Victorian election: Dramatic response to anti-Daniel Andrews number plate

A Victorian motorist has expressed his frustration after having anti-Daniel Andrews number plates cancelled by the state’s roads corporation.

The man, who is only identified as Peter, said VicRoads banned him from using plates that spell DANOUT on his Commodore station wagon.

“Freedom of speech obviously not allowed in Victoria,’ he told 3AW on Monday.

“They’ve offered me a refund but I don’t know, I’ll have to do something different. I’m very, very annoyed.”

Peter went on to mention he had brandished registration plates that read RUDDUD, in reference to former prime minister Kevin Rudd, since 2008.

“I don’t know how I’ve got away with all these years since 2008 with the plates RUDDUD,” he said.

“I’ve still got them. I’ll tell you, back in ’08, they were a big hit in Canberra.”

VicRoads said it reserved the right to cancel registration plates if they were deemed “offensive, is otherwise inappropriate for public display or was issued in error”.

Displaying number plates that haven’t been issued and approved by VicRoads on a vehicle is an offence under the Road Safety Regulations in Victoria.

Mr Andrews will attempt to retain his party’s power on Saturday when the Victorian election takes place.
