HWP got me the other day, couldnt catch up to me on the freeway or get a radar lock luckily as i was splitting :s but got me just off the off ramp at 39 over(6 months,$430), dropped it to 32(1 month,$380) because i wasn't being a smartarse..

i know 39 over on a public road stupid etc, but i thought it was an 80 zone and it wasnt. shit happens..

to the point..

the cop said I had 1 month to keep riding, then i had to stop riding/driving for a further 1 month.

is it 1 month/30-31 days or 28 days exactly?

and will vic roads send me out a confirmation with the exact dates? last thing i wanna do is get done whilst suspended because i got the dates wrong by a day or 2.

cheers
Chris

Unlucky man!

Do you have to go to court?

It is usually from the day of sentence to the end of the suspension time. and really, is 1 extra day going to kill you? Just assume its 31 days without riding.

If you don't have a court date, I would contact dept of transport and see what they say.

You'll get a letter telling you when your suspension starts and to send your licence to Vicroads. They will send your licence back to you when it's finished.

What are the details, you might be able to fight it depending on the specifics of where when and how they "radared" you etc. It might be a good point in time to go see a lawyer rather than suck it up if you need your license etc?

yeah wait for a letter in the post. ive heard a few noobs stop driving for a month and then the letter shows up telling them their suspension hasnt started yet lol

i havent heard of needing to send your licence in tho. ive been done speeding twice but i chose the 1 point for 12 months option.

You'll definately get a letter in the mail. They will give you an option to choose the date that your suspension starts or they will choose one for you.

I got 6 months for 45km's over when a bus pulled out on me. I cracked the shits and over took the bus and the car in front of it which happened to be a D-car. Lucky me.

I rode for another 1.5 months then got a letter which asked me for a date to start my suspension on, then faxed it back.

You shouldn't have to hand your licence in unless you are disqualified which is different to suspension. More for DD's etc.

Don't think I'll fight it. Work Is only 1.5 ks away and the train station is the same.

He couldn't get a reading on me on the freeway but he said he made a very conservative estimate at 125ks. I think I was probably at 145 or so... Yeah stupid to do those speeds in broad daylight... That's what led him to following me and catching up just off the off ramp. Happened to be a 50 zone and I thought it was an 80 zone. Still would been 10 over anyway.

So even tho it's only a 1 month suspension, I'll have to give my license to them? Fair enough for a cancellation but if it's only 1 month?

Sorry to hear you are loosing your licence mate but at least it's only for a month. Over here you have to be pretty unlucky to lose your licence, I dont think any of the Irish lads have ever have.

I'm assuming your roads are 'safer' than ours because of that, but I'd be interested in seeing accident stats for both countries to see what difference no inforcment is compared to heavy inforcement of the road traffic laws.

You'd think that, wouldn't you...

Also, Chris I forgot to ask, were the HWP tailgating you? If so you could argue that you feared for your safety

I really wish they were but I left them too far behind me due to splitting. I didn't even see him in my mirrors

Might speak to a legal aid but I think I'm lucky to have 1 month instead of 6.

But he has written 82-89 on the ticket. I'm guessing of I fight it, he may say I was caught at 39 over and I could get 6 months instead of 1

So you're saying that he wrote on the ticket that he didn't actually know what speed you were doing?
nah on the freeway he said he made a generous estimate that i was at least 25kmh over the limit, thats why he gave chase.
then i turned off the freeway and about 500 meters down the road he caught up with me..

when he got a lock with the laser/radar/lidar thing i was at 82, then accelerated through a corner , he then got me at 89 then i saw the party lights/heard sirens and pulled over.

ticket says 82-89. 4 points $380 and suspended for 1 month.

if he fined me for the higher one it would have been $440 and 6 months suspension.
