Are the new number plates fugly or what?
Ugly or not, if they are really gonna be used to crack down on the lunatics that are :
I always wondered how it is possible for non-Arabic speaking people to read the old license plates.
At least, this can be viewed as an improvement in that area.
Beauty vs Function, I suppose :)
Will there still be the option of the long european style plates?
But if you say it is an improvement then how come the british and Americans dont have the arabic version on their plates. Dont they want improvement?
Very Fulgy as you asked …
seems like we’re back in the 80s now ..
yes there is an improvement in terms of the “re-addition” of the Latin alphabet along with arabic numbers that have Zeros that can be read from a distance ( I’m not talking about the Indian numbers )
we’ll wait and see how it goes … wonder how long they would last before they run out of numbers this time
As for Saudi Entrepreneur’s comment…I can read Arabic numbers (initially with some difficulty, now with “fluency”), but one thing that always got me was the way that the numbers on plates are written from left to right. This confused me greatly during several jaunts to Arab countries, as I would always read the numbers “backwards”, causing a whole world of problems. Yup, I got into a lot of accidents! :-D
Ugly.. but I like that it has both Arabic and english clear on it.. some thing to look forward to when I get back home.. I guess?
fugly is under estimated
Compare with the Kuwait license plate. Which one looks better?

Ugly to me.
If u say its improvement then why not ask the americans and british to add arabic version to their own.
1. Since every body can read Arabic digits (123), there is no need what-so-ever for using the Indian digits.
2. It is much harder 2 read 4 police officers.
3. Do u agree that government departments should have a centralized PR institution 2 go to when they need 2 do somthing like this?
