Thousands of Aussies are petitioning for the state government to offer refunds or rebates on car registration and insurance amid the COVID-19 restrictions.
The petition – which has more than 3,500 signatures and is being led by One Big Switch – is calling on state governments to refund some or all of car registration fees during the coronavirus crisis.
“People are telling us they need every single dollar they can get at the moment,” One Big Switch’s Joel Gibson told 7NEWS.
“Aussies need every dollar they can get right now. With your People Power, we’ll push for Car Rego refunds around the country,” the petition reads.
“And we’ll also demand rebates on any other service that governments are not delivering right now, from compulsory insurance to rates and land tax.”
