Biggles, don't pay that fine, it is invalid!!

There are too many electricity posts and big signboards in view and these affect the speed reading they got, so much so that the reading could be out by quite a lot. Lodge an objection according to the regulations by the DPP: GUIDELINES FOR PROSECUTION WITH REGARD TO SPEED MEASUREMENTS

If it was a Radar speed trap

2. GUIDELINES FOR PROSECUTION WITH REGARD TO SPEED MEASUREMENTS BY RADAR EQUIPMENT NOT LINKED TO A DATA AND IMAGE CAPTURING DEVICE

2.1 SITE SELECTION
When selecting a site for a speed measurement exercise, the following must be adhered to:
2.1.1 Site selection must be done during daytime for day and night-time operation.
2.1.2 There shall be no large, stationary, or metal objects (e.g. patrol vehicle, bus shelter) within a radius of 50 metres in front of the radar SME.
2.1.3 There shall be no metal road signs or vertical flat surfaces within 15 (fifteen) degrees on either side of the aiming direction, within a distance of 200 metres of the antenna.
2.1.4 The equipment may only be used where there is a clear view, any obstruction taken into account, within 45 degrees of the direction of aim over a distance of 600 metres.
2.1.5 There shall be no high-tension cables within a radius of 100 metres of the antenna.
2.1.6 There shall be no discharge type lamps (e.g. sodium or neon) in operation within 45 degrees of the direction of aim within 100 metres of the antenna.


If it was a Laser speed trap

3. GUIDELINES FOR PROSECUTION WITH REGARD TO SPEED MEASUREMENTS BY LASER EQUIPMENT
3.1. PREPARATION FOR MOBILE SME's
Prior to the machine being used, the following checks must be carried out and recorded:
3.1.1 A vertical and horizontal scope alignment test, at a distance of at least 100 metres must be done at the start and end of each speed measurement shift and whenever the equipment is moved.
3.1.2 A fixed distance and zero velocity test shall be done:
(a) The validation distance must be at least 100 metres.
(b) The distance error must not be more than + 0,2 metres.

The photograph says the distance is 86.4m regulation says; AT LEAST 100m!!!!!

Already paid. It is a laser system and the 100m is only for validation when setting up. Interesting info and it took some digging to determine if it was radar or laser. If it was radar the sign definietly makes it invalid.

Hi Guys
Just to jump back to last years 2018 Goerapan Dune trip, how can I get all the photo's that Janus so kindly paid for.
Was there perhaps someone that downloaded the whole batch that can share it with me, seems a bit crazy to only be able to see them for the week.
Otherwise does anyone have Janus' email so I can get them from him, or the photographer?
Wanted a few for our office walls.
Thanks
Vanessa
