Road Safety Campaign - Measures to initiate clear display of number plates

On a recent trip to Bangalore, I happened to notice that there are many trucks on the Bangalore city roads and highways connecting to it fitted with a Crash Guard at the back, which hide the number plate. Even from close distance, one can never find out the registration number of these vehicles. 

I was thinking of a scenario in which these trucks causing an accident. It will be impossible to track them easily. 

If not already in place, we should have clear guidelines to display the registration number of the vehicles in a clearly visible manner.

A request was submitted to Bangalore Traffic Police to review, observe and consider appropriate guidelines and actions to restrict this.

In return, BTP, have come back informing that they have noted my request and will inform field staff to take necessary action, as appropriate.
