BigNews.Biz - May 06,2012 - 6th May 2012. Staffordshire, UK. The Channel Islands just off the coast of France have great way of life, with low taxes and a good standard of living due to all of the wealthy people that are resident on the islands. However, they have another good reason to be cheerful and that is the re-organising the islands the number plates system, this is always a great time for number plate enthusiasts!
The great thing here is that the number plates are really special because of the letter and numbering system that they use, such as two letters with 0 and 00 numbers options followed by the year, which is where the really special number plate JB007. This is the classic James Bond number plate and it will be coming up for auction at some time too, which will get a great deal of interest.
According to a statement made by the Guernsey Environment Department, it said; "Introducing the new plates involved an examination of the legal issues as well as consideration of the impact extending the registration marks would have on existing marks.
It continued by mentioning the number plates, "The vehicle registration database software has also had to be amended to bring 0 and 00 prefix numbers into the stock of numbers."
"Registration marks containing the digit one, two - and to a lesser extent three - have a special status in Guernsey and hence the decision has been taken not to issue marks 01, 001, 02, 002, 03 or 003." The statement concluded.
