Here’s something I spotted in traffic last week.

boss-license-plate

While I’m wholly appreciative of the cool creativity it took to come up with this, I’m just curious – is license plate customization legal?

  1. It isn’t legal.Your number plate should be clearly visible and all numbers and letters should be according to the font prescribed by the Transport Authority.
    It should also not have any neon lights around it and not in fancy lettering either.

  2. Oh it’s cool. You are assigned a random number butt hen you can request for a fancy number. The have prices based on the uniqueness of the number like a 7777 cots more than a 7878.

    If more parties are interested in the same number then they are auctioned to the highest bidder.

    happens all the time!

  3. Hey no… though this looks like Boss, this is actually 8055 in a different font.. so in effect, this guy only bought this number… and he is not breaking any rules.. πŸ™‚

  4. @ Mudra, cool4u: I don’t think it is actually legal. Sometime ago, they enforced a strict law over the colour and font of license plates and this one is misleading (even if it is quite funky).

    @ Apoorva: Oye NRI, where do you think?

    @ Tanunj Lakhina: I thought so too.

    @ maxdavinci: That’s for the number itself. But this customization of font is probably twisting and even breaking the law. I still maintain that it is pretty distinctive, though.

    @ Ms.Taggart: I got that. But I don’t think the law allows you to do those fancy things with the font that makes it look like letters instead of numbers.

    @ Jinal Shah: Yes, I remember reading about it. But there was a law enforced in Mumbai sometime back when everyone had to standardize their license plates.

    @ Satish: πŸ™‚ Noted, thanks! But what’s RHS?

    @ Ajay: I don’t think so. Remember when they enforced seat belts? No one breaks that law now.

  5. long time since I visited your page. redirected from your wordpress page. a lot of complicated now, but well organised πŸ™‚

  6. a “fancy” number plate, invites challans, especially towards the end of the month.

    8055 is all very well, i think one has to stick to a particular font.

  7. @ Rahul Jadhav: Unless it is finable? πŸ˜‰

    @ Cynic: Vella ekdum…

    @ Ankur: Hey, thanks, I’ll check it out.

    @ satish: Reminds me of algebra class (prove that LHS=RHS)

    @ N: Thank you! I love this template myself.

    @ Extempore: Chances are we spotted it in the same place..or perhaps it was even the same car?

    @ Australopithecus: Ah I see. But from the comments I gather no one takes notice.

  8. Hey
    Been a long time.
    I first noticed the http://www.ideasmithy.com watermark and thought someone seems to b promoting ur blog! Lol
    Fancy number plates and slogan stickers are fun. I read one that said “Do you believe in love at first sight? Or should I drive by you again!”
    Interesting…
