Hoping someone can assist me with the following incident. Recently I was recorded by a "red light speed camera" doing 74 in a 60 zone at around midnight. I was quite surprised at this, so I went back to review the sign. When I returned to the warning sign, it became apparent that a tree (sapling) had been planted in front of the sign which was partially covering both the camera warning sign and the speed limit sign. The speed limit sign being partially covered was quite easily misinterpreted as being 80, not 60. I sent pictures to the NSW State Debt Recovery Office (SDRO) as part of my submission requesting a review, however, they replied by stating the following. ......"We considered the circumstances you presented. We also consulted the Caution/Review Guidelines, legislation and photographic evidence. Our investigations conclude the penalty still applies. We acknowledge the time you took in supplying the photographs. However we have no way of determining if they reflect the situation at the time of the offence. If you think the sign need attention, you can contact Roads and Maritime Services ( RMS) on 132213."...... Another point regarding this fine, is that there are usually several warning signs leading up to a camera, however in this instance, there are several access streets leading to this main road which bypass the warning signs, so the only warning sign is the last one before the camera which was the one partially covered by the sapling. Does anyone have any recommendations in relation to this offence, as I believe it's a clear case of revenue raising rather than an attempt at road safety. Thank you!
