Palmer, the alleged creator and author of Aussie Speeding Fines, faced
court in Moorabbin charged with speeding and driving
whilst unlicenced. Rather than test his own legal theories in court, he
decided to plead guilty. He was sentenced to a fine of $2000 and one
month disqualification from driving. He was unable to explain why he should never pay a speeding fine ever again.

A website called
aussiespeedingfines.com claims it can tell you how to avoid paying any
parking or speeding fine. It proclaims: "HOW
and WHY you should NEVER pay a speeding fine or parking ticket ever
PROVEN, step-by-step tips to BEAT all speeding and parking fines."
I suppose that also means you don't ever
have to worry about the demerit points and any licence suspensions that
may go with the traffic fines.
Many people have asked me whether the
legal opinions, strategies and advice provided on the Aussie Speeding
Fines website (some of which also appear on www.fightfines.info, and
other sites) actually work. The following pages explain why the answer is "No!".
Both aussiespeedingfines.com and
fightfines.info advise motorists who receive a traffic ticket to send
letters back to the enforcement agency in an attempt to avoid the fine.
The major difference between the two sites is that
aussiespeedingfines.com charges people approximately $67 for
essentially the same information but packaged with additional material
that is both inaccurate and irrelevant. The main product provided by
aussiespeedingfines is a set of "pre-written letters" which the author
suggests you should send to the enforcement agency that booked you. The
site makes the bold claim that doing so will allow you to avoid
liability for the traffic or parking infringement that you have
If you try out the free download of the Aussie Speeding Fines ebook you will see it regurgitates much of the free
information that is available on the Internet about how police detect speeding
motorists and what you can do to help yourself. It also includes some
bizarre and dangerous legal theories and strategies that are more likely to cost you your licence rather than save it.
As for the pre-written letters that
aussiespeedingfines.com provides, you can easily download the same or
similar letters for absolutely free on the following pages (below) or
from several other
sites on the Internet. I do not endorse or recommend the use
of these letters. Using these pro-forma letters is very likely to
damage your chances of winning your case, and has almost no chance of
saving you from licence loss or financial penalty. Click the links

have no problem with people representing
themselves in court to fight traffic fines. In fact, I recommend it to
people in certain cases. But I do object to people paying good
money for information that is not only incorrect, but positively
dangerous to rely on. If Mike Palmer of Aussie Speeding Fines had
consumer's interests at heart, he would make the Aussie Speed Fines book available as a free download, and perhaps ask for donations from all his grateful
fans. But instead, he is making large profits from selling bad
legal advice, he tries to hide his identity from his customers and he
pretends to have legal knowledge when in fact he has no legal training
whatsoever. The sole purpose of this site is to make consumers aware
how easy it is for anonymous con-men to rip-off vulnerable people by
selling junk online. This site lifts the veil of anonymity and
deception that the Aussie
Speeding Fines website tries to hide behind.
