SA Police can now hit you with a hefty fine for having a 'for sale' sign on your vehicle. :eek:mg

This is revenue raising gone mad. :coocoo Even if your car is parked up your driveway, you can be hit with a fine. But they allow the sign whilst your car is moving. :dowhat

They're excuse for this bullshit form of revenue raising is for "safety" :dowhat It distracts other road users from concentrating on the roads. Well in that case, why don't we remove all badging on all cars, remove all signs on or near motorways, remove signs from any shopfronts etc etc etc.

Its too hard to single out the mobile phone users, so lets pick on something a bit more visible! Its all too hard to do the work to raise revenue, I guess.

Can they get any worse? :puke

:coocoo

I don't see any distractions on the side of the road because I'm always looking at my speedo to ensure im not going over the speed limit.

... but then you'll miss out on that car for sale on the side of the road.

You'll also miss out on a nice trip to the hospital. :jack

God bless the police looking out for our safety. :jack

Its just plain revenue raising! Especially when the cops are going out of their way to pin people just trying to sell their cars. :coocoo

Cops drove up our street today and booked a neighbour. Just left the expiation notice in his letter box. :coocoo

What about those cars with the flashing lights and "POLICE" stamped on the doors and bonnets. I find them to be the most distracting.
And those them there Ambulances too!

Where do they draw the line?

Well i got done last trying to sell my Navara out on my front lawn.:rant
The council drove past on the first day it was there and pinged me $220.
I had never heard about the fine so i went down the council offices and got into them.
after about 3 hours of beening stuffed around they finally decided to let me off.
Took a fair bit of convincing though bastards

There's a wanker in my neighbourhood who I'd love to dob in :devious

He's trying to sell a new vehicle each week. I guess he owns a car yard. Drives one of them home each week for sale. Annoying really.

:laugh
