Unusual new licence plate is spotted on a car in Queensland – sparking a fiery response from hundreds of Aussies

  • Illegal number plate spotted in Queensland
  • Features words:  ‘Private Property Non-commercial’
  • Believed to be a ‘sovereign citizen’ number plate

An illegal number plate has been spotted on a car in Queensland, sparking a wild reaction from hundreds of Aussies.

The number plate was spotted in north Queensland by a passing driver, who posted an image of it on Reddit.

The plate features the words: ‘Private Property Non-commercial, Living Woman, Terra Australia Incognito, Removal of this incurs a $50,000 fine.’

The Reddit user said: ‘The plate number is in 10mm high font where the red dots are. Surely this is illegal? Is this some type of sovereign citizen thing?’

They said that the plates were on front and back of the car, adding: ‘Font was too small to read from two car lengths. Plates were professionally made, this lady didn’t knock them up.’ 

Many Aussies believed the number plate belonged to a ‘sovereign citizen’.

Sovereign citizens believe that they – not judges, juries, law enforcement or elected officials – should decide which laws to obey and which to ignore. 

Most sovereign citizens also don’t believe they should have to pay taxes, considering them to be illegitimate.

As part of the strange ideology, Sovereigns believe maritime law should be used to govern – even on land. 

They also believe capital letters are used on birth certificates to make individuals a corporate entity, not a sovereign person. 

Aussies were quick to voice their disapproval of the sovereign citizen movement on Reddit.

‘Any money they’re calling themselves sovereign citizens but still have an Australian passport, state driver’s license and use their Medicare card,’ said one. 

Another added that sovereign citizens were ‘people who believe they have some intrinsic rights to do what they want and not pay fees, levies, taxes etc, but still enjoy the benefits they bring.’ 

A third wrote: ‘It’s these wackos that think that the laws of Australia don’t apply to them. But ignore that when they use our government provided services.’ 

A fourth said: ‘Sovereign citizen clown is going to find out the hard way when they get arrested and their car impounded.

Tense moment ‘sovereign citizen’ is dragged out of her car by police after refusing to give her name or hand over her licence when she is pulled over – as she accuses officers of violence 

Footage has captured the moment a ‘sovereign citizen’ driver clashed with police before she was dragged out of her car.

The woman was pulled over on the Gold Coast, Queensland, recently and recorded her tense confrontation with police.

Video showed the woman trying to speak over the officer, refusing to provide her name and calling him aggressive.

The woman begins to commentate in the video that she has just been pulled over by police before she is interrupted by one of the officers.

He asks her to provide him with her full name but she refuses and asks him for his personal details.

The officer obliges the request before asking the woman a second time for her name. 

‘I do not consent,’ the woman said. 

The officer warns the woman she will be arrested if she continues to refuse to provide her details.

‘Under what law?’ the woman said.

The officer tells the woman to listen to him before she butts in.

‘You listen to me please,’ she said. 

The woman tries to cut off the police officer while he is speaking to her.

‘You’re being very aggressive,’ she said. ‘What crime have I committed?’

‘You are unlicensed at the moment,’ the officer responded. ‘And you’re obstructing me.’

The officer and his colleague explain the woman is under arrest at which point the woman tries to put up her window only for the officer to block it with his arm.

‘Don’t put that up on me, I will bust your window,’ he warned.

The woman accuses them of being violent as the officers stand around her car.

‘I can’t believe the police are going to put me under arrest for a breathalyser,’ she said. 

‘Violence, violence by the police! I have done nothing wrong. Let’s discuss this nicely. I will open the door if you calm down.’

The incident comes less than a week after a police officer ripped out the window of a sovereign citizen's car when she refused to leave the vehicle in a separate incident

The officer reaches his arm into the car and unlocks the door.

The woman passes the phone to her passenger to continue recording the incident as the officer grabs her right arm and begins to pull her out of the vehicle. 

Footage of the altercation was uploaded to Twitter where some social media users slammed the driver’s actions.

‘I love these Sovcit arrest videos. Best thing since the Jerry Springer show,’ one wrote.

A second added: ‘Why do these people video stuff like this? It makes them looking bad towards the police as she is refusing to answer there questions.’

The video comes less than a week after a police officer ripped out the window of a sovereign citizen’s car when she refused to leave the vehicle in a separate incident.

The incident took place in Coffs Harbour, NSW, on Wednesday and started when an officer asked Helen Delaney, 52, to wind her window down.

She refused to wind it all the way down and also refused to give her name or driver’s licence before telling the officer he had ‘no jurisdiction’.

He told the so-called sovereign citizen that she was being stopped because she was driving without registration.

Later checks found that the registration of the car Delaney was driving had expired in July last year.

She was arrested and charged with several offences before being bailed to appear at Coffs Harbour Local Court on Thursday.

Earlier this month, another driver claimed she was ‘not part of the state’ when she clashed with an officer for not displaying registered number plates.

Chloe Fisher was stopped by police while she was driving near Gundagai, in rural NSW.

She used her phone to film her conversation with the policewoman who asked her for forms of identification and whether the vehicle was registered. 

Chloe stepped out of the car and explained she hadn’t displayed any number plates because she was in the process of ‘going sovereign’.
