Thumbs down Oh For Fxxxs Sake ! Whats next!!!!

The government idiots are considering a scheme where the more fuel your car guzzles, the sticker is a different colour
An XR8 would have a red sticker on the back window. Whereas a PRIUS would have a green sticker. Different shades of colour, depending on your cars fuel consumption and emission levels.
Cann't someone save us from these mindless bureaucrats????? This scheme is in place in UK and Queensland pollies are thinking of intrducing it to Queensland!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Oh For Fxxxs Sake ! Whats next!!!!

Who cares if it has a sticker on it or not?
What difference does it make. All it does is alert the people/cars around you that you car is a gas guzzler, which could make you and your car a target of protestors and hippies.

That all i see in it, unless of course the sticker all incurs higher fees etc

Stinks of "Administration charges and fees".
A local council in Sydney is apparently going to
be charging "residents" different fees on a sliding
scale for their parking permits based on the
the engines capacity.
Mongrel pollies!!!!!

Re: Oh For Fxxxs Sake ! Whats next!!!!

We're getting a 5¢ per litre price hike on petrol over here to help roading—which begs the question: how come we didn't need it in the 1970s and 1980s when we had three-quarters the population and the government managed to pay for it all then? Despite your crazy pollies they are looking saner than our bastards …
