The Compliance Targeting Team unveiled – Unregistered drivers beware!

johnboy 3 November 2008 47

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.

You need to look at total cost, esp incl. CTP. The govt is also freeing up choice, we have been hurting due to a monopoly.

The thing is I saw this operation on Sunday on Ginninderra Drive – what happened was they spent the whole afternoon there picking out all the unregistered vehicles with their high powered camera pulling them over and making them walk.
About after an hour they had left all the cars but one had dissapeared!

The naughty drivers must have walked as far as the bushes, and hidden until the cops moved on.

Special G said :

Add to that the AFP don’t care how much revenue the govt makes – it has no relevance on their position at all.

And pigs will fly. Wake up chum, if you think that there is no link (in the minds of beauracrats) between the cost of maintaining the AFP and the money they make through serving infringement notices, you are both ignorant and delusional. We are well on the way to having a self-funded police force here in the ACT.

oppressed-taxpayer – you need to flesh out you’re argument there a little. The cost of maintaining it’s own Police force in the ACT would probably cost far more than the contract with the AFP.

The ACT govt may rely to a certain degree on revenue from fines although from the individual coppers perspective they don’t care about raising cash for the govt. It’s not like they are on a commission or anything.

This site is a very good indicator of prices charged for CTP in NSW. For giggles, indicate a postcode of 2620, for QBN/Hume(ACT).

Expect higher prices for younger drivers/older cars. Generally a $100 or so saving PA.

probably is a word used by those who don’t know.
