Queensland passes laws for the removal of odious slogans
Workers that refuse to eradicate offensive words or pictures from the vehicles within 14 days will have deregistered vehicles.
Wicked campers have been observed after the Queensland parliament passed laws that punish operators who “say no” to eradicate “odious” slogans from vehicles.
Legislation was passed in parliament on Tuesday night that will mean operators who “say no” to take out “offensive” words or pictures within 14 days will have their vehicles deregistered.
The deputy premier, Jackie Trad, said the legislation was targeted at the van rental company Wicked Campers, whose vehicles often displayed “sexiest, demanding slogans”.
“We have essentially put Wicked Campers on notice that they are to remove these offensive slogans and, if they don’t, then their vehicles will be deregistered here in Queensland,” she added.
