Precisely. Apart from showing your allegiance to the fraternity, the only other reason I can see for having a green flash on your number plate is virtue signalling.No benefit at all, AFAIK. Might be seen as a way of getting rid of the EU symbology by the more looney Brexiteers, perhaps?
True, it's really a scheme which increases visibility of the number of EVs on the road, rather than a scheme which gives benefits to those drivers. The problem is the perception is the latter, which is utter nonsense because any benefits go on the car details, not the colour of the plates.It is very hard not to make a mockery of the whole green flash scheme from the start, for all sorts of reasons.
My Kia dealer told me that the green element was used by congestion charge cameras to identify EVs. At the time I did not really question this but objectively I think this is most probably wrong and I imagine ANPR is used and the green badge makes no difference.However, please tell us what benefits are bestowed on anyone displaying a green flash on their number plate, anywhere in the UK?
As with the green plates on that van. I’ll take my chances. I doubt anyone will care.I was told that it's no longer permitted to display the EU stars on the number plate of any UK car registered after we left. My wife's Zoe was recalled because of this. She bought it towards the end of March, and the dealer made an error and fitted EU marked plates. They called us and asked her to go back and have the plates changed a few weeks later.
Wow that takes the biscuit best one I've seen so far around durham is a bmw x1 if I see it again I'll take a pic.
