How bloody enoying is it when moron's have to slow down to almost 20k's under the speed limit when passing fixed speed camera's.
I have to put up with this nearly every god dam morning on my way to work and it pisses me off.
What are these people thinking, it not like you'll get done for doing the speed limit or even a few k's over

AAAAaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

especially on the freeway heading north, the 110km/h speed camera, everyone does 80 down the hill past it. fucking annoying

I only have one dash backlight working(far right), so i can only see from about 100-180 at night(coincidence?), so i'll often slow down heaps or try and put my phone infront of it so i can see :)

I also don't like people slowing down massivly when cops are driving either. A paddy wagon is driving through traffic to chatswood this morning, and the guy in the fast lane slows down to about 60(where everyone wants to do 80), it's not like general duties can book you for road offences, and even if it were highway, as long as you're off yours Ps you won't have a problem. I look like i'm doing something wrong when everone slows down 10 below the limit, and i go past on the limit(no pun), then i get pulled up for an 'RBT'. The p-plates and the car don't help the situation either.

yeah in traffic most cops dont appear to give a crap if youre doing a little over the speed limit.

but yeah, anytime people see a cop car parked somwhere, even a paddy, yup they hit the brakes.

dont they realise that if they can see it, IF they were radaring they would be busted already hahah dumbasses

Yes they can - they just don't want to do the paperwork.

Don't they have to send the details to highway patrol to issue the fine? or hold you until highway gets to the scene? That's what's happened to me.

funny you should mention that, ive been pulled over for speeding by a patrol car, they posted the fine to me. the highway that busted me gave me the ticket on the spot. and the time i wasnt drag racing (lol) the paddy pulled us over and we had to wait till highway arrived because they apparently ran out of tickets.
