    tinted numberplates?

    Does anybody know the legalities surrounding tinted numberplates? My mate got pulled and told to take them off, but in Northampton there are hundreds of cars with tinted numberplates that dont seem to get any trouble?

    They don't look good either. Almost is if they've been weathered really badly.

    Rob I know where your coming from, I also live in Northampton & see this all the time, though maybe they have given up on fining people tinted number plates.

    If number plates don't comply with requirements, they're illegal.

    If plod don't stop every car with illegal plates every time they go out, it's because they sometimes have other priorities!

    went to northampton to day and saw one on a car and just thought wtf looked a bit weird. Then bit later saw a black focus with one on as well. Had never seen one before i went there today.

    IMO they looked shite, even on a black car.

    Thanks for clearing that up, I personally think they look ok (on the rite car) but i dont want to get any unwanted attention from the police, would rather they spent time catching people with no tax or insurance.
