    That is similar to one of my close schoolfriends. With a surname starting with W, his parents saw nothing wrong with calling him James Alfred. Then he had a younger sister, Jennifer Elizabeth.........

    The implications of the names (or rather initials) did not become apparent until the kids started school!

    So here they are, called 'No Plates'. How we laughed, and many commented that it was original and funny.

    Then the present nightmare began, who would have thought. It seems that some individuals like to park in places and don't want to pay. To achieve this, they have come up with the idea to simply remove their number plates to avoid getting a parking fine. As I have discovered it's really becoming a popular practice.

    Now, If you know what's coming, the plates are not so funny. Good old parking inspector/ranger/cops, who slink around looking for expired parking tickets and get an instant hard on when they find one, and rush to fill out the ticket to shove under the wiper before getting caught by soon to be very upset owner, who just ducked in to get a drink....honest! officer dribble.

    So what do they do when they see that the vehicle has no number plates? they write in the space titled; rego. number... 'no plates'.
    Here are a couple of examples.

    Yes, even a motorcycle....

    I know that common sense is long a thing of the past, but seriously, some idiot has just looked at the infringement and where it say's, 'no plates', so what if the vehicles are all different, and actually have no plates attached....WTF. An online check comes up with my plates...BINGO. we've found the culprit.

    To date, I have received over 20 parking fines in the last few months with threatening legal action if the fines are not paid. $65.00 x 20 so far...That's $1,300.00, Oh, and the W.A. threat of me losing my drivers license if fines are not paid.. BRING IT ON.......I'm sure a Magistrate in a court of law would see the stupidity of all this. Might even be a fun day.

    Several calls to Wil*** parking and numerous emails just fell on deaf ears, so in the hands of a lawyer for now and I'm almost looking forward to a day in court.

    So, in summery, beware, you may think it's funny at the time, but we have to allow for complete stupidity from those who extort money from us.

    Maybe the Media might find it amusing.....hmmm.
    That is a clever idea,particularly as there are now no rego stickers.

    In the 80s Vic police bought 75 new unmarked vehicles and Vicroads sent them rego plates for each car.
    The plates were in bags with the vehicle vin on the outside, so the mechanics got busy fitting all 75 set of plates.
    When the Chief Inspector came out to present the new cars a few guys started laughing.
    On closer inspection all the plates started with "COP***"
    Needless to say they were all removed and returned to vicroads.

    There was a camera van in Canberra where some enterprising chaps came up with a cunning plan. Whilst they engaged the occupant of the van in conversation their accomplice removed the plates from the van, pleasant conversation over, the plates were then attached to another vehicle which proceeded to drive past the van whilst exceeding the speed limit. The vans today have large magnetic signs saying that the occupants will not engage in conversations with people who approach them.

    Regarding the story about the police in Victoria being sent number plates staring with COP, I remember hearing a story that back in the 1950's or '60's when in Queensland number plates were three letters followed by three numbers. the police were supplied with some which they returned. Starting with PIG !

    It was the 70's.
    Some also had PEE but the PIG ones were more amusing.
    A friend of mine visiting from NSW commented "Only in Queensland" when she saw one.

    I had an FJ 55 that got he plate PIG ***, the car was nicknamed The Pig. Only recently I discovered that was actually a common colloquialism for that model.
    I had a friend whose aunt bought a brand new car about the same time, it was delivered with PIG ***. Being a cop, she insisted the plates be changed.
    If you don't like trucks, stop buying stuff.
