Motorists have been warned by the Queensland Police Commissioner the game has changed on the highway and police officers will remove all speeding and other traffic tolerances.
“Expect to pay more fines and more often,” the Commissioner threatened readers of the Courier Mail newspaper.
He admitted the cash-strapped police force was revenue-driven and every officer will now be employed by the corporation under a new system of Key Performance Indicators.
In other words when the officer has a periodic KPI review of his earning capacity for the corporation, his promotion and salary prospects will be governed by the number of ‘fines’ he has imposed.
Whilst this system has been in operation unofficially for a decade or more, Commissioner Stewart has confirmed it for those hard-pressed motorists who have been victims.
Now it is time for all motorists to fight back!
The Melbourne-based Aussie Speeding Fines group has been doing a magnificent job in educating and assisting motorists to fight these unjust and unlawful imposts that statistics reveal have little to do with preventing road accidents.
The Queensland Police Service Inc, like most other states, legally exists only to generate income. The good Commissioner has admitted this fact and it is now every motorist’s duty of care to apply for court proceedings to fight any fine they receive.
The Magistrate’s court system in Queensland is overwhelmed at present because Attorney General Jarod Bleijie has created new statutes to cover the few remaining aspects of life on earth that his predecessor in the Labor Government had missed.
Like Imelda Marcos’ shoes, we now have a statute law for every occasion.
The courts will never cope with thousands of applications for traffic matters.
Every motorist should join Aussie Speeding Fines as soon as possible, before any traffic fines have been received to acquaint themselves of the novel, lawful processes available to protect themselves and their livelihoods from marauding and avaricious traffic cops and their political masters.
