    Default Police Question

    I was told yesterday by a usually reliable source that the North Yorkshire Police are fining and handing out a 3 point fine to motorcyclists with an illegal number plate. ie to small all on 1 line etc. Can anyone who works for the police or has a relative or friend in the force confirm this!!!

    Thanks

    Steve

    I would imagine that it won't just be N. Yorks that are doing it, although they may be having a blitz/clampdown on it - it'll be all forces that would be pulling people up for illegal plates, either down to the officer choosing to pull people or because the force is having a clampdown.

    number plate not as prescribed - used to be £30 fine
    owing to the high number of make off's fail to stop speeding offences that now rely on identification of the offender/vehicle - they HAVE been clamping down for some considerable time = take it you change your plate for your mot ??
    if its illegal they will procecute as gatso/apnr and mot camera based systems rely on number plates as bikes only have one to start with it needs to be legible and legal

    with regard to plates on an mot, as long as the person can read the plate from 20m, or whatever it is, it will pass( the guy who mot'ed my bike told me this ). but the police will do you for not having the correct size, colour ect, due to not fit for purpose, like having small indicators on your bike.

    Unless your Vectra was registered before Jan 1973, then silver and black plates are illegal.

    You still commited the offence, even unknowingly.

    As the saying goes 'ignorance is no defence'

    Getting done twice though for the same thing is just plain dumb or lazy.
