Red-faced top cop caught by speed cam­era

The Weekend Australian - - THE NATION - AN­DREW BURRELL

Western Aus­tralia’s top cop, Chris Daw­son, says “no one is im­mune” from the law af­ter ad­mit­ting he was caught speed­ing two weeks ago.

The po­lice com­mis­sioner said yes­ter­day he was pho­tographed by a speed cam­era do­ing 59km/h in a 50km/h zone in East Perth on Septem­ber 28 while driv­ing his pri­vate car to the Na­tional Po­lice Re­mem­brance Day Ser­vice at the Po­lice Academy at Joon­dalup, in Perth’s north.

The of­fence comes as the state govern­ment rolls out a $550,000 ad­ver­tis­ing cam­paign in which serv­ing po­lice of­fi­cers are shown in the back seats of speed­ing ve­hi­cles as a re­minder that the chances of be­ing caught are even greater.

Mr Daw­son said he paid the $100 fine as soon as he re­ceived the in­fringe­ment.
