Bill to ban sexist Wicked Camper vans

As reported in The Mercury

Notorious rental van firm Wicked Campers would be banned from adorning its vehicles with “obscene, sexist and racist” messages under proposed reforms to vehicle registration laws.

The mooted legislation, to be introduced in State Parliament on Wednesday by Labor MP Katrine Hildyard, would give the Registrar of Motor Vehicles the power to cancel or refuse to renew vehicle registrations on cars, vans and trucks displaying sexist, racist and otherwise offensive slogans.

The Registrar would be permitted to exercise this power if the Advertising Standards Bureau upheld complaints about offensive slogans.

“The slogans on the Wicked Camper vans promote and traverse violence against women, sexism, racism and paedophilia … they are unacceptable,” Ms Hildyard said.

“I am determined to do whatever I can to ensure this offensive material does not appear on our roads, in caravan parks and camping grounds.”
