I was driving from Sydney to Brisbane and was pulled over. Was fined for going 129 in a 100, driving excessively in right lane and not displaying P plates. First ever offence, thankfully, the cop waived the P plates so I kept my licence. The cop car had a full orange bonnet I’ve never seen before and I think was hiding as I did not pass on highway.
At that speed, from a parked position, how long could the officer see I was in the right lane for? Not even a minute, which I feel is ridiculous haha.
I understand the law is keep left unless overtaking but was taught that the left lane is the slow lane and right lane is the fast lane. As I was going basically 30 over the speed limit, I was not going slow and impeding traffic at all.
I will obviously just cop the fine but do you guys think the punishment is excessive? Speed limits are lower here than other countries, fines are higher, starting to believe the revenue raising spiel.
