Victoria -The Education State ? WTF??

Topic: 
Image: 

Was driving home from work today and saw a Victorian Number plate in front of me with that text at the bottom.
Seriously, is that the best they can come up with? I'll bet all you Mexicans are super proud of that effort!
What about "Victoria The surf coast state"? or something reasonably imaginative that would encourage interstate tourism. Perhaps Vic Roads had a competition for who could come up with the most boring slogan and its an in house joke?

Yea, saw one up here at Mooloolaba few weeks ago, offered to educate him on Qld U Turn rules, which stipulate, for those planning a trip up here to beautiful Qld,
"When doing a U turn, you must give way to all traffic even if that traffic has a give way or stop sign".
Which means in essence, give way to all traffic.
But of course, you must understand, some public servant in Vic Transport got a packet of Tim Tams for coming up with that slogan.
Tim Tams are on special 2 packets for $5 in Coles this week.

I love "Victoria the place to be"
My wife laugh and says "wtf are the all doing in Qld"
As for the U Turn
It is "ILLEGAL" to do a U Turn, unless sign permits so, In QLD. Ask my wife, she was going into the police force, but failed the medical due to her cancer.

The "U Turn Permitted" signs in Qld you refer to are at traffic lights.
All other areas "Give way to all traffic even if that traffic has a give way or stop sign"

I moved to QLD from that terrible just south state and there to make a U Turn you have to come to a stop on the very left of the road, put right indicator on and when all clear perform your U turn,

In QLD you just stop in the middle of the road, with or without you optional indicator, and turn when ever you want. (At least that is how I see plenty of Queenslanders doing it.

Bad road habits everywhere, I liked the Channel 9 show the other morning, a fellow turning right at T intersection, fellow goes around the left of him to turn left, person turning right decides to turn left and takes the front of other car. They say guy on left in the wrong cannot go on left unless there is a lane. So next time you are driving down a single lane road and fellow in front is turning right you cannot go on left to pass him.

I agree, it sucks, of course you cannot expect anything better from a Peter Beatty Labour Govt., or was it Anna (I will now run Medibank and the Banking Assocciation) Bligh.
Much prefer Sunshine State, I raised a sweat sleeping on the beach today.
Air temp 27
Water temp 20
And most Victorians have gone home cause it got too hot for them.
Don't get me wrong, we love their money.

Don't get me started. Every change of government, first thing thing they do is come up with a dopey new slogan.
Mrs ambo got the shaft after over 10 years as literacy coordinator, new principal came in, gave the job to some dopey sheila (jobs for the girls?) who couldn't handle it after a year and left. That program basically gone, shut down. Yeah right, so much for the education state..

The dopey Principal that hired the dopey sheila who couldn't handle the job, only lasted 3 years. He left, and is probably at some other poor school, slashing and burning..

Peter Beattie invented the smart state slogan, and had to dump it. Same bloke privatised electricity to reduce prices; they have risen ever since. No so smart

Maybe they should do some kind of deal with China and India to have these plates on cars over there.
Education of foreign students has always been a huge money spinner for Australia so it might attract a few more students if they see it over there.
The NSW slogan a couple of years ago was: "NSW, The state of business." We were in Sydney one weekend and my daughter changed one sign to; "NSW, The state of business: CLOSED."
