Rare fake sovereign citizen license plate on Toyota Hilux fails spectacularly
- Sovereign citizen stuns drivers with car
- Toyota Hilux had fake license plates
A driver associated with the sovereign citizen movement has stunned motorists after using an illegal fake license plate before the vehicle was impounded.
A passerby took a photo of the Toyota Hilux in Perth and mentioned several strange features before it was impounded for having fake number plates.
‘I found my first kitchen today! It was a pleasure to have it impounded for false plates,” they wrote.
A so-called ‘Commonwealth Custodian’ has left motorists stunned after using a fake number plate and strange design on the back of his car.
On the fake number plate, ‘private’ is written in white letters on the black background with the word bordered by the phrase ‘Commonwealth of Australia’.
There also appears to be a misspelling on the license plates with ‘non-commercial’ misspelled as ‘non-commercial’.
The rear of the vehicle is adorned with a coat of arms and directs people to the website of the Commonwealth Custodian, a far-right group that appears to share similar views to the sovereign citizens movement.
The group refuses to recognize the Australian government, shares false information about Covid-19 and falsely claims that political parties are ‘franchised’ from the United Nations.
A member state website: ‘Dear Australian Government, please know that we know who you are and what you are doing.
You are nothing more than a private political corporation. You have no authority over us, the people of the Commonwealth.
‘PS: We would appreciate it if you would leave the premises and return our country to us RIGHT NOW!’
Social media users criticized the appearance of the vehicle and criticized the owner of the car.
“I’m not willing to pay taxes, but I’m willing to drive on taxpayer-funded roads,” one quipped.
Another added: ‘I live in the US and have seen more crazy alt-right stuff in Perth than in the state I live in! It’s amazing.
The Toyota Hilux drew a lot of attention while parked on the side of the road along Ellendale Drive in Heathridge, Perth.
