Woman’s anger over $3635 fine for speeding 6km/h over the speed limit in Melbourne

Under Victoria’s current road rules, exceeding the speed limit by less than 10km/h in a corporate vehicle will result in a fine of more than $3000.
A Melbourne woman found that out the hard way after copping a $3635 fine for speeding 6km/h over the speed limit in a 60km/h zone on March 3 in Melbourne’s east.

Jane Agirtan took to social media in anger, uploading a TikTok that has since been viewed more than 722,000 times.

The TikTok is captioned with the comment, “A bit excessive, no?”

In the clip, Ms Agirtan can be heard saying, “Six kilometres… Are you kidding me? Six kilometres, are you serious?”

The clip also shows that Ms Agirtan was busted back in January for going 106km/h in an 100km/h zone, resulting in a $3661.20 fine.

On the Fines Victoria website, it states that if a company car is issued an infringement notice, the driver must be nominated in order for demerit points to be applied to their licence.

“For some offences, companies will initially receive a company fine over $3000. This larger amount is to encourage the company to nominate the responsible driver,” the website says.

“Once you have nominated the responsible driver, that driver will receive a new fine in their name, and the penalty payable will be at the individual rate and should be significantly lower.”

Responding to comments on the social media site, Ms Agirtan said she had nominated herself as the driver to bring it back to the normal cost.
