Do you know your licence plate number? When was the last time you checked that the licence plate on your vehicle belongs to you? Police often get reports of stolen licence plates, licence plates that have been switched from one vehicle to another or will find the wrong licence plates on stolen vehicles.

Memorize your licence plate.

Take a minute everyday to confirm that the licence plate on your vehicle is yours.

In the event your vehicle or licence plate ever get stolen, you have that information to pass along to the police.
