How to have a convenient licence number plate…

When one gets a vehicle, it is normal to get a “temporary” licence number plate before getting the actual ,permanent one. But the temporary licence plate should clearly mention that the vehicle is “for registration”.

I spotted this near Indira Nagar:

convenient number plate 250907

IThere are two separate sets of numbers written on that plate, (8199 or 8799 vertically, and 146 horizontally) and one of the numbers on the horizontal axis seems to be smudged from 9 to 4…if this vehicle hit someone, what on earth would the bystander take down as the number of the licence? And it looks as if it is a board where the numbers can be easily erased and re-written, from the way the 9 has been changed to a 4…

Very convenient, you can change your licence number to suit the day, date, numerology, your mood, anything at all!

Oh how we love flouting the law….

    Good observation. But aren’t you in India?:-)
    Even if caught by men in Khakhi the rider would become poor by Rs. 50 or so and continues his ride.

    If the police REALLY took action, the people will up up in arms against them, not supporting them.
    Last Friday, Bangalore Mirror made a fuss when Jeevanbhimanagar Police caught a guy without a license riding a bike and talking on a cell phone. He assaulted them when they stopped him. However, the news report makes HIM seem like a victim, rather than atrouble maker.

    Yesterday, a truck driver is stopped for violating a one way on H Siddhiah Road. Finally a case is field anainst the traffic policeman who took action against him.

    Corruption is REALLY not such a problem. If every rule violator had to pay Rs 100 (even as a bribe, not a fine), people will think twice before violating rules.

    I have thought over what you said, George Matthew, and I think I would agree with you…maybe, even Rs.500…
