if they were really all about traffic calming and not revenue raising then why raise the fines ?

Because the govt are keen to keep the playing field even <sarcasm
meter off the scale>. If they only raise the points, then everyone
will hurt the same, but because the govt is sleeping with the rich end
of town they felt it was only fair to penalise the poor people more.

So if you speed and are rich you lose some points and don't notice
the cash. If you speed and are poor, you lose the points and your
kids starve for a week.

Yet another way the govt is keeping things fair and watching out
for the well being of the community... NOT.

For 40kms' over the limit they raised the demerit points by 1 but raised the cash by $650!!!! That's a 300% rise in cash, but they are not revenue raising..

Best way to avoid not adding to the revenue, DONT SPEED. Just a thought.

Hee hee hee... I love this one. Even though I bitch a lot, I subscribe to it.
It really is so simple, but most people don't get it. Dont speed=no files.
If everyone did it then speed camera's wouldn't pay for themselves and
would be shelved.
