The stretch of road near our house is very well liked by the police.
Boleh katakan selang sehari mesti diaorang bersadai kat tepi jalan tu sambil pegang a speed gun.
I guess sebab the speed on that road changes from 70kms/hr to 60kms/hr so ramai lah drivers yang ‘alpa’ atau buat2 alpa and still pecut gak.
So, I guess memang ramai lah yang kena pinged by the police doing 70 in that area kot.
You nak tau what the fine is if you exceed 10kms over the speed limit?
If it is less than 9kms over the speed limit- $75
If it is between 10-19kms over- $150 and 2 demerit points.
if it is between 30-39kms over –$700 and 5 demerit points
if it is over 40kms- $1000 and 7 demerit points
(But I think it’s more nowadays tak silap.)
So, drivers yang sentiasa suka pecut gilers vavi kat Msian highways tu, kalau kena denda banyak macam ni setiap kali speeding, bangkrap lah you all kan, hahahaha….
So far, Alhamdulillah, we all tak pernah lah kena speeding fine ni sepanjang2 we all dah drive in OZ land ni.
Sebab both of us love to use the cruise control button everytime we all drive, hehehehe…..
So, tak lah our foot ter accidentally tekan the accelerator pedal and go over the speed limit.
I know we sound a bit anal kan but we would rather spend our money on other things than wasting them on speeding fines.
Satu lagi, kat sini (untuk sesiapa yang nak datang melancong ke sini and nak drive kat sini) you have to be aware of the speed limit in the school zones and the speed limit in built-up area (kawasan perumahan).
Walaupun that stretch of road tu speed limit biasa dia is 70kms/hr or 80kms/hr or 90kms/hr, during the school terms between 7.30 pagi- 9.00 pagi and 2.30 petang- 4.00 petang, kalau kawasan yang you lalu tu is a school zone, you have to reduce your speed to 40kms/hr sahaja!
Hari tu kat suratkhabar kat sini keluar berita, a cyclist (yang naik basikal) kena saman sebab he did 56kms/hr in a school zone on his bicycle! So funny kan, hehehehe.
And the speed limit kat kawasan perumahan pulak is only 50kms/hr. Kalau you drive kat Perth ni and you tak jumpa any speed sign on the road, it is advisable for you to drive at 50kms/hr only because that is the rule here. Jalan2 yang takde speed sign, maknanya the speed is 50kms/hr.
And 50kms/hr tu dah kira sangat lah perlahannya kan but believe me, ramai drivers yang kat luar sana tu yang drive on the road macam kura kura at 30-40kms/hr! (especially on the way to The Little Misses’ schools and you can always guess who is behind the wheel ).
Tension I kadang2 bila happen to be behind these people, hehehehe….
Dah lah drive sangat2 perlahannya, diaorang macam so oblivious to all the other drivers on the road, as though macam diaorang aje yang tengah driving masa tu. Sikit pun tak prihatin dengan drivers lain, tu yang buat I tension lebih2 tu.
And speaking of drivers, we saw this car a few months ago when we were coming back from our Nyamup holidays.
Can you spot the mistake?
Kalau I jadi this driver, malu giler I nak drive the car with such an obvious mistake. Sure lah orang akan kata IQ I tak berapa tinggi, hehehe……
