Several expedients allow us to improve some situations in each area. Many times some do-it-yourself operations allow you to make various elements more aesthetically attractive. In this article we will talk about the license plate of our car and why a little duct tape (and not only) can be really useful. Let’s find out all the details on this aspect. Is it legal? Here’s everything you need to know.
Every car and, in general, any motor vehicle is required to have a regular one plate. As far as four-wheel motorized vehicles are concerned, this element must, by law, be present both in the front and in the back. In practice, it acts as a identification code of any registered car (or other vehicle).
Only with this regularly valid element, therefore, will it be possible to circulate on the road. The license plate identifies the car and its owner. In the event of a road accident or any other offense – serious or minor – the police can trace the owner of the car, thanks to the license plate. Any administrative fine, therefore, will arrive at the home of the legitimate car owner.
It may happen that the plate can break – after an accident – or that it can be lost or stolen. In all these cases, the owner has the obligation to report the fact to the competent authorities as soon as possible. After making a regular report, it will be possible to circulate on the street by hanging a white panel with all the numbers and letters of the license plate on it. This panel must be clearly visible and with the characters of the normal license plate.
Pending the re-registration, the owner can then circulate. If you have not made a request, however, you can face a fine of between 84 and 335 euros. But that’s not all. You may be subject to fine even if the license plate is dirty and, in general, not very visible.
This fine will range from 41 to 168 euros. In case of difficult identification of the license plate, the administrative sanction is triggered automatically. Things get worse if you circulate without a license plate or with this deliberately counterfeit element. In these cases, exemplary penalties can be reached (up to 8,000 euros in fines and administrative detention of the car).
But why do some people put duct tape over the license plate? The reason is not what you think!

To forge or falsify the license plate, some people use duct tape. In doing so, they can change numbers or letters, so as to think they can get away with different situations, such as speed limits exceeded in a section with a speed camera, parking in prohibited parking or other. In reality, one only encounters – as seen – truly exemplary punishments. It’s certainly not worth it. But is this the only function – if so, illegal – of the tape on the license plate?
