GPS system helps waive speeding fine
A Dutch judge revoked the speeding fine after the man said his in-car global positioning system showed he was travelling slower than the speed recorded by the police.28 October 2008
AMSTERDAM - A Dutch judge has revoked a fine levied on a driver accused of speeding on the A10 ring road around Amsterdam.
The man appealed to the court, saying that his in-car global positioning system (GPS) had shown he was travelling at a speed nine kilometres per hour slower than that recorded by the police.
The judge revoked the fine on the grounds that the police were unable to prove that their speed checks - in place around a number of Dutch cities - were infallible.
