A small group of concerned motorists is taking its case to the High Court, claiming that the state’s speed cameras haven’t passed through a process called “pattern approval”.

Pattern Approval is a process that sees measurement devices go through a testing and measurement procedure at the National Measurement Institute, and according to the SMH, it’s a required process for biological, legal, trade measurement, weiging and hospital equipment.

If the group is successful in its High Court challenge, there’s the potential for the Judge to overturn almost every speeding fine ever recorded on an allegedly untested speed camera in the state. [SMH]
