number plates...

a gorgeous aston martin, finished in black, passed me today from the opposite direction.
the number plate had been doctored to read "minge ", it raised a smile !

didnt get to see if it was a female driver [sorry, but when there is an aston around, women come a close second ;¬) ].

what interesting number plates have been spotted ?

I can remember seeing a cinema advertise a CL INT EASTWOOD film
They doctored the words, with no space between L and I.

I don't understand the laws governing number plates any more, I thought they had to still be readable as an identification plate? many of the ones 'round here use an almost unreadable font plus the letters/numbers all merge into forming the intended word.

I found the idea of them humorous as a teenager, now they just look daft most of the time.

The law governs size, font and spaces and also the size and shape of the plate itself. I’d guess APNR can decipher sone discrepancies.

h.o.w is right about the specifics of the plate.

the police can prosecute but they dont appear to bother, even though technically doctored plates could be used to avoid fines by speeding/red light cameras.

a doctored plate will fail the mot so they put the original plates on for the test.
