A photo showing the back view of a rider as well as the motorbike license plate has been uploaded onto social media.
A closer inspection of the pictures uploaded shows that the motorbike’s license plate has bended inwards into half resulting in only half the top part of the license plate bearing the characters ‘FBM’ able to be seen.
The rest of the characters could not be seen as it has been blocked.
The motorist who shared the images online claimed that this incident happened along Bartley road at around 7am presumably today (19 Nov) given that the post was only seen on social media 30 minutes before the time of writing.
The motorist also kindly informed the rider that having a motorbike license plate like that is against the law.
Having heard this from the motorist, the rider rode off immediately without bothering about the advice given to her.
According to One Motoring, here are the regulations for motorbikes in the case of this particular biker in this post.
The vehicle licence plate must be displayed on the front and back of your vehicle, with the vehicle number clearly shown.
As for the rear license plate, here are the allowed dimensions:
1. Letters and digits are 50 mm high, 30 mm wide and 5 mm broad
2. The space between adjoining letters or between adjoining numbers is 10 mm
3. The space between a letter and a digit next to each other is 20 mm
4. The space from the nearest part of each letter and digit to the top, bottom and side of the vehicle license plate is 10 mm
