According to details, in September 2018, PMLN-Government gave approval on Punjab Universal Number Plates and Smart Cards Project. The Universal Number plate is launched due to some reason which are mentioned below.
- Universal Number Plates will be Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) – In Simple terms these plates can be easily recognized by Traffic Cameras which were installed in Safe City Project.
- These Plates will fulfill people requirements of fancy plates as now people can design as their desire.
- There is to be a standard number plate across Punjab which means it will not become a problem for cars to be sold to another city. Actually they seem to be smaller than their automobiles as we realize that whenever anyone sells a car in a big city such as Lahore and a vehicle plate is from small cities or towns. This problem will therefore be resolved once and for all.
