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.
“Once you’ve bagged that number plate – if it’s a good one it adds value to it. Some are iconic and will be sought after. Some of the best are simple but exquisite.”
The biggest went for £180,000 in May last year – for KR15 HNA – which was a new British record for the most expensive current style personalised registration plate.
Today, plates with just one number and two letters cost an estimated £60,000, 20 times more than the early 1990s, when drivers could expect to pay somewhere between £3,000 to £5,000.
A DVLA spokesman said: “Many people enjoy displaying a personalised registration number and the general sale and auctions remain extremely popular with the public.
“Since we began selling personalised registrations we have raised around £2.3 billion and all the money raised is passed to the Treasury.”
