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 again!" and Simple
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 received.
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.

I 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.
