New Number Plate System
The KwaZulu-Natal provincial executive council has announced that a new number plate system will be implemented in the province, replacing the current system that has exhausted all possible combinations. The new number plates will bear the letters ‘ZN’ to represent KwaZulu-Natal.
Transition Period and Considerations
Motorists in KZN will be given a two-year transition period to migrate from the current number plate system to the new ‘ZN’ system. The provincial executive council has emphasized the importance of minimizing any unnecessary financial burden on motorists during this transition. Additionally, the council aims to involve local manufacturers in the value chain of producing the new number plates.
Public Consultations and Communication
Transport MEC Sipho Hlomuka has been urged to fast-track public consultations by issuing government gazettes. These consultations will ensure that the transition process takes into account the opinions and concerns of the public. Furthermore, the government plans to launch an aggressive communication campaign to inform motorists about the changes and the benefits of the new number plate system.
Benefits of the New Number Plate System
The implementation of the new ‘ZN’ number plate system is expected to yield several benefits. Firstly, it will assist in the fight against crime by enabling better identification and tracking of vehicles. The unique ‘ZN’ identifier will contribute to a common sense of identity for the province, creating a stronger sense of community and pride among KZN residents.
