Yorkshire Number Plates
Vehicle leasing company Leasing Options commissioned the poll of our county's most iconic features, with Yorkshire puds topping the vote.
Henderson's Relish and the Yorkshire Wildlife Park were tied in second with the white rose and Sheffield-based comedy movie The Full Monty completing the rundown.
To celebrate what makes Britain great, Leasing Options created new number plate designs showcasing these features, ready for personalisation savvy drivers in the UK to take inspiration from.
Choosing between defining foods, influential pop culture figures, stunning historical buildings and alluring tourist attractions, Leasing Options asked Brits to identify the most iconic features of the 20 largest counties across England including South Yorkshire.
A new number plate has been designed for South Yorkshire with the most voted for quintessential feature, as well as the county flag colours and a famous local saying, all being beautifully illustrated on to a one of a kind license plate.
The top five greatest things in South Yorkshire include:
A Yorkshire pudding (35%)
Henderson’s Relish (16%)
Yorkshire Wildlife Park (16%)
The white rose (9%)
The Full Monty (7%)
Other key features of South Yorkshire which just missed out on the top five include Sheffield steel, The Crucible and the Arctic Monkeys.
Lagos State Government says it plans to introduce new number plate for commercial vehicles in the state.
Prince Olanrewaju Elegushi, the acting Commissioner for Transportation, disclosed while addressing journalists at the 2017 Ministerial briefing to mark Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode’s two years in office.
Elegushi said the new regime of commercial vehicle number plate would ensure clear identification of vehicles registered for commercial purposes.
“The state agencies like Motor Vehicle Administration Agency, Number Plate Production Agency and ministry of transportation will fine-tune the operations and issuance,” the commissioner said.
Elegushi noted that the development would bring a robust database for vehicles involved in commercial transportation to ensure safety of passengers.
The commissioner also said that the database would contain a body tag, to be fixed to the body of the vehicles for effective monitoring and redistributing of routes for businesses.
Elegushi said that about 5,000 commercial buses would be injected into the transport sector to ensure safety and spread of buses and to ease transportation challenges in the state.
“There will be introduction of uniforms for drivers and conductors to signpost a commencement of decency, discipline and quality service to the people of Lagos State.
“It is also to serve as a mode of identification and distinction between drivers and conductors,” he said.
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?
