Police reminder to check your rego
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.
