Another reason why number plates..

..Should be in the legal font and spaced legally! Fairly recently google have introduced Streetview to their google maps service. Its awesome, but its very scary at the same time as you can view street level photos from almost every country in the world.

There’s been a huge hoo-har about people being spotted doing stuff they shouldn’t, and people saying their car number plates are being displayed against their knowledge and whatever…

Well heres a brilliant example of why your car number plate sh9ould be the legal font and legally spaced;

This person in Nottingham decided they didn’t want to space the letters of their number plate out correctly, which resulted in the google algorithms being unable to determine it was in fact a number plate, and its been totally left out.

I mean, google are clever – but they are not superheros!
