Driver done for 1km/h over limit - without a speed gun

A TOWNSVILLE man has copped a $146 fine for driving 1km/h over the speed limit.

Jake Cassidy, 21, was pulled over on December 23 and accused of clocking 61km/h in a 60km/h zone.

Mr Cassidy was driving a company car on a delivery and is not convinced he was 1km/h over.

The police officer did not use a speed gun to catch Mr Cassidy but measured the speed by driving behind him.

"He told me I was speeding and I said I wasn't and it kind of went back and forth," he said.
