    Default Legally avoiding speeding fines

    http://www.speedcamerasuk.com/snooper-syrius.htm


    Speed camera and laser guns detectors, illegal in the south but legal in the north. Some people also have jammers in their cars which are illegal.


    If photographed by a speed camera, if you 'cannot remember' who was driving ask for a copy of the photo. In 95 % of cases they drop the prosecution, its their legal duty to identify the driver commiting the offense.


    If done by a speed gun, ask for a copy of the calibration cert, speed guns must be tested at regular intervals and issued with a calibration cert, its your legal right to see the cert. In many cases the calibration certs are out of date.
    The prosecution is illegal.


    If court doing 100 mph + get a barriester to represent you in court, it will save you your licence.

    the best way to legally avoid speeding fines is to stop speeding.

    The amount of lunatics I saw on the roads this weekend was frightening.
    Actual morality is doing what is right regardless of what you're told. Religious morality is doing what you're told, regardless of if it's right.

    So Terry do you want to tell us about other crimes and how to get away with them?
    Surfing for child porn maybe? Hint: clear out your cache. Tell them other people had access to your PC but you can't remember who.
    Robbing a bank: You had to dress yourself in the dark and inadvertantly put your wife's tights over your head. The gun was a gift from an old friend on his death bed. You wanted to get it valued by the bank manager.
    Acceptance of bribes and/or tax evasion: The money was simply resting in your account. It was a Stamp Duty matter.
    Rape: But m'lud she was wearing a very short skirt.

    once again, terry posts utter rubbish.

    The Gardai are not obliged to produce a Calibration Certificate for the device that was used to measure your level of speed in a car.

    In fact, they do not even have to prove that the device was in "proper working order".

    Maybe sounds unbelievable. But it's true.

    Well there is an actual way of avoiding paying speeding or any other traffic offence fines in Ireland. Its quite simple really. If the fine is say E60 then send in a cheque for E65, because it is above the legally required amount under our legislation they cannot cash the cheque, however, as you can prove that you sent them at least the amount of fine then they cannot prosecute you. Catch 22. It does actually work!

    Gah...discriminatory, as usual. What if you don't have a cheque book? 8) Letting bank account users get away with it whilst not offering a similar loophole to cash payers.
    We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when creating them

    And you want unity with that place


    You have a legal right under EU freedom of information act to view data on from equipment used to prosecute you as part of your defence.

    If the garda are refusing this they are in breech of EU law.

    And most likely they dont even have up to date certs.

    Don't you just love the banks! They reallly have their uses.

    All you have to do is to get someone you know with a cheque book to write the cheque in your name and you endorse it on the back. Same effect!
