no, you've just generally stuck to mis-spacing plates which is ultimately the same thing - making something appear in physical form which differs from its true, legal identity. Correct?


The severity of the misrepresentation differs somewhat. Also, 11 out of 15 of my plates do not require any deviation from their 'true, legal identity' for full effect.

"severity" is only subjective in your mind! Either they are mis-represented, or they're not. They're either legal like their V5C, or they're not. Simple as.

Yes, clearly whether it is a mis-space or bolt does not make a difference in terms of 'legality'. However, it does make a practical difference (ANPR can still recognise a mis-spaced registration but not one with bolts/screws etc. necessarily). So really we are talking about the spirit versus the letter (forgive the pun) of the law here ...

Agreed. But right now, as the law stands, is mis-spacing illegal or legal? Forget whether ANPR can read or not (which you know is the only thing we agree on). Is it legal or illegal?

Clearly it is illegal. However, just because two things are illegal it does not mean they are equivalent. Stealing a penny sweet from a shop is illegal just as an armed bank robbery is, but they are hardly the same thing.

not in terms of their illegality they are not.

I think you understand the point I am making. I was using a hyperbolic example. :roll:

you answered your own question before. It's illegal. It's chav. Full stop.

This is not really relevant to me. I have 5 perfectly spelt word plates that do no require any adjusting. I'm pretty happy with that ...
Also, I don't think you ought to equate illegal with 'chav' ...
I'm sure you drive over 30 mph on 30 roads sometimes - does this make you a chav BB?

I do equate them. I only speed on private roads, which is legal.

that is not the part I was disputing. I just doubt very much that you have never exceeded the speed limit on a public road.

LOL. had he come on and said, here's a plate J1 MEO for sale, offers c 2k, no problems. It's quite clear the first 3 digits are JIM irrespective of spacing.

As soon as he said 'if you add bolts' etc, he get the BB treatment like you did/do.

Yup, I was just waiting for it to happen too!
You were a bit harsh BB given that he's new to this game.

Your comments re. my plates are water off a duck's back; that's why I'm still kicking around! :mrgreen:

pls clarify - everybody on here 'has a go' at FF - even you and your moderator! -that's part of the deal. Even FF's alter-ego Rory gave him a hard time! You can't not have a go at FF!

If that's not allowed, this really will become a dead forum because the few people posting regularly will upsticks.

We all get you don't want tons of swearing but most of it is good banter and if chumps like David Smith can't handle even one line of criticism, they shouldn't flout their tat.

clearly! if only your business skills and common sense were even 1% of your tenacity and resilience, you'd possibly be successful!
