You know how you just CBF cleaning your cars for months and the more grime/dirt that builds up just puts you off cleaning it even more?
Yeah, well we have a pretty good reason that it’s about time to get off your lazy arse and get a-scrubbin (or just keep being lazy and drive through the car wash).
You could cop a heavy fine for having a car so dirty that your license plates aren’t displayed cleanly and clearly.
And it’s no small fine, it’ll set you back $161 and you’ll be hit in the demerit points too, losing three of them.
While you’re scrubbing the car it also pays to check that the plates are properly displayed (not obscured in anyway), as this will hit you in the pocket with the same fine.
LAWS BY STATE FOR HAVING A DIRTY NUMBER PLATE
QLD: Fine up to $104
NSW: $448 fine; three demerits
SA: Fine up to $534
VIC: Fine up to $161
WA: Fine up to $100
NT: Fine up to $70
TAS: Fine up to $163
We have it much easier than Sydney-siders who face a hefty fine of $448 and three demerit points. So, your options are to move state or clean your car.
Melbourne’s waiting for you!
