New license plates?

Post by newkidontheblock » Thu Jan 18, 2018 6:10 pm

Saw some new style license plates on the expensive fancy cars. A bit wider, a bit shorter than the ordinary car plates. Cars seem to be designed for these plates. What’s the deal? Cars coming from different location? Specially made for Cambodia?

I heard the new number plates now contain QR codes, haven't seen them yet, are these the ones you are talking about?

*edit. Found the article: http://www.khmertimeskh.com/news/39597/ ... ce-plates/

They're known as 'euro plates' in Australia, for euro cars, and social climber models made outside euro. Nothing new.

Just for fun scan the QR code - it gives you a link to a website where all the info about the vehicle and registered owner resides and lots of other info

Same as the ones on vehicle rego cards and drivers licenses - no privacy at all

In Cambodia? You really think the qr code or the website will actually work and be in English :facepalm:

Pretty certain the plate QR code doesn't show the owners address.

The registration card QR code does.

Yes. Sun Chantol was in charge of the ministry when it was implemented, iirc. He's one of the few ministers that actually gets things working.

My registration card QR goes here:

Edit, the two "English" tabs caused by chrome's auto translate feature. The left one should be Khmer.

When you scan license plate, it doesn't show name, address or any other similar personal information. Only details about the vehicle.
