Some of you may know me, l was the lady who pulled on all the transport blockades for the interstate transport industry, blockade 2000 at the Albury/Wodonga Border and the Nation Wide Shutdown in 2008.
As a representative of the transport industry l made it my business to know the laws they were throwing at us, in this post l will cover TOLL CHARGES and the FRAUD behind it!
Every time you fuel your vehicle you pay fuel excise of 38.4 cents per litre on every litre sold.
Fuel Excise is a TAX and is charged by the Federal Government to pay for building of roads, bridges and tunnels and the maintenance of such. Fuel Excise replaced the ROAD TAX in 1979 when it was abolished after The Razorback Blockades.
Each time l fuel my truck which tows a single trailer I am charged fuel excise in the amount of $55,000.00 per year for just one truck.
Every transport user pays fuel excise even if you are fuelling "off road vehicles like a boat".
Every time you pay registration and license charges part of those charges also go towards the building of roads, bridges and tunnels.
ALL ROADS, BRIDGES AND TUNNELS are therefore paid for by the Australian People and Australian People therefore own those roads, bridges and tunnel systems!
Some state governments when they got low on funds sold off infrastructure including toll roads, bridges and tunnels to mock investors that are in fact subsidiary companies of the state governments and the state government gave those companies the right to charge the people who already own that infrastructure toll charges!
However, they did not build other roads or bridges off those motorway's that would allow road user's to bypass those toll roads.
This in itself is unlawful as how does a government sell off infrastructure that is built in the middle of publicly owned infrastructure and not provide an alternative route for public transport and still have the sale of that infrastructure be a lawful contract?
In addition, those toll roads, bridges and tunnels no longer belong to the Australian Public or does it?
The new owners (Subsidiary companies of that state government) who originally owned that infrastructure are now charging us (the original owners; TOLLS for the use of our own infrastructure)
The reason the state government's set this up this way is because our constitution states that "once a TAX is placed on anything by the Federal Government, no other TAX can be charged by ANY other government department" State or otherwise, even if that tax is removed by the Federal Government!
Therefore, the only way the state governments could make more money out the present road system was by charging tolls under a fake subsidiary company, and the only way they could do that was to sell off the infrastructure to themselves under another name and then that company can charge us tolls or as l like to call it Another TAX!
I know this to be true as the government couldn't risk a private company buying infrastructure in the middle of Public Infrastructure and then
1. Not maintaining it
2. Altering it in some way that it would cause problems with the flow of traffic
3. Going bankrupt and closing it down for good (in effect making that entire motorway or infrastructure completely useless) and it would cripple that entire Road System for public use!
Can you imagine the dilemma?
In which case the government would then have to buy back that infrastructure in whatever condition it is in and at whatever obscene over inflated price that a private company would like to extort/sell it for!
For example: The Burnley Tunnel in Melbourne and The Clem 7 Tunnel in Brisbane; if these alleged private companies were to go broke and close down those tunnels; this would cause traffic jams that would take months to deal with; by forcing all that traffic onto already heavily congested road corridors and hence, which is why the alleged sale of this infrastructure is unlawful as the state governments have not provided exits on this infrastructure as a safety measure to this problem occurring and in not giving the public a choice of using those bridges, roadways, tunnels or not!
To add insult to injury, if you don't pay the toll charges, the government subsidiary companies then employ our own Police Force as debt collectors, in that they issue you with an infringement notice to pay the toll charges. If you don't pay the charges the traffic infringement courts then issue you with a NOTICE OF INTENTION TO ISSUE AN INFRINGEMENT WARRANT so your original $2.70 or in the case of a Semi $11.90 then has charges added to it such as
- Infringement penalty $122
- Penalty Reminder Notice Costs $22.60
- Lodgement Fee $48.90
- Enforcement Order Costs $26.30
1. The name of the alleged private company
2. And only makes reference to the alleged debtor as "THE RELEVANT CORPORATION"!
3. It is so lucrative a business that the State Governments have set up a Magistrates Court as an INFRINGEMENTS COURT just to deal with TOLL EVASION and Infringement Notices!
As a private business owner operator l cannot employ the State Police or State Magistrates Court to use as my personal debt collectors, in fact a judge would laugh in my face at taking someone to court who owed me $2.70.
This is also a fair indication that this whole setup by State Governments is a Farce and the biggest Fraud Scam that this country has ever seen; as they no longer try to hide these facts and The Australian Taxation Office will inform you that the Fuel Excise you pay is for the building and maintenance of all road systems throughout Australia.
This is not an issue that can be dealt with by a single person on a single infringement notice and needs to become a class action dealt with by a Constitutional Lawyer someone with the same calibre as Gerrit Schorel - HLVKA
MAY JUSTICE ALWAYS PREVAIL!
The other thing you need to be aware of is that there are
3 TAXES ON FUEL!
1. G.S.T (A TAX)
2. Fuel Excise (Another TAX)
3. World Parity Excise (Another TAX)
So on FUEL we pay A TAX on a TAX on a TAX!
All set up Unconstitutionally (TAX wise), (Property Boundary wise) etcetera; with the soul intention of to commit FRAUD against the Australian People by our very own trusting Government over the decades!
Until The People of this great country stand together on Constitutional Grounds to take the State Governments FRAUD REQUETEERING COMPANIES to a COMMONWEALTH HIGH COURT on this issue; then nothing will be done to stop it, and we The People will suffer in silence and just go on whinging about it!
I trust this information is enlightening and opens fellow Australian's eyes to just one UNCONSTITUTIONAL FARCE where our governments have robbed us of our rights!
This is only one reason why we must stick with our Annoted Commonwealth Constitution written by Quick & Garren and not allow our Government to make us a REPUBLIC, as to do so would throw away all our RIGHTS and allow the government to write our Republic Laws without consent from the Australian People!
United We Can and Will Make a Difference!
