Every car is assigned a number plate. This is a unique number that helps to identify the car and the car owner. When a new car is purchased it goes through a process called “car registration procedure” from the department of motor vehicles. In case of an accident or a crime involving the car, the make and model of the car and the owner of the car can be identified from its number plates. All countries have a law by which car registration is made compulsory. In Britain too, car registration is mandatory. There is a system by which car numbers are assigned to a car. This is not done haphazardly.
When a car is being registered, the officer in charge has to assign a unique number based on the year of manufacture and the area where the car is being registered. Thus a car number plate reflects the area or district from which it has been registered and the year of manufacture. Nobody is allowed to temper with this number. A number plate is always affixed on the front of the car and at the rear end of the car. This allows traffic police officers to quickly check a speeding car’s number plate from either end. There are strict regulations regarding number plates.
You must follow these rules. Although fancy artwork is not allowed on number plates, some people do have graffiti and fancy pictures on their car number plates. This is against regulations and is punishable by law. Some car owners even have the numbers written in a fancy way. This is not permitted either. In fact, a fancy number plate of any kind is not permitted by law. The positioning of the number plate is also determined by regulation. You cannot alter this position and put up your car number plate anywhere you like.
