"Victorian motorists will pay an extra $17 to register their cars from July 1 this year.
The cost of motor vehicle registration will then increase every year linked to inflation.
This is the first rise in registration fees since 1994 and Victorian Transport Minister Peter Batchelor says they will still be the lowest in Australia.
Mr Batchelor says the government will raise $60 million a year over the next four years as a result of the fee increase."
How much do people pay in other states? This increase will mean I'll be paying around $502 in late July(bastards). I heard on the radio before that they reckon it's still amongst the lowest rates in Australia? Apparently the money is going to be spent on roads in country Vic to address disproportionate death rates amongst other things.
