    Beware of creating so called amusing personal plates

    Well, I have to share this one. In a moment of creativity, I decided to get personal plates with something funny.
    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.

    Lost, was it?
    He who takes offense when offense was not intended is a fool, yet he who takes offense when offense is intended is an even greater fool for he has succumbed to the will of his adversary.

    You need to sell this story - could make some money on this with some so called current affairs programs, and then auction off the plates on eBay.....

    All sorts and sizes of personal plates in WA. Some are so stupidly infantile I suspect the owner shouldn't even be driving. Some are so small they're unreadable. Why some would want to recreate and pay the Gov. extra for duplicating what the maker has already put on the back of the vehicle I don't know.
    But there ya go, each to his own I suppose.

    PS. I've got a rellie with a Bentley with personal plates but at least they're original numbers and letters which had not been issued before.

    I have a beaut hand signed letter by the head of the Dept of Transport in WA politely knocking back by request for "FCKCANCER" plates for my D3 as they "have the potential to cause offense".

    Apparently I have the option to apply for something different or a refund. Since "ANTICHRIST" won't fit I think I'll go the refund.

    This is available in Victoria but I figured you would get stoned in public for having given it is in poor taste.

    Some 10 years ago a US state issued plates ***-Goy & ***-Jew. Apparently no one in the DMV either noticed or gave a ffff. Which did cause a bit of a furore. People wanting to swap or hand in plates according to their beliefs and prejudices. Quite a few wanted to keep them. The Gov. solved this by cancelling all of them and issuing new innocuous plates.
