RFID number plates to hit Malaysian highways

Tracking traffic to find stolen motors
Published: Monday 11 December 2006

RFID licence plates are set to be introduced next year by the Road Transport 
Department in Malaysia, according to reports.

Authorities there are hoping the high-tech plates will curb car theft, with each 
chip containing information about a vehicle and its owner.

It means police will be able to scan cars at roadblocks, see if a car's plate 
matches its registered details and detect stolen vehicles.

New cars will reportedly be the first to sport the new tags with older vehicles 
following suit in the staggered rollout of the proposed RFID-tagged plates.
