Well? http://www.news.com.au/story/0,23599,22027246-2,00.html July 06, 2007 08:05am IT was supposed to be a tightly kept secret but South Australia's top cop admits he blundered yesterday by making public the speed limit tolerance level in Victoria. The tolerance level is a margin given to motorists above the speed limit as a benefit of the doubt. SA Police Commissioner Mal Hyde told a Budget estimates committee on Tuesday that Victoria's speed tolerance level, generally believed to be 3km/h, was in fact 6km/h. Mr Hyde refused to detail SA's tolerance level, saying if he did motorists would treat that as a speed limit. Mr Hyde yesterday said he was wrong to comment on Victoria's tolerance level. "I made some comments during the Parliamentary estimates committee on road safety because the questions were related to the tolerance level here in South Australia," he said. "I didn't expect the comments in the South Australian Parliament would become a matter of public interest within Victoria. I have spoken to (Victorian Police) Commissioner Christine Nixon about that. "It probably would have been better for me not to make any comments about it."
