"Exactly our intent. That, armed with Alex's comments, would've been good. We'd intended to go to court then this SDRO came up and we didn't expect the outcome we got. But the more we have these things on here, the better informed…"

"Alex, wish we'd had your input before! Well, this is a learning curve for us all, I guess. We'd purposely chosen words like "in my view' exactly thinking that in a court of law that might be 'safer' than using…"

Sir Trevor the Lesser replied to Pip Vice's discussion Bicycle Infringement Notice / Letter of apology received
"I was amused and impressed at how the Pip letter relayed what sounds like a vindictive issuing of the fine without overtly accusing the cop of that. I wonder, would it be wise to go into those details in the letter? I'm thinking if you need to…"

"Like!   Reads like you know how the system works...   In summary then: tell them what you want them to do, and let them form the view that the matter will probably fail in court ."

"Pip, I agree, well done on getting the SDRO to withdraw the infringement but if there is a next time you could do better with the letter. For one thing, when writing this type of letter it is important is to tell them what you want. They have…"

"when I had an altercation with some brute the policewoman at the other end of the phone said 'cant do anything unless you took a photo ' I was on my bike"

"Yes. Well, in fact he'd just photographed a policeman on Kent St as he wanted to post this onto the "Sydney Helmet Cops" warning about police! "

"Like!   Obviously there's a choice to make between objecting to a faulty TIN and just opting for court on the basis of 'not guilty'. Based upon your conjecture, if they have the chance of fixing a bodgy TIN up then…"

Jim Phillips replied to Pip Vice's discussion Bicycle Infringement Notice / Letter of apology received
"Well done getting the TIN withdrawn. I'm unsure about some of your advice regarding appealing to the SDRO. The legal advice I received is that the only time you should bother is if you don't intend challenging the TIN in court in which…"

"Kinda sounds like the officer applied the motor vehicle  rule that the phone needs to be not held"

Jason B replied to Pip Vice's discussion Bicycle Infringement Notice / Letter of apology received
"Yeah I looked closer at the rule today, and yet again, they've made a poor choice of regulation writing, as in the definition they've redefined hold as use. "

Bob Moore replied to Pip Vice's discussion Bicycle Infringement Notice / Letter of apology received
"This seems to go beyond the Road Rules, which say (300) that you can use your phone, (includes camera), if parked. Parked is only defined (in the Dictionary) as being stopped, it doesn't say off the road (or path). Anyway I am going to be a bit…"
