Just received my licence renewal in the mail today which came complete with a nice little note about how the fact they've not caught me committing any traffic offences for three years means I get 25% off the cost. Now if what the TAC says is correct "average" motorists don't get demerit points, which would mean that the majority of the public would be getting the discount and the reduced price is in fact more than adequate to cover whatever associated costs it's supposed to be for. In which case this is an extra fee imposed on those who have already paid a fine. The alternative is that or they're using people who've been pinged by cameras to subsidise those who drive slowly, but who may still be a significant risk to other road users by virtue of the fact they drive slow because they have absolutely no idea (or interest) in what's going on outside their car. Seems to be a dangerous step closer to the idea of making people with traffic offences also effectively pay more for rego, TAC premiums etc. All those ads. demonising people who speed are now starting to make more sense, if their main purpose is in fact to give Government the public support needed to really start squeezing them for cash.
