the following relates to this thread. read it for a background. https://netrider.net.au/forums/viewtopic.php?t=48341&start=0 ---------- weeeeell. didnt this just get interesting. on the 18th of March, i received a letter from Vicroads. this basically stated i have been convicted of an excessive speed infringement, and my licence has been suspended. and if i dont hand my licence over in 14 days, i cop a $500 fine. WTF? i thought i was still waiting on the new TIN. i check the TIN numbers, and the one on this vicroads letter doesnt match the old one. yet the offense listed is the same date, and same speed as the original. i rode into Vicroads to speak to someone about this, as the phone said i would be waiting a minimum 20min to be answered :roll: had a lady look over everything, then go check some stuff on a computer, and generally take a long time. basically i was told they dont know why my licence is suspended, and yet i have received no new TIN in the mail. go ask Civic Compliance or the Informant of the offense. i stopped in at Knox copshop on the way home, and spoke to a constable. he had a look at the paperwork, and was fairly sure the new TIN number on Vicroads letter corresponded with the re-issue of the old TIN. so basically it had been processed, fixed, mailed out, and vanished. lucky me. i then called the Informant once i was home. he confirmed he had issued a new TIN, waay back on the 1st of February. and suggested i call Civic Compliance. i call CC, and they confirm everything thus far. and the fact they have my current address correct on file, means they couldnt care less if it got lost in the post, they did their part and also my fine is overdue, and about to accrue extra fines on top they bloke at CC gave me an extension on the payment, which was good. and theyre posting out the TIN again. i now need to seek more legal advice ASAP, once i have this TIN. oh, heres some interesting dates for you. 19/1/08 date of offense 25/1/08 TIN cancelled 1/2/08 new TIN issued 1/3/08 (28 days later) my licence suspension kicks in 18/3/08 letter from Vicroads 20/3/08 call Vicroads/CC, find out im suspended etc, cease riding for 20 days, i was riding on a suspended licence, with no way of knowing about it i need to check some details now, as i had my licencce checked up @ the Spur recently, the officer simply wrote details on his list, as they were pulling everyone (on bikes :evil over. he would check/process the details later. so now i may be up for riding whilst suspended if that was after the 1st. then, through a lack of concentration, i think i got done by a speed camera at 2am going to a mate's place. i was just riding along, no traffic about ANYWHERE, minding my own business and flash, flash. i wasnt intentionally speeding, but i wasnt checking my speedo, i was just riding quite comfortably to the conditions. i looked down immediately and i was doing about 100. in an 80 zone so that looks to be another fine and maybe even another riding whilst suspended charge. so ive got alot on my plate at the moment. needless to say, im not riding untill everything is sorted, and i have a licence. www.netcycler.net.au , anyone?
