I wonder how quickly they scramble for a burglary :?

Does make you question their priorities doesn't it?

Oh & the other 6 who have nicked me for small bike plates over the years

What size have your plates been on the bikes Julian? I’m running 8x6 inch on mine and was hoping that was a decent compromise that wouldn’t attract the attention of the law!

7 x 5 is what I use

The problem was more likely that it was a USA style plate that is Illegal in the UK and the fact their Cameras can't read the Font.

I used to have a slightly smaller font for it to fit into the standard bezel and never had any trouble with the police in the UK, France, Belgium, Germany, Poland and Holland for it.

My guess is just that the California plate stands out like a sore thumb and they know its not an EU/UK standard on top of a car that stands out.
