I am driving past more and more RAPID camera equipped police cars with their lights flashing having pulled over some dreadful infringing member of society. It has also been ages since the ACT Government issued registration labels. This raises the all important question…
Where do we go to see how many cars are (caught) driving unregistered here in the ACT, compared to previous years? How can we identify whether the infringements are genuine (I forgot vs I couldn’t be stuffed vs The paperwork didn’t arrive)? and finally, how can we see the staggering amount of funds that the new system of RAPID detection, coupled with not reminding people when they get into a car that their rego is due this month…..
The cynic in me can’t help but believe that the overall system is now designed to increase revenue through people being forgetful. I’m safe as the wonderful Mrs Kirk has a spreadsheet in the budget reminding us of when each of the families 4 cars are due for rego / insurance. But others may not be so lucky!
