WARNING: SURGE IN ODOMETER TAMPERING

CONSUMERS are being warned about odometer tampering after a four-fold increase in the number of fines issued for the offence in NSW, with hundreds of thousands of kilometres being knocked off vehicle odometers and sold to unsuspecting buyers.
 
Minister for Fair Trading Eleni Petinos said as used motor vehicle sales have risen amid the COVID-19 pandemic, so too have incidents of odometer fraud where perpetrators wind back the mileage or replace the odometer with one showing fewer kilometres.
 
“NSW Fair Trading Investigators dished out $112,200 in fines and 76 penalty notices in 2021 and 2022 – a huge jump from 22 total penalties in 2020,” Ms Petinos said.
 
In one case a seller shaved off more than 400,000km off a 2012 Subaru XV, reducing the odometer from 470,000km down to 52,709km. The vehicle was then sold for $32,000, an $11,000 increase on the original sale price.

WEST'S MOST POPULAR PLACES FOR HOMELESS

SLEEPING rough is the popular term for the homeless in NSW and when it comes to Western Sydney, Parramatta is by far the most popular place to settle down for a night without shelter. A head count by the Department of communities and Justice showed 39 people were sleeping rough in Parramatta in February, compared to 32 last year, but down from 94 in 2020. Cumberland had three, down from seven and Blacktown had just four, down from eight. Penrith LGA also had four, down from 10.
