Yellow sticker :(

The yellow/red sticker system here in WA is a handy source of police corruption. They pull someone over, usually a young driver, can't find anything really wrong. But they can always find something to put a yellow sticker on the car ("I saw smoke coming from the exhaust back there" was used on a friend's BMW). Bingo! A de-facto $100-odd fine. Too many times people I've known have done nothing to the car and its passed first time over the pits.
Oddly enough, its the police who resist the idea of annual vehicle checks here.
Hard to see why "no carpets" is a problem. Unless of course there's no floor under them.
