GPS Beats Radar Gun - July 2nd 2007 (source)

A MAN has escaped a speeding fine by producing a GPS readout of his vehicle's movements showing he was travelling 21km/h slower than police claimed.

Remarkably, it's the second time in a year Brett Pownceby has beaten traffic authorities.

Last July, the Cororooke farmer forced CityLink to cancel a $11.97 fine after he pointed out his rusty, derelict old tractor could not have been the vehicle snapped on its tollway.

This time the 47-year-old battled a policeman who said a radar gun last month caught him doing 121km/h in a 100km/h zone near Warncoort.

Mr Pownceby was issued with a ticket alleging he did 119km/h.

To fight the charge, Mr Pownceby downloaded data from the global positioning system satellite tracking device on his dashboard and took it to Corio police.

Faced with that, police withdrew the ticket.

However police have since said that this was an error, and the ticket should not have been withdrawn.

They said other motorists should not expect to escape speeding fines by producing satellite tracking records.

However things could change after a Sydney court threw out a speeding case when a man produced a GPS readout of his car's movements.

Mr Pownceby said: "It's annoying. All I want is for them to get it right.

"If I didn't have a GPS sitting on my dash, I'd have been gone."

Mr Pownceby's readout showed his speed, the distance he had covered, and his exact location in snapshots recorded every few seconds.

He said he was travelling at 100km/h when booked by police on May 12 on the Princes Highway near Nanny Brown's Hill at Warncoort.

Opposition transport spokesman Terry Mulder said Mr Pownceby's experience cast doubt on the accuracy of police radar guns.

He said if Mr Pownceby hadn't been able to produce the GPS data, he would have had to pay a $215 fine and cop three demerit points.

"How many innocent motorists who lack onboard GPS units have been wrongly fined by Steve Bracks and Bob Cameron's dodgy police radar guns?" he asked.

Mr Mulder called on the Government to investigate the incident and ensure all hand-held radar guns were correctly calibrated.

Mr Cameron's spokesman, Alex Twomey, said Victoria Police had told him the officer should not have withdrawn the ticket.

Victoria Police spokeswoman Natalie Webster said the ticket had been based on a legitimate radar detection, and that the police officer who withdrew the ticket several days later had "incorrectly considered it to be competing evidence".

She said the ticket should have been reviewed by the traffic camera office.

Ms Webster said the traffic camera office did not record why tickets were withdrawn, so she could not say how many tickets had been withdrawn as a result of GPS readouts.

"The production of a GPS report alone to avoid any speeding infringement is insufficient, and any application as such will be rejected," she said.

"In the absence of other corroborative evidence, the TCO would proceed with the speeding infringement."

Mr Pownceby said the GPS and software cost about $470.

"I'd recommend it for anyone doing a fair bit of travelling," he said.

The use of satellite tracking systems is booming, and companies advertise their products as a way of disputing police fines.

Hire car companies in the United States are also using them to check speeding by their customers.

In Victoria, the Transport Accident Commission is testing the use of GPS in heavy vehicles as a way of limiting speeding by truckies.
