Strange number plate on Range Rover leaves Melbourne drivers stunned: ‘Never seen this before’
Australians have been stunned by illegal fake “private” number plates on a vehicle belonging to a driver associated with the sovereign citizen movement.
A photo of the Range Rover sporting the fake plates was taken at a traffic light in Melbourne and posted to Reddit on Tuesday.
‘What is this license plate? Have you never seen this before? they wrote.
The license plate has no number, only the word “PRIVATE” framed by the words UCC 2022-298-8263-8 and “VESSEL IN DRY DOCK UCC 1-308”.
Reddit users were quick to share their theories in the comments.
‘Ah damn. I think he’s one of those sovereign citizens,” one wrote.

“Sovereign citizen. Conspiracy theorists who think whole parts of the law are invalid,” added another.
A third joked: “Cops are baiting so they can spew their script about being free people on earth.” »
“Careful, attention-seeking asshole,” another added.
A fourth said: “Idiot who is about to get a massive fine, then refuses to pay it, then watches it get progressively worse.” »
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 do not believe they should have to pay taxes, viewing them as illegitimate.
As part of this emerging ideology, rulers believed that maritime law should be used to govern, even on land.
They also believe that capital letters are used on birth certificates to make individuals a legal entity and not a sovereign person.
