Solution for fake licence plates
I CAME ACROSS Commissioner of Police, Darwin Dottin’s comment on November I3, 2009, that fake licence plates were a big problem for the police.
My solution to stop these fake licence plates is for the Government to change all licence plates to metal plates to prevent them being easily copied or made.
In the United States licence plates are not made at home, they are made in jail by prisoners.
The government would let all vehicle owners know that these licence plates are the property of Government and that in order to sell your vehicle, the licence plates must be returned to the motor vehicles department.
For a transfer or plates not in use, for example, a write-off, the plates would also be returned to the department of motor vehicles.
Barbados is a small island and I do not see the need for each parish to have its own plate. There could be two licence plates: private and commercial.
