What chance has a witness got of identifying the Toyota in a split second after a fail to stop accident?

As good if not better chance than with it legally displayed? I'd be more concerned with the dirt obscuring the reg but what you going to do about that? Mandate twice weekly car washing?! :lol:

You can actually get fined the same as mis-spacing if your number plate is unreadable for ANY reason including dirt.

Yes I know. Dirt can be far worse than a mis space but no one is up in arms about that calling people who don't wash their cars chavs etc!

You don't see many vehicles with number plates so dirty you cannot read'em, however mis-spaced numbers are much more common. Dirty number plates aren't worse their as bad.

Disagree. At least you can still read a mis spaced plate.

The Law is Black & White, a number plate is either readable or not thus legal or illegal.

To mis-space a number is deemed an offence under the current law so no matter how much you justify it they are not acceptable in the eyes of the law.

Surely editing my posts is also illegal! Joe couldn't stand to have his English corrected.

This is a forum, it is not for you to highlight peoples spelling mistakes or grammar that is rude and not what forums are about. For someone who mis-spells number plates it is ironic that you pull people up on their spelling or grammar.

Accurate written (and oral) communication in the English language is not something that should ever be compromised.
The appearance of a UK vehicle registration mark is an entirely different matter.

Besides, a 'mis-space' on a plate is akin to a contraction in English. i.e. H15 MB X (in place of H15 MBX) is similar to can't (in lieu of cannot); neither is a change in meaning or purpose. Sticking a bolt in the H to make the plate look like 1115 MBX would be the same as using 'there the same' instead of 'they are the same' ...

Cheers, have a jolly day! :P

p.s. I resisted the urge to correct your recent posts.

Anyway, someone has to be the 'grammar police' whilst BB is away! :lol:
