So those of you with verrry good memories might recall I was pulled over after a few weeks of riding (so this would be october, maybe november) by some bored cops for an RBT (must have looked a bit wonky, but hey I'd only been riding a few weeks :grin: ). Anyway, they noticed on my license I was on my Ls, but there was no L plate on my bike. Earlier that morning I cleaned my bike and put on a new L plate as last one had become a bit soggy. I then went for a short blat up mccarrs creek and on the way home was when I was pulled over, so it must have fallen off somewhere along the way. When he told me I had no L plate on I wasn't too worried as I'd heard of people having the same problem before and just being let off, and my lack of concern was probably semiobvious. Thats possibly why he wouldn't accept my reasoning that a piece of cardboard is going to fly off at some point and told him the rta did not supply any advice for attaching L plates nor do they provide a stronger plate and that I genuinely wanted the plate to be on so people would know to be wary since I was new. This guy didn't care about what I had to say at all, and when I questioned why questioned him why he couldn't understand that it might fly off and asked if he'd ever ridden before he pointed to his boots with the leather protector thing on. Pissed me off that he would fine me when he was in the best position of all to understand my predicament. So yeah, $180 fine and 2 points off my car red P plate license (4 points). So I put in an appeal and didn't hear anything until last month when I got a notice saying I hadn't signed the appeal form I put in and they could do nothing until I did. A day or so later I got a notice saying I had $180 due. So put in the resigned appeal. Just got a letter today saying: Total BS that it took that long and that I was issued the fine in the first place, but I thought I'd post this to L and P platers who think they wont have a problem not putting your plates on. After my incident I laminated an L plate and bolted the bugger under the plate holder and plate.
