This section contains a number of traffic law articles that are likely to be of interest to you. The article on how to beat a speed camera provides some general comments about methods used to beat a speed camera and radar/lidar instruments. Unlike every other page of our site we do not give much information away. The main reason for this are that we don't want the police and prosecutors to be aware of the possible areas of attack.

Please click on the article you would like to know information about. But first consider the information below about the unique service we offer:





The unique service we offer

We will attend a police station to view the ICV footage, evaluate the evidence and then provide you with advice as to whether we can win your case or not.

If you have a speeding fine that you believe has been issued incorrectly either as a mistake or deliberately by the police, we can assist. If the police involved are Highway Patrol officers it is likely that the alleged speeding offence is captured on in car video. We have successfully defended a number of cases based upon the in car video footage. I want to explain to you a service that we offer people who are undecided whether they are guilty or not of traffic offences. But, before I do I need to explain briefly how the ICV footage works.

The in car video (ICV) unit records everything that occurs after the blue and red lights are turned on by police and for a period of 30 seconds prior. Police normally position the ICV camera to show drivers offending behaviour. Most of the time the ICV footage supports the police in their version of events. However, there have been many cases where the ICV footage actually proves that the alleged offender is innocent.

How is it possible to show that you are innocent?

The ICV footage displays longitudinal and latitudinal markings. These marking indicate exactly where the police car is at any time. The ICV footage also records the time in hours/minutes and seconds. Therefore you can measure how far a vehicle travelled in a certain period of time. From that you are able to calculate the speed of the police vehicle and on many occasions the speed of your vehicle.

Some police who use a single eagle radar attached to the police car will have the ICV footage linked to the radar so that we can see the radar speed on the footage. Sometimes the radar detects another vehicle other than the vehicle stopped by police. By viewing the footage we are normally able to determine which car is being detected.


where to next?

In NSW, traffic offences are treated seriously. Therefore, it is important to get competent legal advice as early as possible, whether you have received a penalty notice, had your licence suspended or been charged with a serious offence. Our lawyers are highly experienced and understand the difficulties you face without a licence. We can guide you through the process while dealing with the various authorities related to your matter.
