ACT Policing has announced the formation of a “Compliance Targeting Team (CTT), comprising of ACT Policing officers and ACT Government representatives will target unregistered, uninsured and defective vehicles and unlicensed drivers on Canberra’s main arterial roads through the highly-successful RAPID plate-recognition system.”
Unsurprisingly it turns out that people driving unregistered vehicles are also much more likely to warrant further attention than drivers who can keep their rego up to date.
- “Unlicensed drivers in unregistered or uninsured vehicles are disproportionately represented in national fatal motor vehicle statistics,” Supt Colbran said.
“Injuries suffered as a result of a collision involving an uninsured vehicle may not be covered by third party insurance leading to lengthy judicial processes to recoup medical expenses and damage.
“Drivers who ignore the basics of registering their car, are more likely to ignore other road rules, placing other drivers at risk.
“The earlier these drivers are detected, the safer it is for everyone”,
I think the vast majority of us will be pleased that picking up the unregistered is going to become a systemic process.
