If you think the petition is about renewal reminders, think again. Oh sorry, you apparently cannot think nor read.

I don’t really know what the petition is about because you didn’t summarise it here. Why would I click a random link from a first time poster?

I’m happy if you pay for the costs of having the sticker.

If someone is willing to use stolen plates on their car, what do you think the odds are of them leaving the actual rego sticker on it?

Seems like a huge administrative costs for very little benefit.

I referred to the vehicle that had its plates stolen, which still had its sticker in place.

And did you receive a registration price reduction when the stickers were no longer provided?

And how often would such a situation occur? Often enough to justify re-introducing the re-issuance of rego stickers and the associated administrative cost? I highly doubt it

Passing the savings on to users defeats the purpose of the savings in the first place….

The reminder in the mail is one of the issues. I live at 2/25 x street and 100 m as the crow flies is 2/25 y street. I regularly get their mail and deliver it to their address promptly. I therefore have to assume they get my mail from time to time but aren’t particularly prompt in swinging by to put it in my box.
The hearts and minds at ACT rego might be in the right place but will Auspost pay your fine should you not receive the reminder?

How on earth do you get by without paying your electricity, water, rates, internet connection, mobile phone or any other bill if reminder notices aren’t plastered on your front door? Does your health insurance constantly get cancelled or indeed your car’s insurance, because there isn’t a sticker reminding you every day you jump in? Your logic with this petition could apply to any number of bills for which failure to pay could end up costing big dollars, so why let it end with rego?
If you want to start a petition for anything, how about a direct debit scheme to help people put away $20 a week so that when the rego is due they have already paid for it? That’s better value than a view-blocking sticker.

Have you ever tried to undo a direct debit?

Do not add to the cost of registration by asking them to print thousands of stickers for people who simply forget when registration is due. The reminder notice in the mail should be enough to tell you to pay up.
If that isn’t sufficient, get some adhesive backed paper and write the renewal date on there, slap it next to the “next service due” sticker,between the National Parks season pass and the disabled parking permit, adjacent the E-tag and try to avoid covering it with the fluffy dice and Virgin Mary bobble head.

then I doubt that you even bothered reading my reasoning for the petition

neanderthalsis 4:30 pm 14 Mar 15

Why? Was life somehow better when we had rego stickers? Did you like getting something tangible for you many hundreds of dollars? I can’t see any benefit to bringing them back apart from having a visual reminder of when your rego is due without having to open the glove box.
