VicRoads driver licence deliberate false information?
Can you really trust what they put in writing to you, as 'lawful'?
Let's take a closer look at what a legal (but unlawful) licensing business called VicRoads writes to its customers.
This is an excerpt of what they write to their clients:
Carry your driver licence and/or learner permit while driving
You should carry your driver licence and/or learner permit while driving and produce it upon request to a police officer or a VicRoads Transport Safety Services Officer, see scan below:
If you are above 26 years of age you are under no legal obligation to produce your 'driver licence' to a police officer.
A 'VicRoads' Transport Safety Officer has no lawful power to instruct you to produce your 'driver licence'.
Road Safety Act 1986 Section 19 states:
(8) A person under the age of 26 years who holds a driver licence must have the licence in his or her possession at all times while driving or in charge of a motor vehicle.
Penalty applying to this subsection: 5 penalty units.
Putting aside the validity of the Road Safety Act 1986.
Another bit of false / business enticing information produced by "VICTORIA State Government"?
