You broke the law dude....and got caught by a police officer doing his job....referring to him as a pig does not help. You break the law you will get caught....eventually.
I agree. Some WD's might have careers in the law enforcement environment and might not appreciate being refered to as pigs.  ???

True.
My apologies for my pig "pig" comment.

So one "pig" does his job and we must now talk nicely about them??? Sorry boet but 1. WDs are nice people so no "pigs" could ever be WDs, and 2. "Pig" is probably the nicest way that I or many others could describe them.

I could, as I have done before, describe them truly but I will probably get warned or banned for language, even if it is true!

I got caught with the cage doing 210 in a 120 zone, with a venter trailer ( which licence had expired). Talked very friendly with the nice police gentlemen and got off with a warning! If you get caught speeding, you are unfortunately the one in the wrong, so don't take it out on the cop, be friendly and polite, and you will be amased at the response.

You're right. I forgot to mention that in my first comment.

Not that I gave him lip. I got out of the car, he asked me to walk with him, we had a look at the pretty picture with the crosshair exactly on my number plate, and then he started giving me my rights and arrested me. Like I said, those were out there to arrest people.

This new system of paying a fine to a charity is bad for all of us. It smacks of a cultural punishment system and it could evolve into some really nasty surprizes in a few years. However, best to stay within the law most of the time. I was once on a litle backroad and saw a speed sign showing 60. The next sign was 40 and I said to myself -die ***** sou nie die sign hier gesit het as dit nonsense was" and as I slowly  came around the bend I saw all the supebikes parked and a crowd gathered. Yes, some guy could'nt take a bend marked 40 kph.

I just got phoned by a client of mine who is a pig farmer. There seems to be a protest on the farm. The animals demand immediate and unconditional retraction of the reference to their species or they will sue for defamation. Seemingly they insist that they make a POSITIVE  contribution to humankind. :imaposer:

I sympathise with your farmer friend's pigs......... :biggrin:
If you can keep your head in the midst of all this confusion, you don't understand the situation!

The law should in all instances be applied the same, and I do not feel comfortable with the privilege of some to be able to dodge punishment by "donating" to whatever cause.

Should anyone go back in history will read that we who use vehicles for travelling for no reward are Travellers not Drivers. That's of course we are still using the English system which I believe we are. Therefore all ordinances subject to Drivers to not apply to Travellers and we have been hoodwinked into this system.

Ek ken 'n paar verkeersbeamptes vir wie ek respek het. Hulle doen 'n baie goeie werk en hulle doen dit goed. Tydens my lewe wat ek al bestuur op die pad is ek nog nooit sleg deur 'n verkeersbeampte behandel nie. Nie net in Suid Afrika nie. Jou eie houding en gedrag as bestuurder speel dikwels 'n deurslaggewende rol. Ek kom meer varke (pigs) op die pad te daagliks wat privaat motors ry en wat wit nogal is. As daar minder varke op die pad gery het, was daar dalk minder varke langs die pad.

When petrol was 39 cents a litre I could only ever do about 120kph ... that was the Yamaha RD 50, the silver one ... lying flat on the tank ...

When it hit R2 a litre I was doing about 160 ... that was the Yam RD350 ... in black and red as they all were ... 160 was the last numbers I could clearly see due to the bloody YPVS wanting to eject my ass from the bike ...

When it hit R4 a litre I was still at about 160 ... that was the Suz GS 750, the black one ... the speed limitation due to it's high speed flexible frame ...

When it hit R6 a litre I left the country ... did about 160 to the airport I recall ...

Now I'm older, not much wiser but still doing about 160 ... the Eddie Lawson Rep simply pisses to much oil at anything over that, the Varadero vibrates so much through the handle bars that my right hand cannot twist it's ear any further due to loosing all feeling in it ... and then there's the 1200 XT ... somehow 160 just feels about right for it ... but that's just me, don't take my word for it.

I guess I'm lucky then ...

Hey guys,

So, if you DO speed, speed safe and don't get caught.  :)

Couple of points:
The "justice" meted out to you was against the Rome statute of which sa is a signatory, it relates to using imprisonment as punishment, and is an abuse of the justice system, which demands that only people who are a flight risk or a danger are held for any period. Even bail is an insult, and presumes guilt.
30km/h over the limit is arbitrary, and doesn't relate to anything, not least of which AARTO, which isn't aplicable in the east rand yet.
Paying a R6000 "donation" in return for a clear criminal record is extortion, and defeating the ends of justice.
Reck and neg requires evidence, like the registration number of a motorist endangered by your actions, was any provided?

This "law" is fine print in the subcontract you have within another contract. At no point can it pretend to be "justice", "safety" or "lawful". Sticking your elbow out the window is the same as speeding. It's a gimmick.

Sorry dude, you're not the criminal in this story. You're the "mark".





It would seem to me that you are much more informed than you are leading us to believe. Perhaps we can contact you if we need legal advice in such circumstances?

I had the same thing but paid much less. Done 121kmh in a 80 zone on a dual road. Was trapped with a camera and received a summons to appear in court this morning. I went strait to the prosecutors office and he told me it is normally R2000-00 for that speed. I talked nicely to him and he brought it down to R1000-00. Now I must admit that I struggle to slow down at the age of 62. I bought a Yamaha XT 660 R  4 years ago to help me with the slowing down part but every now and then I pull the old Genesis 1000 out of the garage and go and wack it to about 240-250 kmh. Now call me a fool but after riding and owning bikes for 47 years it is hard to slow down.

Go away troll!!! Your handle says it all.

Sad to see how lots of  the "big guys" here on the forum never learned to be a man and take responsibility for thier actions.

With regards to speeding you have three options:
Don't speed
Don't get caught
Take responsibility for your actions

Or you might elect to become president or even better king or emperor of this wonderful country.
Then you can scrap all speed limits and we can all have some extra anarchy and lawlessness and an even higher death toll on the roads.
