Motor vehicles—obscured number plates
(Question No 654)
Mr Pratt asked the Minister for Urban Services, upon notice, on 21 September 2005:
(1) How many instances of deliberately obscuring motor vehicle number plates to avoid speed or red light camera detection have been recorded in the ACT in (a) 2001-02, (b) 2002-03, (c) 2003-04, (d) 2004-05 and (e) 2005-06 to date;
(2) What are the penalties for such activity, deliberate or otherwise;
(3) How many fines/penalties have been issued or charges laid for such offences in each of the years listed in part (1) and what is the total cost of the fines issued for such offences.
Mr Hargreaves: The answer to the member's question is as follows:
(1) It is unknown how many instances there are of motorists deliberately obscuring motor vehicle number plates, specifically for the purpose of avoiding speed or red light camera detection devices. Urban Services do not know if any obscuring was deliberate, or if it occurred for a specific purpose.
(2) The infringement penalty for such activity, whether deliberate or accidental, is $78.00.
(3) The table below indicates the number of infringements that were issued based on vehicle number plates being obscured; it does not differentiate between deliberate or accidental acts:
