    I've got a mate who's gunna be real pissed off if they bring this into effect in Victoria.

    For years he's been running his Harley with the rego label purposely not on the bike.
    When he gets pulled up by a plod he haggles with them about the speed or whatever he was pulled up for then suggests that the hit him for not dispaying a rego label rather than the speeding ticket.
    The fine is only minimal compared to a speeding fine or whatever else and carries no demerit points here (or so he says).

    So now what's he gunna do :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Victoria has several cars running around now (could be all of them for all I know) that can scan 15 rego plates per second and colate the info from them as to weather the car is registered or the owner has outstanding fines owing.
    As they pump it in the ads on the radio, the first thing you will know about it is when they are pulling you up 30 seconds later.

    Ditch the label. It's not nessesary any more.

    The issue with the boys in blue is that they can use minnor crap to wind you up .

    There doesnt seem to be reason for claiming they are illegal.
    it hasnt any thing to do with wheather they do the job or not .
    Its a tool they will use if they want clobber you

    looking through as much imformation that I can fine. The description regarding placement of the label is very limited.
    The most I could find . Displayed correctly so that no imformation is obscured and can be read from outside the verlical.

    How the roll dosent fit that description is hard to understand. which i think supports my theory any complaints regarding them is not about the label holder and more about the Constable and the person they have stopped.

    Review of registration labels for light vehicles - submissions open until 7 October 2011

    Roads and Maritime Services (replacing Roads and Traffic Authority) and the Better Regulation Office are conducting a review of registration label requirements in NSW for light vehicles with a gross vehicle mass (GVM) of up to 4.5 tonnes (including passenger vehicles, motorcycles, small trailers and light trucks).

    Currently, NSW legislation sets out requirements for vehicles to be registered, and requires that registration labels be provided by Roads and Maritime Services (replacing Roads and Traffic Authority) and displayed on a vehicle. There is potential to substantially reduce costs for business and the community by removing the need for registration labels for the 5.9 million light vehicles registered in NSW.

    An Issues Paper is available on the Better Regulation Office website, with further information for public consultation. Submissions to the review are invited to be made by 7 October 2011, to the Better Regulation Office (details are provided in the issues paper).

    A final report and recommendations are expected to be presented to the NSW Government by the end of 2011
    ^ Its now 2012 so whats happened!

    The above link is from the RTA regarding a review to remove the need to display a label.

    Came across this by accident (Tho sure had heard about it somewhere) whilst trying to find out whether the roll type holder used by many bikers is actually ilegal.

    Bongo mentioned he was pulled over and informed that only the rectangle holder can be used. But I cant find anything that states this?

    Does anyone know where I can find this info, or even if any label is now needed ?
    Churchy looking at all the paper work and admendments to legislation in this document this is going to be buried for some time.

    Sorry about the size , Hold the control button hit the + button to enlarge it helps a little.

    Actually helps a lot, That was brilliant Bongo. But you could have said I needed to use - button to get screen size back down ! Took me ages to work that out ! :-)

    Sorry I assumed that if + made bigger - would have made it smaller (assumed again it was obvious). with those with a mouse wheel you just roll it up and down :)

    Just did a check to see where this is at.

    They missed the deadline to submit it to parliament and currently have not come up with a new deadline.

    Apparantly once submitted it will have to be considered by cabinet.

    As I said however - until it gets submitted, it is all up in the air!
