A post was seen on Facebook recently about a rider receiving a fine of $100 after an inspection by a LTA officer on his motorbike license plate.
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.
This resulted in the rider receiving a fine of $100, and the offence on his offer of composition reads that he had committed an offence under section 131(1) of the road traffic act, chapter 276, and punishable under section 131(2) of the said act.
The authorities have said that they take a no nonsense approach against motorists who fail to conform with the rules and regulations put in place.
