Personalised Number Plates

By Ruth Smith

A driver’s car is one of his most valued possessions. Whether you drive new or used cars, you tend to love the car that you drive as though it were a member of your own family, and in some cases you love your car more than your family!!

Drivers love their cars and tend to spend huge amounts of money on them whenever they can. That could be in the form of valeting, servicing, accessorising, performance enhancing or sometimes, when the worst happens, repair work.

One of the most popular forms of expenses is personalised number plates. Personalised number plates used to be very expensive and were the exclusive domain of rock stars and royalty, but now the prices have come down, personalised number plates can be bought by anyone, and sported by any types of cars. You no longer see personalised number plates on just swish cars; you can now see personalised number plates on Fords and Nissans. A lot of young drivers, who have just acquired their first car, enjoy “bigging- it-up”. In order to do this, they change many aspects of it, and the number plate is one of them.

Psychological studies suggest that personalised number plates, rear window stickers and furry dice adorning cars indicate an aggressive driver who may be inclined to road rage. The more accessories drivers have on their cars, as well as the level of attachment to the vehicle are significant signs of aggressive driving.

Several UK based car clubs have disputed the claims by this study conducted by the Colorado State University, where mothers adorning “baby on board” signs say they simply do so to warn other drivers to practice caution and avoid silly accidents. This may indicate that the type of personalisation may signify different personality types.
