So you loose 3 points for having mud on your number plate on the way home from a day trip...

You loose 3 points for having your elbow resting on your window.

Holey crap, don't accidentally turn in the wrong driveway at the KFC carpark, 3 points.

What about your HF antenna that's on your bullbar as you drive accross from WA on your holiday. It's leagal where I come from, but nope, 3 points.

Wow, they are really out to save lives with these changes...

3 points for the HF antenna, but they're not as concerned with parking on a railway crossing (1 point). But hey, I figure those who do that and have the worst occur are doing the gene pool a favour anyway.

I just bought an 80 series on the weeknd up here in sunny qld. It has a HF antenna on the bullbar.
Is that illegal in QLD????
I guess I won't be driving down to tweed heads any time soon then.

Yep those Hf aerial’s are a lot more dangerous than they look

The people who dream up these law’s need to be taken out into a field and shot, Mud on a number plate 3 point’s get real what a bunch of pin head’s.

dirty # plate has always been a bust...

they even go to dirty lights down here in Melb, if they are dirty and not clearly visible - Gawn!

Always clean them before hitting tar on the way home from bush.

Its forward protrusions , ie rod holders etc, and protrusions above the bullbar like Top mounted lights.

As long as its behind the BB , and not in the middle of it , shouldn't be a problem.

I posted on the HF on bullbar issue a week or so ago. It is not illegal in NSW....providing it is mounted correctly.

The post is ID nbr 24103 if you would like to read.

what happened to the infringements that were going to be given lesser fines/points? All the warnings I've heard, mainly on radio, have said that some offences would have smaller fines and points deductions.

Parking on or near a pedestrian or children's crossing - 1 demerit point.

Nice to see they're serious about protecting the more vulnerable in the community. Where's Harold bloody Scruby now. I would have thought he'd go ballistic about that little gem.

Why do they consistently get it so wrong.

"Driving with part of body outside of vehicle driver or passenger)"

How about driving with part of body inside passenger? Surely a much more dangerous practice.

"Driving on a path, nature strip or traffic island" Bastard - one of the advantages of a 4WD is that you can drive "off road".

At least they have included failing to keep left on a multilane road, but do you reckon the porkers will enforce that one?

"Driving with an obscured or illegible number plate light vehicle)" now that along with radar detectors are truly dangerous practices - yeah, they might not be able to get revenue off you.

In New Zealand the fine for having an unsecured (tied on) dog on the back of a truck is less then the fine for not having an ankle biter secured in a seatbelt or approved harness. !

It's all damn revenue. Once apon a time we got warnings and a kick in the @rse but now all they want is to feed out our wallets. Seems a shame that a warning doesn't suffice any more.
