For those of you who don't know as of 1st November in Victoria the following rules apply .
25kms over the speed limit , 3 months loss of licence.
35kms over , 6 months
45kms over , 12 months.
These penalties are on the spot , so keep an eye on your speed and slow down .

I am sooo happy to be an old bloke who just plods around, when I was young I didn't even consider I was going fast until I was double the limit and the advisory cornering limits would also be half the speed it was possible to get the car through the corner.
I pity any motor bike rider these days, out in the country roll on through 2 gears and your walking for a year

On my old triumph sprint, I'd be walking for a year and not have got out of first gear!!
I can be walking for 3 months without getting out of 2nd gear.... but that's in a dirty old 1985 hilux 4x4 :)

Btw, it's been loss of licence at 25 over for many years now. You only lost it for a month though. They bought it in maybe 10 years ago.

So we have a car pulls over on the side of the Hume with his lights flashing and another one 200 metres up the road writing on the spot 12 month licence cancellations. I'm about to head east down the Princess highway. There is that much roadworks going on with speed limits changing every few kilometers it's hard to keep track. A perfect opportunity for an enterprising TOG officer.

I did a trip up to the Omeo area last week end , the speed limits around Sale are absolutely ridiculous , 110 to 100 to 80 to 60 to 40 to 80 to 40 to 100 etc etc . I understand and am more than happy to reduce my speed in a construction zone but when the speed zone is changing every 500m it gets a bit stupid , reckon some motorists will come to grief up there with these new speed rules .

Oh no, here come all the old conspiracy theories, again. Don’t some of you guys get tired of rehashing all the cop bashing shit? I sure get sick of reading your crap. The OP posted a law change to inform members, well done. If anybody has an issue with the new laws, take your issues to your local elected politician, cause it is the pollies who make the law, not the cops. Sheesh !!!!!

" when the speed zone is changing every 500m it gets a bit stupid "

Stupid, tiring and dangerous.

They need more consistence especially with tighter speeding laws.

Yeah, the last time I was booked was in 1998 on the NSW north coast. The speed limit was all over the place. I saw the cop and checked my speed at a tick under a 100, all good.....trouble is the speed limit was 80 and he pulled me over, I missed the change. He almost let me off, at least he reduced it to 10kph over. I wrote a letter saying I was stupid and they let me off. I guess that makes it official?

Agree to a point, however some cops will try anything to get their quota. By quota I mean you have to show you are doing the job.
There is good and bad in every job mate. By the way, one of my best mates was the Vic. Police Commissioner, another was Chief of Homicide, and a couple were Superintendents . I could tell you a few stories, but I wont at the risk of going down :eek:.
Read below and then repeat what you said.:rolleyes:.

Ah, Victoria, say no more :D:D:D
1.5% is not much, but agree is not right.
Don’t know why they would bother faking them. Mate tells me the breath test things are all digital and faking is easy to detect. Just dumb I guess.

They negitioageted (went on strike) a pay increase some time back, where they were given a pay deal based on increased
productivity. Raise revenue by what ever means needed.
