Families and businesses are paying more through higher taxes and increased living costs under a Labor Government stuck in neutral.
For four years in a row, Labor will have increased family car rego by 3.5% - more than twice the inflation rate. They are treating motorists like cash cows because they can’t sustainably manage the budget.
Labor have form in gouging Queenslanders; under the Bligh Labor Government we saw car rego soar by 30 per cent in their last four years at the same time public transport fares increased by over 50 per cent.
Annastacia Palaszczuk’s rego slug means a four-cylinder family car now costs over $700 to register – an increase of $50 in just two years!
The LNP has a strong track record of delivering cost of living relief for motorists. In 2012 we froze car registration on the family car for three years.
This meant that the cost of car rego at the start of 2015 was the same as at the start of 2012.
Families with a 4-cylinder car saved $45 under the LNP’s policy.
OUR REAL PLAN
A Tim Nicholls-led LNP Government will put an end to Labor’s unfair cost hikes and will once again freeze car registration for the family car.
This is part of our plan to keep the cost of living for Queensland families under control.
Queensland families with two 6-cylinder cars will save $200 under the LNP’s real plan.
Our rego freeze is fair on Queensland motorists in contrast to the double-inflation price hikes they are paying under the Palaszczuk Labor Government.
This is part of our plan to build a better Queensland by growing the economy, better managing our finances and looking after families.
