POLICE SCAM

As a local real estate agent I am often out on the road with appointments, I work in a very quiet "Village" style area called Dolls Point.
Dolls Point does not provide "Through" roads for any other suburb thus only visitors to the area and local residents drive around the streets.
Dolls Point is a sleepy bayside suburb and there is NEVER much traffic at all, so why then have the police been hiding at the top of Russell Ave which is a VERY wide 4 lane street and is marked only as a 50km/hr zone (Stupid), with there radar guns pointed down the road to un suspecting residents booking them for going 5 km/hr over the limit in a 50 zone on a street that you could safety travel at 60km/hr or more because it is so wide???
Because they are raising money for the government! look where not stupid ok your not doing this to save lives your doing it to "steal" money from unsuspecting law abiding citizens and its unjust!
One of my best mates is a retired police Sergeant, he only left the force 10 months ago, he recently told me at a Christmas B.B.Q that there was an UN TOLD QUOTER SYSTEM where by police officers where given TARGETS on how many tickets they should write a month.
So there you go, the poor old law abiding citizens of Dolls Point have been falling victim to the very people they look to and pay taxs to employ to protect them for the past 12 months in what only can be described as a Sting to meet Traffic fine targets or quoters. SHAME ON YOU ST GEORGE POLICE!

Yes you are right! The NSW police force do have a quota for traffic offences that they try and adhere to. I remember when the "offensive noise" law came in for car stereo systems, country NSW police were just hammering the crap out of anyone who had a sound system that went over 5db. Yes they will continue to be lazy and hide in suburban streets where there really is nothing happening and book unsuspecting drivers for going a few km's over the speed limit, it saves them from going out and doing any real work while still reaching their quota.

That just happened to me today in a Double Demerit weekend. He was parked on Russel Ave in a normal car. Totally undercover. Actually when you turn from Princes Highway to Russel Ave THERE IS NO SIGN SAYING THAT IS 50km/hr. So I just came from a 60km/hr zone into a much wider Avenue that there is no signage saying that it is 50km/hr. I had a fine for been 61km/hr that means 6 demerit points and a fine of almost $300. THANKS POLICE FOR USING YOUR TIME TO FINE THE WRONG PEOPLE. I WORK HARD, I HAVE A FAMILY. GO AND FIND PEOPLE THAT ARE ACTUALLY SPEEDING.

Would you like to raise a petition?? cause I have been booked for exact same thing today and I can’t see any safety reasons for what they did.
We need to raise our voices we really need their efforts toward the safety of the country and the roads

My husband was booked for the same thing, driving on Boxing Day 26 Dec 2019 with my daughter in the car going 61km/h not a residential street as such the Main Street of the highway with 4 lanes. He was fined $280 and 8 points on long weekend. I think its so wrong!! The same street next one along is 60km/h in Sandringham St is very similar. The Police guy was so rude too like he actually committed a terrible crime! I'd be happy to support a petition. My husband is a plumber and needs his license for work, he is now without all these points for 3 years!!!
