vp bt1 5.0ltr full GTS kit
got yellow stickered yesterday - reason verrrry petty

Got pulled over no reason licence check or whatever......

breathalysed - zero reading - wasnt drinking
no fine asnt speeding...

was told to drive to nearest police station so they could go over my car.
this is where the fun started.

measured height no probs
exhaust noise no problem
windscreen wipers and washers - no probs
tyre tread - no probs
checked battery locked down - all good
basicly every test known to man

they stickered my car for left hand indicator lense missing - just the poofter clear bit of plastic on the ouside - still has the enclosed bit with the globe inside it and it still indicates orange colour

is this a bit wrong or what - BTW i was nice as to the cop until he put the sticker on it - then started the tirade against him....

all i can say is what a wanker - im gunna take my car over the pits as is - if t passes that cops gunna get a bill from me for time off work and cost of pits..

for those that know more about cars than me... wheres the safety issue

sounds very petty what they've done. I think that sort of thing just shows lack of integrity and a whole heap of arogance. I'm not a hater but what they have done by your account there just sounds like a waste of their time and a waste of your time and money now. Its still flashing orange cause of the amber bulb and they know that it will inconvenience and cost you to have your car over the pits just for that so why do it????

that's really messed up. i dunno about perth, but in vic i would absolutely contest the crap out of that. i don't know the exact laws, but i'm guessing to get canaried your car would have to be 'dangerous', too loud, or putting out too much emissions. what you've described is definitely not dangerous, and doesn't require a re-roadyworthy. even if you didn't have an indicator, don't think you could get canaried... perth must be different though.

to get a Defect it only has to be 1 thing it use to be 3, but a roadworthy aswell has to be a major thing like tires, for a indicated that is really wrong.

thread closed, because theres enough of these bs threads each week.

stop sooking, go buy a new indicator and get it fixed.

if the lens is missing, its classed as a danger, as there is a chance any protruding edges could do more damage to someone should you hit them.


unsure why you bothered to have a go at him after he put the sticker on. keep beig nice, cop it on the chin, and chances are, karma will come back to bite him in the ass. but i guess some people just need to arc up when their unroadworthy car gets defected.
