The Australian Christian Lobby welcomes moves to rid New South Wales roads of sexist, obscene and offensive slogans, and urges the government to prioritise the protection of our children from this unnecessary and extremely offensive advertising.
Following steps taken by the Queensland Government early this month to deregister offending vehicles, as often seen on Wicked Camper vans, Greens MP Mehreen Faruqi announced on Tuesday that she would be introducing a similar bill in the NSW parliament.
NSW State Director, Mark Makowiecki, said parents will welcome the move.
“Queensland has pioneered this approach and we would encourage the government to make the removal of obscene advertising a priority. The community desire is clear, advertising should not include sexist or degrading images or slogans,” Mr Makowiecki said.
"Removing obscene advertising from NSW roads would be a welcome development. People have a right to go about their business without being confronted with obscene language whilst they're stuck in traffic.
“As Queensland have shown, with bi-partisan support this can be a significant step to removing inappropriate and degrading advertising” Mr Makowiecki said.
