An Australian driver has to pay $122NZD for a strange traffic rule in Sydney.

The fine, that was given by the New South Wales (NSW) Police Force, was due to the doors not being locked and windows being down.

Yes, you read correctly. He was fined for having his windows down and his car unlocked.

Under NSW road rules, it is an offense to leave a car unlocked or with the windows down if you are more than three metres away from the vehicle.

A window is considered insecure if it is open by more than two centimetres.

In north Queensland, the law is slightly different – windows can be down to five centimetres without being fined $42 NZD.

  1. That’s odd I wonder why the New south wales police force (NSW) would fine that? Also I think you could figure out an answer before you release an article like this! (not trying to be mean or rude)

  2. Woah! Thats pretty crazy for just a window… But still, always keep your doors locked and your windows high up.

  3. This is just stupid. That’s just a stupid rule to have, paying 122 dollars. That is just ridiculous, and the police are stupid to.

  4. i didn`t know that you could pay NZ dollars in Australia. weird weird weird weird weird weird weird
