Smart Number Plates A Possibility
The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has launched a more advanced web-based verification portal for driver’s license and number plates.
Corps Marshal Boboye Oyeyemi as saying this at a training workshop for personnel of security agencies at the Corps headquarter Abuja.
Oyeyemi said the new portal will enable the system provide information such as demographics, biometrics and offences committed by the holders of the Driver’s licence and user of the number plate.
He added that the new system also applies to the speed limiting device portal, driving school standardization portal and Road transport safety standardization portal.
The corps marshal further said the various driving schools across the country were now being certified and linked to the advanced portal to enable the corps monitor the number of students admitted, the curriculum and competence of the students they present for driver’s license.
He added that there were different classes of the license for drivers but competence remains the prerequisite for one to acquire any class of the license.
Oyeyemi said more security features have been built into the system to make it impossible for the licences to be forged or obtained by proxy without undergoing biometrics data and physical capturing.
How popular any name or initial it contains is: You are more likely to get good money for a registration plate that spells out a name like 5UE than you are with a more unusual name, simply because there is more demand for Sue (or Dave or Mel) than there would be for Hector, Primrose or Zebedee
How valuable the letters and numbers the plate contains are: in terms of numbers, lower numbers with fewer digits tend to be the most valuable when reselling personalised number plates, making BOB 1 more valuable than BOB 379. Sequential numbers (123, 456 etc.) and repeated numbers (444, 88) are more popular than random combinations, and special occasion numbers like 18 and 21 can also boost a number plate’s value a little. In terms of the letters in a number plate, the likelihood of a series of letters being a name or a person’s initials increases the value of the plate, too.
