Australia: Anti-Speeding Activist Caught Speeding
An Australian activist was caught speeding on a road whose speed limit he helped lower.

An Australian anti-speeding activist was caught speeding on a road whose speed limit he successfully campaigned to lower. A speed camera photographed Anthony Grogan driving at 69km/h in a 60km/h zone along the Colac-Lavers Hill Road on November 23, 2003. Grogan pled not guilty in court on Monday.

A few years earlier, Grogan had successfully lobbied VicRoads to reduce the road's top speed from 70km/h to 60km/h. The court found him guilty and fined him $161.

Article Excerpt:
When cross examined by Grogan, [Speed camera operator Gary] Bray denied any suggestion he had been asleep in the camera car when the defendant drove past. He said any employee caught doing so would be sacked on the spot.
