In a crackdown on 'fancy' number plates, the Mumbai Traffic Police (MTP) have issued e-challans and initiated action against almost 5,000 vehicles which had installed fancy number plates.
Police said that it was of utmost importance to stop such vehicles from plying the roads as it is very difficult for the officers or CCTV cameras to read these numbers and note them for further action. Moreover, it was also noticed that a number of criminals used vehicles with fancy number plates for illegal activities.
