Number Plates and their Importance

My nephew is planning to buy a new car but is slumped after finding out about the requirements needed to obtain one. Everyone knows that buying a car is not an easy process. Aside from the actual purchasing of the automobile, one also needs to worry about other requirements like the registration of a number plate. Why are number plates so important, you ask?

The conception of number plates actually came out of necessity, which started when cars started roaming the streets. It was first used as a way to identify the car sort of like a unique ID. Eventually, as the number of cars grew, governments found out that aside from identification, number plates can also be used as a means to control and regulate traffic. Other governments followed suit and imposed their own rules on vehicle regulation.

As time went on, other uses for number plates became apparent like vehicle classification based on type and location. It has even been proven useful in public safety and law enforcement as number plates were used to track ownership of cars. Every car that we see today now has its own number plate, which serves as identification as well as a license that the car is registered.

Car >Number Plates are indeed important and required by law. Do not fret if you need to go through hoops just to get your number plate. Keep in mind that they are equally as important as the car you will be driving.

JEN 116 Plate

So what’s with that number for? Oh well, that would be my car plate number in the future if I will have my own car. If that isn’t possible then I guess if I’ll have my way I’d ask my mom to have our car number plates personalised just like my sister Joy’s plate number. I think it’s cool to have one since these days; almost everything can be customized so I think why not our plate numbers as well? Jen, obviously is my name while 116 are nos. 11 for my birth month while 16 is my birth date.

I know having a personalised plate number would mean additional expense on our part but I guess it doesn’t matter since our plates will be unique and can be identified much easier. If putting my name of the plate number is kinda cheesy, I know I can think of another a plate sign that will make it personalized. What about JAL 116.. hmm sounds good too, eh

Anyway, personalising number plates has long been popular not just here in our country but in many countries as well. Having one means giving your vehicle a more personal touch like putting your name or any significant word or phrase. It can also start up a conversation when a friend or someone sees it.
