New Number Plate System To Be Introduced

Gauteng Roads and Transport MEC Bheki Nkosi said on Wednesday officials would introduce the intelligent number plate system by October this year.

It is part of a crime-fighting initiative which government hopes will assist in preventing car cloning and vehicle theft.

The system will include number plates made of aluminium which will have a passive electronic radio frequency identification tag.

Nkosi said the project would come into effect as soon at the necessary legislation was finalised.
