Unsure if its the same in Vic but in NSW 30km and over needs to go to court to try to get leniency even if you have a clean driving record.

When I was young got done for 30 and over many times on the bike. 4 points $450 and no automatic loss of license. Now its 3 Months in NSW or even worse 6 months in Victoria is just insane.

Such a nanny state.

I couldn't live in such a nanny state, although Sydney isn't too far behind.

read initial post - no one has posted useless contributing replies, as I asked for that not to happen.

I have never disputed what I have done, I merely seek advice from other that might have gone through a similar situation.

So if you can do the crime then man up and do the time. Not like you were just over or anything but 40 over. Kinda like me getting picked up pissed as and saying ohhhh please I didn't mean to down those 12 beers...

For those who think that speeding isn't such a big deal, consider this: the kinetic energy of a moving body is equal to half the mass of the body times the square of the velocity. Comparing a car travelling at 100 km/h and 140 km/h, the car travelling at 140 km/h has nearly twice as much kinetic energy (actually 1.96 times) as when travelling at 100 km/h. That means in a collision, twice as much destructive energy can be transferred to the car and its occupants, other vehicles and their occupants, or to other objects. You've seen the TV news, so you know this is real.

This is of course quite separate to the increase in stopping distance should you have to brake, and other considerations such as the condition of the road itself.

Concerning the first point, we were travelling on the Bruce Highway north of Brisbane yesterday. There's a section in the 110 km/h zone where chevron's (V's) have been marked on the road, with signs recommending you keep two chevrons distance between you and the next car to allow safe stopping. Trouble is, when we tried that, there was always some moron who would dive in.

Concerning that second point, I don't think that there's a public road in Australia where it's safe to travel at more than 110 km/h. Even the best roads here are goat tracks compared to those in Europe.

If you want to drive fast, buy a crash helmet and go to track days at your local raceway.

True but I understand the ops need to drive for his family. Agree with a licence loss for 45kmh + but 30+ is harsh.

Only thing is the OP is not blaming anyone but himself - just looking for options in his predicament. I don't really think you can blame anyone but yourself for speeding.

So if it was your wife an kids coming the other way and the OP hit them you'd still have the same view :

I don't give a shit what the op says and why should I. He openly admitted he was doing 40 over the limit and is crying he got caught.

If you condone his actions then your a fool as well.

I haven't squealed or blamed anyone else! I am 100% at fault - I have not denied this.

All that i am doing is trying to work out what options I have, if there are options available I'd like to lessen the pain that this will cause to my wife and young children.

He's not looking for sympathy Pav, he's asking how he can pay his dues and get on with his life. No one is condoning speeding in this thread

I'm pretty sure that I've seen you doing over 40 outside Advan, so don't act all fucking righteous here... Or do u only use the tune and meth on the track?
