Li­cen­ce pla­tes

George Herald - Auto Dealer - - Nuus -

Vehi­cles are fre­quent­ly seen on South A­fri­ca’s ro­ads with the re­gis­tra­ti­on pla­te bro­ken, crac­ked, da­ma­ged or obscu­red. A re­gis­tra­ti­on pla­te in this con­di­ti­on is un­la­w­ful and could re­sult in a traf­fic fi­ne.

So if you notice any da­ma­ge, ha­ve the pla­te re­pla­ced as soon as pos­si­ble. A com­mon mis­ta­ke dri­vers ma­ke is to mount a tow bar in such a way that the num­ber pla­te is obscu­red. This is al­so il­le­gal, and an ad­di­ti­o­nal pla­te may ha­ve to be moun­ted to en­s­u­re the vehi­cle’s re­gis­tra­ti­on num­ber can be e­a­si­ly re­ad.

Of cour­se, if you’ve been on a trip on dus­ty or mud­dy ro­ads, check that your num­ber pla­tes ha­ven’t been obscu­red by ro­ad de­bris. Gi­ve them a quick wipe-do­wn if it’s the ca­se.
