License Plate Number Registrations Inundate Website
The Provincial traffic police bureau’s website has been inundated since Tuesday with online applications for 50,000 new license plate number registrations. People were beginning to complain about the time it takes to select plate numbers that they wanted.
One resident complained that it took him about an hour just to log onto the website, and it took him several more hours to select the number he wanted to apply for. The bureau said that the website’s slow function was due to large number of people applying for lucky numbers. A similar problem occurred last March when 50,000 registration plate numbers were released for online applications.
The website did not provide any details on whether a selected license plate number was already chosen or not, frustrating applicants as it takes them much longer to find the right number for them. The bureau said that the website was designed by the provincial traffic authority and there was a software that will assist them in choosing the numbers but it was being sold for150 to 180 yuan.
