Is it just me, or are there a lot of vehicles on the road without the front number plate attached? It's usually on the dashboard visible through the windscreen. I saw 3 on my short commute home today.
Quite an effective way of avoiding speeding tickets & PPC infractions. If pulled I imagine the conversation will go along the lines of "It got knocked off in a car park officer. I'll reattach it when I get home." "OK sir, on your way then."
So what's the damage if plod decide to pursue it? FPN or something bigger?

Has anyone else noticed an increase in the fitment of "tinted" number plates too?

In the daytime they are readable, at dusk/night, they become unreadable at anything over a vehicle length in front.


Are they legal? Or put it another way, what is there about them that could be make them illegal?

The background has to be white at the front and yellow at the back. Tinted ones don’t comply.

I was going to say "what's this no front plate nonsense" and then I saw two cars over the weekend doing exactly that, the plate was on the dashboard instead!

Its the latest 'yoof' thing, there was one in our road doing it, one day a police car was stopped outside the house, next day it was fitted to the front bumper as per the other 99.9% of cars on the road.

I used to have a pair of polarized sunglasses and it was quite surprising how many cars had obviously modified numberplates with a polarized filter on them, if I tilted my head the numbers would disappear.
