The Sun newspaper have reported that number plate cloning is a growing problem – particularly in London. Hackney reported 1,160 examples in the past 12 months while Haringey had 842 cases.
The use of cloned plates was supposed to have been stopped by legislation that prevented the manufacture of plates without evidence of vehicles ownership such as the registration document, but that legislation seems to be often ignored.
People clone plates to avoid parking and speeding fines, and to avoid paying for car insurance. But it creates enormous problems for those whose vehicles have been cloned to get the fines issued overturned.
