Colac and district motorists can soon ensure their number plates never go missing.

Colac police are teaming up with RoadSafe Otway to host a safe plate event on August 31, when drivers can combat registration plate theft by installing anti-theft fixings on their cars, trucks and motorbikes at Colac’s Driver Reviver station on Murray Street.

Leading Senior Constable Terry Woodcroft and RoadSafe Otway’s Matt Daniels agreed the anti-theft screws made the plates near-impossible to steal.

“Once they go on, they stay on,” Mr Daniels said.
