mad RTA is having a blitz in ACT

hehehe, today i replaced my 3 bald and 1 almost bald tyres which i have been driving around with for a couple of days. less then 5 minutes after the new ones are put on, RTA inspects me!! Im so lucky they didnt get there an hour earlier, i always cruise around the area they are inspecting.
Anyways the RTA is having a big crackdown on cars with stuffed lights or bald tyres so be careful, just make sure you dont have any noticeable problems, they spent less then 10 seconds looking at my car.

Re: RTA is having a blitz in ACT

10 seconds? That's the difference betwee a fine or no fine? Well, wish everything were that simple!

No car ATM but I am looking at one...
I don't want to say which one otherwise someone else might buy it!

Bugger! I've got 1 blown spotty and the foggies aren't wired yet.

Doh - I'd better go and get that parking light fixed...

Were they closing the road and checking all cars, or were they picking the odd car out?

Re: RTA is having a blitz in ACT

They did that down Hindmarsh the other week, blocked it all off and inspecting 90% of the cars, didnt bother with me though (perhaps cause of the NSW plates)
