This location could/should be on my list of North Coast Hall of Fame/Shame: the notorious Woodburn
"Slow right down it is only 50kms", is the shout that some back seat drivers coeee as we approach the digital dynamo....
"Oh Fuck, I think I was going too fast!" is the more common refrain.
The NSW Gov makes at least one Million a year at the Woodburn Camera; what is even more startling is that I managed to take a snap of the Pacific Hwy with not a car or juggernaut in sight, highly unusual on Australia's main East Coast road!
This morning Chris Gulaptis is the new state member for Clarence, after a by-election was held yesterday. The previous incumbent, Steve Cansdell, was forced to resign after receiving a speeding fine from said camera and then falsely claiming through a Statutory Declaration that he wasn't the driver. In NSW we call this 'doing an Einfield' after the case of a very high profile Judge who ended up going to gaol for a similar offense.
I am very sure that Mr Gulaptis will always slow down when he is visiting Woodburn on electoral business.
