IN REPLY to Simon Harringon’s ‘Plate Hate’ letter that ran in last issue. Does he honestly expect the NSW State Government to fix the unreadable custom plates situation? These things are just another way it squeezes money from motorists.
The Government should stop ripping off motorists with extremely high taxes and charges. The sad reality is families in the suburbs and rural areas suffer the most as driving is so often essential outside Sydney’s CBD given the poor infrastructure.
Everything from driving to work, to going to the shops, to getting the kids to school is made much more expensive and that strains people’s budgets who struggle enough with other financeial pressures given the lack of spending in other areas.
Coloured plates are here to stay as long as those in Macquarie Street still wear rosetinted spectacles.
Krish Patel, via email We’ve got nothing against personalised plates, if only for the comedic value of some of the crazier ones, but if they can’t be read at a glance then it’s probably something that needs to be addressed.
