Townsville man fined $146 for doing 1km/h over speed limit

For all the people out there following the fine for the 61km in a 60 zone there has been a result.

While we might have got the name wrong (being Kyle) the ticket is real and was issued for 1k over the limit.

After Australian Street Car was contacted by the Courier Mail, myself and one of their journalists spend the day trying to track down this person.
We had thought the name might be false but between the two of us we ended up getting the right person in the end.

The fine has since been confirmed as correct but the police have since retracted the fine saying it was wrong.

We think this a win for all motorist, not for speeding but to show the power of the people and the media can play in correcting a wrong.
If you ever feel like you have received a fine incorrectly and have proof please feel free to contact me on [email protected]

Thanks again to the Courier Mail for taking this up and running with it.
