My point about Traffic Cops focused on the chap who bought the van which turned out to be cloned ...one of the identifying aspects highlighted by the bobby was the number plate without the required name and postcode.

So if everyone was aware of this "futile" law then it might save them from losing thousands buying a ringer eh

I'd reason they're less likely; there seem to be two purposes to cloning - ringing and avoiding fines/duties.

if one is 'ringing' a car for a quick sale, a personal plate is more likely to cause the punter to ask questions, so a standard plate would be better.
If one is trying to avoid payment of charges, one wouldn't want to attract the extra scrutiny of traffic wardens, policemen or CCTV operators, so again a standard plate would again seem a better bet.

good point the chap did mention that about the number plate...surely not beyond the wit of a ringer to add a postcode to his sticker though........

Have to admit didn't check my D3 before buying it.........
