Moomin said:I think you have a fair point, some do spend too much time doing not much but if you had an accident (say Hit and Run) wouldn't you want the car to have an easily readable number plate for other people to read? Personally I'd have told him to get it fixed and produce the car at the nick.
A Readable plate yes totally agree!
Get it sorted and prove it yes totally agree!
It's like someone at the show not long bought a car from a dealer. Which had tints on windows including the front both driver and passenger. (so he believed was ok) Asked the coppers if they would test as he didn't want to get done for. They tested they were way to dark and they advised him to remove them. When he could've been given 3 points as they were below 30%
Now that's the better attitude to have. they were friendly about it. The guy removed them no problem.
I was there so wasn't second hand either
