Victorian number plate idea by ZeroDavid

VicRoads makes special vanity plates for AFL team supporters, horse clubs, etc.
I am discussing With VicRoads making vanity plates that have the words :
VICTORIA -- OVERPOPULATED --
rather than the words --
VICTORIA -- THE PLACE TO BE
If they say no, then it would be fairly simple matter to make a small vinyl bumper sticker to cover THE PLACE TO BE with a sticker saying OVERPOPULATED. Check any car, you see this is the flat lower section of the number plate.
Legality revolves around obscuring the number plate, but as the alphanumerics would not be obscured, it can be argued the modified plate is completely legal.
Traffic jams are a crude measure of overpopulation. Most drivers are then at some level of annoyance. Iit seems a good idea to hit them (the driver behind) when they are hurting.
Totally agree with Zero

The idea about the number plates and the idea that most people are pretty angry already in traffic.
Victoria Overpopulated. And why wait for a real numberplate? What about a window or mudguard sticker in the shape/size of a numberplate? "Victoria Overpopulated"!
