A chip will be attached to the new number plate
7 April 2011
From 1 July, all vehicles must be absolutely new number plates. Currently many people have already made provision. The new plate should be white to yellow to the front and rear. But that's not all; it must be to British Standard!
"It Should Be Made of retro reflective material. Which have regard to ITS construction, colour and Other qualities Compline With The Requirements of the British Standard for retro reflective number plates were published January 15, 1998 Under number BS AU 145d."
That means it must be retro reflective that is to say that the plate must absorb light. In those affected, it is emphasized that electronic gadget will be introduced and that this gadget would be a chip.
The National Transport Authority (NTA) will release a statement to inform people about these new laws in the coming days.
The law will be enforced on 1 July and vehicle owners will then be required to meet the standards.
The numbers and letters on the new plate will be inscribed in white on a black background.
The new plates will be standardized with white front and yellow at the rear. This change occurs because, at night, the police are struggling to decipher the plates, with visibility reduced.
This change will allow speed cameras to better capture the numbers of vehicles.
Motorists will now think twice before pressing the throttle.
