    But think of the tax return with all those "business expenses"

        Driver's attitude would've had everything to do with that outcome, before it was discovered trailer was unregistered.

            Nope. Any exchange of goods, services or cash is a business w.r.t. operating a towtruck. That said, if you told the officer you were towing a mates car for a 6 pack, they'd probably pretend they didn't hear you unless you were being a total cunt to them or your setup was dodgy as fuck and they wanted to throw the book at you.

            If you do want to be a cunt and not give them any ammo:
            If the cops ask you why there's an unregistered vehicle on your trailer -> "It's my project car", because transporting an unregistered vehicle to sell for scrap is running a business.
            If the cops ask you why there's a vehicle registered to someone else on your trailer -> "I'm helping out a mate by transporting his broken down car for free" ... better hope that if they contact said registered owner, the same story is given by them.

              Truth be known, the cops don't give a shit 99% of the time. It's only if you attract their attention that they get interested. If the cops see the same car towing always towing different cars, then they're going to look into it.
              And if people are happy to save a little bit of money and be towed by someone without the correct insurance using questionable equipment then so be it, I'll happily tow the sorry mess away after it all goes wrong while charging TTA crash rates.

                Don't put your window down and tell the cops you're a free traveler and they have no right to detain you, then drive off. It's a loop hole not many know about.

                  Also inform them that they are a public servant and that THEY work for YOU. It takes the fight out of them.

                    Bulks instances of NSW Police doing this lately... XMAS party budget would have been huge, now I suppose they need an Aussie day party budget!

                    Would not matter one bit how you treated them, they'd still go to town on you for a ~$4k fine... they've got bonuses to make under the table, right?

                      SDRO don't send cops petty cash. But they are definitely running state services more like commercial enterprise which is shit.

                        If you're towing a poorly-secured shitbox with an even shittier box, then you're probably their main target.

                        Not old mate who looks like he's got his shit together, and knows what he's doing.

                          Didn't hang around to see how this ended.
                          No. Driving an esky along the footpath will be the end humanity. This must be stopped.
