I can see their point. It's not that they will necessarily ping people for 1km/h over, but that there needs to be a limit on the number of low level offenses one can get away with.  
I have always contested that fines are a "license to speed" fee. If you pay the fee you are allowed to continue to drive and speed.  
If you were not allowed to speed, then you would be incarcerated for doing so.  
Accumulated points seem to work for me and I think that was the point of the article.

In SA we lose 2 demerit points for speeding up to 10 kph plus a fine ( and $60 victims levy as well )
