Gr8 State: Queensland to rub in Origin win with rego plates
FORGET the elections, Queenslanders are being asked to vote on the winning tag line for a limited edition Maroons number plate celebrating the 8th State of Origin win.
"Maroons fans can have their say on the tag line for a limited run of number plates which will be available later this year," Premier Campbell Newman said.
"Vote now for QUEENSLANDER! - 8 IN A ROW, Domin8 - Go Queenslander or Queensland - The Gr8 State, with the winning plate soon available for purchase.
"I'm particularly keen for the plates to be carried by anyone who regularly travels south of the border."
What should go on Qld's number plates to celebrate the Origin win?
This poll ended on 31 July 2013.
QUEENSLANDER! - 8 IN A ROW
Domin8 - Go Queenslander
Queensland - The Gr8 State
I don't want to play any more I'm from NSW
This is not a scientific poll. The results reflect only the opinions of those who chose to participate.
There are apparently no plans for a streaker version of the plate with the bloke well covered on Facebook memes.
Transport and Main Roads Minister Scott Emerson said a limited print run would be available from next month.
"Motorists who purchased a new car or anyone wishing to replace their existing plates will have the option to choose the new Plates of Origin," Mr Emerson said.
"The cost will include the current transfer fee of $25.45, plus an additional $15 charge, and the plates will be available at all Transport and Main Roads Customer Service Centres.
"Voting will close on Friday, 2 August and the first plates will be available shortly after announcing the results.
"Queenslanders purchase 450,000 number plates each year, but I'm expecting these to be in high demand as Queenslanders rejoice in this record-breaking series win."
