The rider was fined and charged with the offence because he failed to ensure that the numbering on his motorbike license plate conform to the regulations set out by the authorities.

A check on one motoring website shows that letters and digits are to be 50mm high, 30mm wide and 5mm broad.

In the case for this rider, his motorbike’s license plate was only 50mm high and 25mm wide, 5mm short of the legal requirement.
