Each year in each state one thing you can rely on is that your vehicle Registration and CTP Insurance will rise. One of the main reasons for this is that you and I are paying for the tens of thousands of drivers who are driving unregistered vehicles and are often unlicensed.
One of the things our governments don't tell us is that there is a total of almost $2 billion in unpaid traffic fines, led by Victoria, $700m and Qld. 462m, and the states don't have any ideas on how to collect this money. Apparently the only people who pay their fines are law abiding registered drivers with occasional infringements.
If fines could be collected off serial offenders, vehicle taxes would not need to rise.
