If that's SOP for all jurisdictions, then that's fair enough, I s'pose.
A fair way to police this (other than to use rigidly inflexible speed cameras
and the drones that operate/administer them), would be for police to wave over a
"speeding" driver and if it's within that tolerance window, to caution them
about it. One, it stops the driver speeding through the school zone and, Two, it
allows the driver to check his clock if his car has one. It also alerts him to
the need to be aware of what he needs to do.
Having distinctive flags flying at the start/finish of the school zones during
their operating times would be one cost effective way to manage this, I feel.
After all, the idea is to STOP people speeding and placing children at risk. Not
to use them as opportunities to raise some extra cash and for police nuff nuffs
to get their quotas up.

Now Al, you know better than that - the tree-huggers won't let you do
experiments on sweet innocent monkeys. Or sour guilty monkeys. Or even
on a monkeys etc, whatever that is. Gotta treat them humanely, unlike
Neil Fisher / Bob Young
personal opinion unless otherwise noted.

What's wrong with doing an apprenticeship and being a good, old fashioned
Most of them these days earn better money than a general practitioner :)

Never said there was
just seems silly to limit himself to that when he could go much higher
Heard something silly on the radio the other day
someone was saying that some new tradies are too immature because they
are starting their apprenticeship as young as 17
Dunno where this fool has been but for years when I grew up you started
an apprenticeship at 15. These days you need to have a year 12
certificate before a lot of companies will take you on as an apprentice
