Lamborghini-driving Aussie criminal barrister in legal row over ‘offensive’ number plate

‘LGOPNR’ = leg opener

Peter Lavac’s yellow Lamborghini

A top Aussie barrister has reportedly won a legal battle with local transport authorities over the “offensive” number plate on his bright yellow supercar.

High profile Sydney lawyer Peter Lavac was ordered to remove the personalised “LGOPNR” number plate from his Lamborghini by Transport for NSW. But the former Hong Kong crown prosecutor hit back, successfully arguing at a hearing this month that most people would never realise it meant “leg opener”.

“How can anyone be offended by something if they don’t know what the f*** it means?” the criminal law specialist asked The Sunday Telegraph. He claimed the yellow and gold plates were “tongue-in-cheek” and that he was just “taking the p***’ out of himself”.

The latest comments from across Legal Cheek

Transport bigwigs reportedly backed down, which the barrister believed was because they relied on outdated legislation.

Tara McCarthy, Transport for NSW safety, environment and regulation deputy secretary, said: “If a member of the public finds a plate offensive they can report it to Transport for NSW which will investigate and the plate may then be recalled.”

So caring for others is a “boomer” trait? Why don’t you sod off and play on Tik Tok you selfish tool?

PS I am not a Boomer.

Nice to see the “thumbs” go from 4 up 0 down to 4 up and 24 down. Someone is ageist, selfish, ignorant and has the time to clear their cache to change the votes. Keep it classy snowflake….

Sep 22 2020 12:56pm: typical boomer behaviour. Rationalise opposition from others in a self-serving manner. The most likely reason why the votes are as they are, is because a vast number of people think that you are talking nonsense. And they are right.

Lambos and personalised plates are both markers of classless new money.

Lol bitter much? You’ve clearly never had the chance to gently caress a gas pedal, feeling the throaty call of 600 Italian thoroughbred horses coming from under a perfectly sculpted verde mantis hood.

I don’t have the weak character needed for such things.

Whatever bro. I guess I’ll just have to suffer with my weak character, Chelsea townhouse, model girlfriend and regular trips to my yacht on the Côte d’Azur. Pray for me.
