Po­lice re­minder to check your rego

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

MUN­DUB­BERA po­lice have is­sued a re­minder to North Bur­nett res­i­dents to make sure their car reg­is­tra­tion is up to date.

Sergeant Daniel Clarke said on Jan­uary 11 the Dalby Road Polic­ing Com­mand was in the town with an au­to­matic num­ber plate recog­ni­tion car.

A Mun­dub­bera woman was charged with al­legedly driv­ing an un­reg­is­tered and unin­sured ve­hi­cle on Bou­verie St.

The 67-year-old was pulled over by the of­fi­cers at 2.30pm.

She was is­sued with a no­tice to ap­pear in Gayndah Mag­is­trates Court.

The Dalby Road Polic­ing Com­mand also de­tected and is­sued tick­ets for two un­reg­is­tered ve­hi­cles, two speed­ing of­fences, a seat belt of­fence and a de­fec­tive ve­hi­cle of­fence.

“I just want to re­mind the Mun­dub­bera com­mu­nity to recheck their ve­hi­cle reg­is­tra­tion to en­sure it’s up to date,” Sgt Clarke said.

“If you have any ques­tions about your reg­is­tra­tion con­tact your lo­cal Queens­land Govern­ment Agency of­fice.”

Sgt Clarke said apart from just not pay­ing car reg­is­tra­tion, there were a num­ber of rea­sons why a car could be un­reg­is­tered or unin­sured.

“On a few in­stances I have no­ticed when peo­ple pay on­line they put the in­cor­rect date as pay­ment date and the wrong year,” Sgt Clarke said.

“Some­thing might be due in 2017 but they put 2016 or 2018.

“That can lead to non-pay­ment or an in­cor­rect amount, which the sys­tem won’t be ac­cept.

“It’s all ex­tra money in the end.”

Sgt Clarke said writ­ing re­minders about when reg­is­tra­tion was due could be an­other way of avoid­ing miss­ing a pay­ment, and set­ting up a BPAY pre-pay­ment could also help.
