This petition is to reinstate Peter Smith's number plate 'CVD19'.  It is not offensive and should never have been cancelled in the first place.

Original story from 10 News below:

A Victorian cleaner will have his ‘CVD19’ number plates cancelled by VicRoads after a complaint was made “on the grounds it has been seen as insensitive”.
Peter Smith, an infectious diseases cleaner, has been driving around with the number plates for more than a year. However, last week Smith received a letter from VicRoads saying the plates have been cancelled, and he must hand them in by July 29.
The VicRoads letter states: “The combination of CVD19 has specific negative references and may be considered offensive by the broader community.”
A Department of Transport spokesperson told 10 News First that there had been a complaint and “given all that Victorians have been through the complaint was upheld and the plates were recalled on the grounds it has been seen as insensitive.”
“The terms and conditions that apply to custom plates are clearly stated on our website and include provisions to recall plates that are inappropriate or cause offence to the community," the spokesperson said.
