    Hi everyone

    I will be self-representing in a traffic infringement case that I have elected to take to court, could someone help with the following:

    a) Are council issued traffic infringement notice records held by council or police agencies?

    and

    b) How would I go about applying to the local government body for them to produce the infringement records (particularly the numbers of notice infringements issued within my locality in a certain time period) that would be in their possession and are relevant to defending my case against them for harassment and victimisation?

    My thanks in advance

    a) Council
    b) FOI request if they won't provide it.

    Not sure how numbers of other people with infringements helps your case and not relevant anyway. Magistrate is likely not going to admit the evidence.

    Intent is to prove over zealous officials, victimisation etc.

    Victimisation of you or you and others?

    The information you seek will have no bearing on your case.

    Think you have to file a cross claim of misfeasance or malfeasance, but then you open yourself up to having costs awarded against you if you lose.
