Custom Number plate rip off

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by removed-6, Jun 4, 2006.

  1. Why do custom motorbike plates, which are smaller, and we only get one for the back, cost the same as car plates? What a rip! :evil:

    Don't we love the Government :furious:

    sorry, had to vent...............
  2. Hahahaha $170......maybe over there in SA, try $395 in Vic :shock:
  3. In the news a couple of years ago, it was alleged that Vicroads were charging a premium for custom plates.
    In their charter? it stated that they were not allowed to make a profit from selling/providing number plates.

    Just as well Bracksie was in power and ammended the laws to save pricktoads arse :roll:
  4. When you go into a NSW RTA half the place is covered in premium color number plate advertisments.
    Theres more number plate ads than safety and road rules signs and pamphlets.
    Its illegal to get your own colored plate made though. Based on some safety BS no doubt :roll:

    Are they suposed to be running a government department or a comercial business?
    Since they do seem to be a business the ACCC should step in an break up their monopoly :twisted:
