In Nigeria and other countries, a vehicle’s number plate number is one of the recognised ways for the government to identify a particular vehicle. However, it is obvious that sometimes several vehicles can have the same model, colour, and characteristics, making it practically hard for people to tell them apart.
As a result of this development, the concept of the vehicle plate number was developed to make it simple for people to identify individual vehicles or automobile in the event of auto theft.
