An industry body is issuing a stark warning to reckless motorists as police are catching close to a thousand motorists driving unregistered cars each week.

    ...no excuse being suggested here, but perhaps the phenomenon is due to the general cost of living; paying for fuel and food and rent may overweigh the perceived need to remain within the law on the road...
    Has anyone bothered to ask the police who are apprehending these careless law-breakers "why" !?

    Registration and CTP insurance should be charged as a levy on fuel and therefore every motor vehicle the moment it is used it is registered and insured. This would wipe out all the unregistered vehicles.

    Very inventive Tony, but this would just lead to an increase in drive-aways at the pump.
    Those who don't care about the rules - don't care about much else either.

    Well in Melb. alone 900 drivers were picked up in 1 week driving unregistered vehicles, so whats the real figure Aust wide?

    A lot of people forget or are simply breaking the law!
    I prefer the police are picking up unreg’d drivers than booking people for 3kms over the speed limit.
    Also the cost of living is an excuse, which at the present moment everyone seems to need an excuse for their own actions!
