OK, but at least you can get special plates. Here in Holland, your car is
issued a plate without any special combinations- just the way it comes out
in the sequence. Good for stealth, not when you like to get something
One advantage of this system is that you can tell a car's age from its
plates- unless it's a recent import or has otherwise been re-registered.
The plate stays with the car until the car expires.
