@menonrajesh I've also spotted the car before however I'm a biker and thought it might be taken badly to flag the lady down to say hello!

I looked at it again and maybe you are right.

I see about one car just about every day with one or both number plates missing and thought this was another one - Hyderabad cops are far more tolerant towards missing number plates than cops in any other large city.

@valhallen,no worries..she knows that you stay around and will surely acknowledge - just that there might be a slight delay in the response time as its been not so long since she has started driving

Guys, Does it look that real! Its was just a 3 mins MS Paint job to hide the reg. number. I thought, instead of just a plain color, why not place the logos itself there... Was just trying to be creative
Owner of this car - Please for forgive me for this.

Will surely let her know!

Its been some 1.5 years since I have placed stickers on my car. But strange that none has spotted it yet! hmm..could be because of the strategic ( or lack if it?) placement of those stickers
nice to know! those transparent stickers are indeed a bit hard to spot. in the first glance, i missed it too!

Default Stickers on Reg Plates are Illegal

Aren't the stickers on Registration Plates illegal? I read a couple of plates suggesting this. But I feel it amounts to breaking the law.

A couple of years back, there was a trend in Palakkad, to fit those blue and red super bright LEDs on the registration plates. Very soon, the police started a crackdown and they made a good deal of money. How much went into their pockets is not known, but it was there. And they were targeting people who had anything other than the registration numbers stuck on the plates - stickers, initials, LEDs, fancy borders etc.

Yup that was me. I remember going my speedometer above 80 but 95+!! no way. This is the second time someone says like this, I think my car speedo is bit lazy, will get it checked. That 80+ speed was just for few seconds to overtake a bus (Festo one??) on right lane just before lay bye.

Main road - I wanted to go left so switched on the indicator and moved to second lane, there I saw the BUS trying to cut me without indication..so the honking. I did not want to move to right most lane to make way for bus and blocking the traffic.

Sorry dont remember seeing you. Were you the one on left lane behind my car when I moved left to join the main road?

I was in the middle lane, 2 cars behind you, in my usual haathi. By the time I came close you were trying to negotiate the turn. And I was busy eating breakfast, so ...
Not my usual route/time so we have to wait for some other day to bump into each other again.

yep, you were beyond 95km/h, that's for sure because i was chasing you at 95km/h and couldn't catch up. you better get the speedo checked!

when you moved left, there was the Alto behind you. then i overtook it and then i was behind you. overtook you and signaled, but i don't think you would have noticed

but anyway sorry for the miss, hope to catch you sometime ....
just to confirm it was me, did you see a transparent tbhp sticker on rear windshield as well?? was the number an MH12- DS **25
where exactly did this happen?
Yes, then it was most certainly you mate! Flashing wouldnt be of help because I was right next to you. And yeah, the number was MH-12-DS series.

Saw a Tata TL (or was it a Xenon) opposite Le Meridien today (Friday) at around 6.45 PM with Redlining (I think) and LTD stickers, and also an Advocate sticker. The number was KA xx MF 6049 (I think). I was on my bike (because my car is in service centre for repairs), and riding in Bangalore city after more than a year, so I was very nervous to get my concentration off the road to say hi to you.

Today at around 11 am spotted this Wagon R (MH 43 X 74XX) on Kharghar over bridge with "I Drive Safe" and the TBHP transparent sticker on the back. Honked, flashed light, overtook so that the driver could see my sticker, but no response. The driver was with family, may be he is not TBHP member. Who's car is this?

Yesterday I was washing my car at Vashi Inorbit - 2 young guys came and asked me from where I got the Team BHP stickers, explained them and invited them to join the forum. Interesting!
