Fined for Speeding - 120 km/h Zone to 80 km/h Zone

Question:

When driving from a 120 km/h zone into an 80 km/h zone, how far after the 80 km/h sign can a driver actually be tested and fined for speeding?

Answer:

The Prosecution Guidelines for speed measuring Equipment states the following:

No prosecution may be instituted where the speed measurement was taken within 300 metres of the commencement of the speed limit zone, except with permission from the Director of Public Prosecutions.

Note however that the provisions of The Prosecution Guidelines for speed measuring Equipment are operational guidelines only and non-compliance does not influence the accuracy or reliability of measurement results. The decision of whether or not to prosecute remains at the discretion of the prosecutor.
