Fight that traffic fine, PR Matthews

In response to PR Matthews’ letter in TygerBurger of 7 June regarding the traffic fine on the M5.

Some while back there was a similar fine that was contested in court and reversed by the magistrate/judge.

It appears that distance/speed is legally allowed when one has to reduce speed from, as an example, 80 down to 60 km/h, as long as the correct speed is reached by the new limit sign.

The judge ruled that the same should apply when speed allowances increase. In other words, the driver is allowed to accelerate from the lower limit to the new required speed to reach the new speed at the sign.

In light of this, PR Matthews might wish to contest the fine.

I am not a legal expert, but I do remember the earlier incident.
