The most obvious way to get around a speeding ticket is by taking a ferry to the nearest harbour.
But if you don’t have the right licence, it might be worth taking the train instead.
It’s not all bad news for motorists in Tasmania.
There’s one important exception to the rule, of course, and that’s when you’re a pedestrian, cycling or even just taking a bus.
In those situations, you can take a boat to the port of Launceston and apply for a fishing licence.
The cost is $2.50 and you’ll need to pass a police inspection and some basic safety tests.
If you’re driving, the boat ticket is $3.30 and the licence is $10.
You can even take a bus to the dock and wait for your licence to be issued, which costs $10 as well.
