My little sister is 17 and has received her first speeding fine.

There was a 40km/h zone that she was speeding through 60km/h.

She was pulled over in an 80km/h zone and accused of doing 85 in a 40km/h zone. He said he would let her off 10km/h and only charge her for 75km/h.

The under cover police officer was the only police officer in the car and he used his car speed to judge how fast she was doing.

My sister said she could see him pull out and accelerate up, by this time she was in the 80km/h zone.

He also marked her sex as being Male on the infringement notice.

Is there anything she can do to possibly reduce the charge to what she 'really' was doing?

Thank you. :)
