A Victorian man is attacking the state government over his right to personalized license plates that say ‘DANOUT’.
Peter Dunlevie has adorned his 2003 Commodore with the politically pointed badges since receiving them from VicRoads in September ahead of the state election.

“Well, I want (Victorian Premier Daniel) Andrews gone,” he told 7NEWS.
“I’m just sick of him.”
Last week, however, VicRoads made a U-turn. The authorities wrote to the Gippsland father and asked him to return the plates.
Because she had labeled them “negative,” “offensive,” and “inappropriate.”
“A review of our records has determined that the combination ‘DANOUT’ has specific negative references and may be considered offensive by the wider community,” VicRoads said in the letter.
Dunlevie declined the position.
“What’s offensive about them? said Dunlevie.
“This is just an old guy having some fun.”
VicRoads has the discretion to cancel personalized plates and Dunlevie says he feels the authority is “trying to gag me”.
The Department of Transportation is reviewing the decision to strip him of his license plates.
