I'm a Goan and I love Goa too. But, this kind of no. plate is totally unacceptable. Discipline and uniformity should be maintained.
I believe, a no. plate should bear just the registration no. and nothing else. Stickers and pictures, if any, should be taken off. I'm also against having nos. written in Devnagri script. Sadly, even some government cars don't follow these rules.

i remember seen a few plate's, one from Karnataka on a white accent which appeared "KAOS" thou the number was "KA-05". Just a wild looking font gave a different look,
the other was on an Indigo in which the last four number appeared as "BOSS"
the number were "8055".

Hey Aditya,

Not only are you against the devnagiri script on number plates, but so is the law!
It is illegal to have your number plate written in any language other than english i believe (remember reading that in the midday...am i right?)

This reminds me,

The other day i saw two really "interesting" ikons.

The first had 2 numberplates at the back (no V12, no jhol..both were the same number ) one in the regular place and on on the bumper.....quite strange!...i dont see the logic...

And the other ikon i saw had a rear spoiler... and instead of a LED stop-lamp on that spoiler they had mounted a motorbike's taillight!! quite an interesting mod!....lol

talking about stop lights....a friend of my father who drives a permier padmini has a mirror (rear mirror) mounted where the 3rd stop light should me. told that in case anyone high beams him from behind the light reflects right back! also I noticed atleast 3 cars with maharashtra written in full (the esteem was in english, the zen was in hindhi/marathi, and the santro was not in any language I know but a tamil friend who was with me told me it looks like malyali) all one one drive last night.
