At the court hearing, you will have the opportunity to challenge the evidence of the police officer and give your side of the story. You challenge the evidence by asking questions and if you are unrepresented the court will assist you with the wording of the questions. You are entitled to bring along witnesses to give evidence in support of your side of the story for example if anyone can give evidence about the timing of your movements that day to prove that you could not possibly have been speeding at the time alleged. You will need to suggest to the police officer that the notice has been altered and ask when and why this was done. Your aim is to challenge the validity of the notice and show that you could not possibly have committed the speeding offence at the time alleged by the officer and suggest therefore that the offence cannot be proved because the notice is unreliable.
The key to success is to be as well prepared as possible. Aussielegal.
