Australia has a "tax free threshold" currently around $18,000. Below this you pay no tax and the old age pension and most other welfare payments are below this amount.

What is happening State Wide is the pension programs paying 75% of regular pay, and no income tax, plus 3% raise a year is milking the state dry. Ex wife is drawing $90k a year as a retired HS Phys Teacher..

Just so you are aware, they do sporadic radar checks on the tollway. The Hwy. Patrol wait at the tollbooths, pull you over and give you a ticket. Thus far, I've not been aware of offering 'consideration' has worked. If you get a ticket, it's a royal pain in the butt. You have to go to Quezon City to retrieve it and, in many cases, attend a day-long seminar on traffic safety.

 

They set up between Diniluphian and the Tipo exit in the Subic direction and after Porac going the opposite direction.

 

A couple of years ago, I bought a radar detector. It's saved my butt several times.

Well, keep P 500 ready for the policemen's merienda, they will most likely pull you over. Just stating the facts.  :o

You can not pay them off on the SCTEX . If you are caught speeding it's a ticket and there is no way out of it.

Radar trap in SCTEX at the Subic end ihas been there everytime I have used the road this past three months. They must catch dozens of cars everyday.

I always think the speed limit on the SCTEX is too low. It's a good quality road, well clear of pedestrians and other normal road hazards, and it's frustrating to have to keep below 100kph when there are so few other cars using it.

They took my P500 or they would have taken my drivers license, and I would have had to collect it and pay a ticket.

Ditto what Chris said.  120Kph would be reasonable. Driving skills are too poor to have autobahn style no limit.  Flow of traffic from Tarlac to Clark was 130-140kph yesterday, and whenever possible I drive that speed and never seen anybody getting a ticket. No idea about Clark to Subic portion.

 

On the awesome new TPLEX was doing the same as was most the traffic. Only used that awesome highway once and saw no patrol vehicles. If you drive it often radar detector makes sense.  They are illegal in many US States and other countries (not sure about here) but  best to have a concealed with me thinks.

Before my trip a couple years ago, I made up fake licenses. I was driving up to Baugio and got nailed at the end of the tollway. I handed them a fake license and they wrote the ticket. They said I had to pick up the license in Quezon when I paid the ticket. I acted shocked and said why can't I just pay the ticket here and keep my license. He wasn't buying it so I drove away with the ticket and pulled another fake license out of my bag.  ...and no, I never went to Quezon

You don't see them. The radar is in a van or car parked along the roadside, in the rest stops, on bridges and at exits. The officers are at the exits before the toll booths. It's a good question about the legality. I conceal mine on the dashboard in the middle of the windscreen. Hidden in plain sight. :)

The vehicle is easy to spot and identify. It normally resides between Dinalupihan and Tipo when driving from AC to Subic.

In a surprise move last week, I noticed they moved it to approx 5km BEFORE Dinalupihan (going towards Subic).

Said vehicle is not an SCTEX yellow pickup truck.

Pay attention and you will be able to ID same.
