The Facts: Allegedly caught by radar speeding doing 96 km/h in a 60 zone
The Result: Dismissed. The radar operator was not properly trained in the use of radar and there was no guarantee that the evidence was accurate.
This type of offence carries a mandatory 3 month disqualification period on conviction or a 3 month suspension period upon payment of an infringement notice.
The client denied point blank driving over 90 km/h. There are guidelines on how radar is to be set up and used – we have repeatedly shown that some radar operators are not trained in accordance with the guidelines. Sometimes radar is used in circumstances where it should not be – on a bend, in rain, on a hill etc.
