The ongoing crackdown on fancy number plates in twin cities seems to be yielding results with many vehicle owners coming forward to replace such number plates.

Motorists are making a beeline to the number plate manufacturers to fix them according to the rules of Motor Vehicle Act. Be it the owner of a swanky car or a rustic moped, owners are replacing altered number plates to avoid being penalised. In a recent incident, the traffic police collected heavy penalty from a Telugu film actor for having a fancy number plate on his vehicle. Corporators and some government officials are among the others who had to shell out the hefty fines. Times of change.
