Motorcyclist dodges toll by using hand to block license plate

Ben Hooper

July 12 (UPI) -- A motorcyclist in Australia was filmed avoiding a highway toll using a simple method -- reaching back and covering his license plate with his hand.

A video recorded by another traveler and posted to the Dash Cam Owners Australia group on Facebook shows the motorcyclist approaching the toll kiosk in the express lanes reserved for users of the e-TAG electronic toll collection system.


The motorcyclist reaches back with his right hand and covers his license plate to keep it from being photographed by the toll kiosk's cameras.

The potentially dangerous stunt split commenters, with some criticizing the man for putting himself and others in danger, while others praised him for circumventing an unpopular toll system.
