Personalised Reg Plate Security
For those residents wishing to secure their vehicle registration plates, and so preventing them from being stolen, the Kirwans Bridge Neighbourhood Watch is holding a Safe Plate Day at the next Nagambie market.
The group will be setting up in Blayney Lane on Saturday.
For just a gold coin donation, get your number plates secured with the one-way safety screws.
● Another crime prevention initiative being held this weekend will be at the Tallarook market on Sunday.
Police will be there with engraving equipment to put identifying numbers on residents pushbikes, scooters and any other similar equipment.
Bring your property down, with your drivers licence and that number will be engraved on the item.
This helps to prevent theft and also greatly assists police to find owners if property does get stolen or lost.
More Britons are personalizing their car number plates than ever before, according to the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA). In the past year, the Treasury made a record total of £102 million — £15 million more than 2014-2015 from an estimated 335,000 registration plates purchased by drivers in the U.K.
The DVLA started selling personalised number plates in 1990, with just 77,745 purchased between 1995-96 — four times less than today. At present, the DVLA boasts 47 million plates on offer to drivers across the country, which can be bought online or at auctions.
The DVLA says almost 335,000 registrations were sold in the last year – more than four times the figure in the mid-Nineties.
A spokesman for the AA welcomed the news, saying: “It puts a smile on people’s faces and raises money for the exchequer – what’s there to complain about?
