particular day, just for a change I decided to just chill, take it real easy and enjoy the nice weather and for a change, some of the gently flowing scenery. I was riding my Ducati 1098S, very gently, a couple of gears lower than usual to help the machine move smoothly, as apposed to hunting, farting and grunting in higher gear. The weather was clear and sunny, the traffic was very light; this was midweek, early afternoon when most people were working, the perfect combination for enjoying a cruise. The bottom line here is that the 2 so-called 'safety cameras' were placed in locations that were, on reflection, in situations that were conducive for maximizing government revenue and yet, in positions whereby the relevant sections of highway were straight as an arrow and certainly rated highly in overall safety margins. I am not complaining per se about the actual penalties, because I was just not observant enough on the day, and because of that issue alone, I probably deserve what I received. The issue however goes a little further because, I am more than certain that a police officer on mobile patrol would not even look sideways at someone who may be travelling at the heinous rate of 4KPH over the posted limit. That same officer might just possibly pull you over and have a chat for doing the 10 -15KPH over the posted limit, and then, with some humble pie conversation, admitting liability and talking shit about the wonders of a Ducati, there is a high probability the said officer might use his discretionary powers and issue you with a warning at best or maybe a reduction in penalty worst. Think about it. When you ride your machine on a highway that is relatively free of traffic, and you are travelling at approximately the speed limit, in other words, there are no immediate physical references such at other vehicles around you, then there is a more than even chance you are not going to be looking down at your speedo for an opinion of your velocity. Infact, looking down at any time at your instruments is not only foolhardy on a motorcycle, but also unbelievably dangerous. Most of your movements on a motorcycle are intuitive and referenced by things around you and the sound, feel of your machine. After all this, all I want to say here is that mobile speed cameras are nothing other than revenue raising machines for the government and do absolutely nothing whatsoever to change driver/rider behaviour. I certainly will not be changing my modus operandi so traffic camera office...."FOXTROT UNIFORM CHARLIE KILO YANKEE OSCAR UNIFORM!
