Three sim­i­lar-model Mercedes-Benz cars us­ing the ex­act same Shang­hai B li­cense plates were spot­ted by traf­fic po­lice around Hu­tai Road, Jin­qiu Road and Zhong­shan Road North, Wun­ing Road. Ac­cord­ing to the po­lice, all three of the lux­ury ve­hi­cles be­longed to one res­i­dent, sur­named Yang. But two were only is­sued C plates, which are not al­lowed down­town.
