A Queensland police spokeswoman would not say why the fine was withdrawn and would not confirm an ABC report that the issuing officer had gone on leave.
A statement issued by police said all members of the public were able to appeal a ticket.
“As a private citizen, she exercised her legal right and wrote a letter to the Officer in Charge, in the area where the alleged offence occurred, seeking for the ticket to be withdrawn,” the statement read.
“This is a process open to all members of the public who have been issued an infringement notice.
“Mrs Stewart received a response in writing from the Officer in Charge outlining the Infringement Notice had been withdrawn.”
