I recently captured a photo of this vehicle driving by on the M1 in Johannesburg. [I was in the passenger seat leaning to right  – just in case you want to comment about taking photos while driving] The number plates were not visible. Is this transgressing the Rules of the Road?


The car itself is not regulated if it is dirty, but a person may be charged in terms of reg 35 if the numberplate and number on it is not visible.

    Stupid question… If you sat in the passenger seat then the vehicle was left-handed or not. Or you leaned over to the driver’s side…. Or am I seeing ghoste…
