Michael Jackson Number Plate Tribute

July 21, 2009

Michael Jackson fan Thomas Slater with number plate MJ09 KOPDoting Michael Jackson fan Thomas Slater has pledged an eternal tribute to his favourite pop star – by purchasing a very special number plate in his name.

The personalised registration – MJ09 KOP – pays homage to the undisputed King of Pop, and was snapped up by the lifelong devotee immediately following Michael Jackson’s death, using his savings from a part-time job at his local Sainsbury’s.

Thomas said:

“I was absolutely distraught when I heard the news about Michael dying. I’ve been an avid fan since I was six, and like all true fans I just wanted to pay tribute to the King of Pop.”

Fines for Illegal Number Plates Increase

July 1, 2009
Posted in Uncategorized — Written by Nationla Numbers

Speed cameras can't always read modified number platesThe government yesterday doubled the fixed penalty notice for using illegal number plates on a vehicle to lb60, from lb30, stating that the use of illegal number plates can have a significant impact on criminal investigations and crime detection. It is hoped that enforcing an increase in the fine will stop drivers evading speed-camera fines.

Vehicle number plates must conform to specific rules for font, size and colour displayed on the number plate. If the plate deviates from the standard design for a number plate, it can be more difficult to detect the registration number using camera recognition.

The move comes along with a crackdown on those not wearing seatbelts in a vehicle, who also face on the spot fines of lb60.

Road Safety Minister Paul Clark said: “Every day someone dies because they do not think they always need to use a seat belt. This tragic waste could be avoided if everyone took the simple step of belting up every time they got in a car”.
