MEDIA STATEMENT BY RNM:
COUNCIL CONSIDERS A PREFERRED REGISTRATION NUMBER PLATE TO REPLACE NPS
The Council meeting on Tuesday considered a preferred option to replace NPS since it has reached number 99999
The registration number NPS has reached number 99999 and Regulation 34(1) of the National Road Traffic Act No. 93 of 1996 prescribes that a Licence Mark must not exceed a total of eight (8) characters inclusive of both alphabets and digits. The Council had to consider three options in order of priority and make a recommendation to the KZN MEC for Transport for the Ray Nkonyeni Registration Authority.
The Council unanimously agreed on the three following options and in order of priority:
- Option No.1 – NSC (Natal South Coast)
- Option No.2 – NUG (Natal Ugu)
- Option No.3 – NRN (Natal Ray Nkonyeni)
It should be noted that the one option decided upon by the MEC will then be an additional Licence Registration Mark to NPS for Ray Nkonyeni Municipality as the registration authority. Once a final decision has been taken it will then be communicated to the public accordingly.
