I recently received a fine $369 for speeding 55k in school zone.
I been working from home and its been 2 months I haven't left outside of My LGA (above 5k). But on the day I got fine I have to go to see my Specialist and didn't realize that school zone is still active and also roads are so empty. The road is actually 70k and still I am driving below speed limit. Actually later I found that the School Zone Sign which flashes at School time was covered by tree and that's the reason I couldn't see it. I think nobody in Sydney have ever seen empty roads on weekdays when school zone is active.
I know its a school zone and I need to drive carefully but I think it happened because 1. Roads were empty 2. School Zone Sign is covered by tree
Just asking if anyone have received a fine in School zone is recent days and have successfully got out of it? Do I have any chance?
It's Woodville Road in Sydney.
