Confusion over old rego labels cleared up
CONTROVERSY erupted after the Fraser Coast Chronicle's recent article regarding the removal of expired registration stickers.
A press release sent out by myPolice Maryborough instructed that drivers could still be fined for failing to remove expired registration stickers on a vehicle.
The release said that although new stickers were no longer being sent out, it was still a fineable offence to leave old stickers on a vehicle.
However soon after a press release from the Bundaberg police contradicted the information given by the Maryborough branch, leaving drivers (and journalists) in a state of confusion.
Eager to clear up any uncertainty, the Chronicle went straight to the source, contacting Queensland Police Media for clarification.
A spokesman from Queensland Police Media confirmed that it was still an offence to have expired registration stickers on a vehicle.
So there you have it folks.
If your registration has been paid, but the old label is still stuck on your vehicle best to go peel it off straight away.
