Officially booked


A TOYOTA van picked up outside Dromana Magistrates’ Court last week was sporting home-made plates: CPOAU92 (above). The 53-year-old male driver, of Cheltenham, told police he was a self-appointed “Commonwealth Public Official of Australia” who didn’t need to have a licence or pay registration fees.

Unsurprisingly, police found no basis for his claims, and had his white van impounded.

The man will be summonsed to appear at court at a later date for unlicensed driving, unregistered, false plates and refusing to undergo an oral fluid test for drugs.
