EU bars logo on cars

Sunday Sport - - NEWS -

DRIV­ING a car with an EU logo printed on the num­ber­plate will be IL­LE­GAL af­ter Brexit and could in­val­i­date your in­sur­ance, mo­tor­ing chiefs have warned.

Many new cars have the 12- star EU logo printed on the left hand side of the plate, but as Brus­sels owns copy­right to the im­age, cars dis­play­ing them af­ter March 2019 will breach trade­mark rules.

Giles Pat­ter­son, head of the pro- EU Mo­tor Safety Re­search Foun­da­tion, said: “Mo­torists would not have voted for Brexit know­ing it would make their ve­hi­cle an il­le­gal pub­li­ca­tion.”
