|Vehicle theft and crime is becoming increasingly more common throughout the world. The GCC region is no different and is especially at risk because of the huge growth in traffic and the large number of high priced vehicles.
Police and traffic departments need every tool available to them to fight these issues and a country of e-plate vehicles means that stolen vehicles or individuals wanted for crimes can be easily identified as they move through cities and along highways.
With the introduction of laws which state that all cars must have e-plates, any vehicle which does not have one suddenly becomes suspect to police officers using handheld readers. Cars with no ping from their licence plates can be stopped and interogated. There might be a good reason, but chances are they will be trying to hide their identity on purpose. e-plate can help reduce crime and theft of vehicles.
