A new way to collect money

Al Ghad today has a report on a plan to change the format of license plates in Jordan. The new format will divide the plate into two segments. The new format will consist of a two digit segment to the left and a five digit segment to the right, similar to the Dubai license plate format.

The charge of changing the plates will be around 20-25 JD. Of course, given a choice, I would keep my current plate. There is nothing wrong with it, and the police can easily identify me through it if they place the plate numbers and their owners on a simple data base program. If people can easily remember eight digit telephone numbers, they certainly can just as easily remember the current six digit number. On the contrary, I think that the new format would be more difficult to remember, given that it is segmented.

As far as I can tell, the government is looking to make a quick JD 20 million windfall. The plates should not cost more than one or two JD's, if there is a need to replace them at all.

i agree that it shouldn't cost a lot, but on the otherhand its time we change them, the desgin is old the font is ugly, its way too crowded with the Jordan in both arabic and english as well as the number. i think JD 5 sounds better for both front and back plates.

Interesting post,Khalaf. I do see your point concerning the pricing of the future plates and I do not think the majority of the Jordanian people can afford investing the sum of money you mentioned (20-25 JD) in their license plates.

I think it is time we consider the "real" needs of the "majority" of the population.

I think, this method will work:) and I show you the method of the self/website development, design of the website is very important, but http://www.proofreading-services.org shows your that your content is more important indeed and it's better to follow the rightness of what you write.
