Assuming that the matter took place in NSW… your little sister can contest the factual issue of what speed she was actually traveling at.
In fact if her instructions are true and correct (as I assume they are) she should contest it!!
However, if she chooses to defend the matter, she will be looking at a costly defended hearing in the region of $3,000 which she may not win given that it will be her evidence versus that of a Police Officer.
A cheaper alternative would be for her to make representations to the Area Commander seeking a reduction on the basis that she simply was not traveling at the speed alleged by the Police. Unfortunately, our general experience is that representations are only successful in approximately 10% of our applications.
