Hard, critical thinking isn’t taught anymore in the universities and other educational institutions in the west, how can we expect the Khmer to have such skills?

Personalised number plates raise $6 million for state

Sales of personalised number plates have raised $6 million dollars, according to the minister of Public Works and Transport, Sun Chanthol.

Chanthol said two thousand personalised number plates have been sold since sales began in January.

The comments came from the minister during the launch of the new Public Service Centre at Chip Mong Noro Mall on Wednesday, in Phnom Penh.

Spokesman of the ministry, Heang Sotheayuth, told Khmer Times yesterday that proceeds from the sales will be credited to the state budget.

“The decision to begin selling personalised number plates was made to facilitate the needs of society. It is also convenient for those who want a personal plate that proves their identity,” he said.

“This kind of plate allows officers to check the identity of owners, which makes it easier to spread information to relevant authorities, especially if a traffic accident occurs,” he added.

What a fantastic idea, I'm surprised nobody has thought of it before. :?
Silence, exile, and cunning.
