Quite surprised that "69" plates were issued at all.

Yes, my 69 spotting reputatation is in tatters. Turns out the Toyota Hybrid sported the other day was nothing of the sort it was in fact a Honda Civic. pic later

Also saw a definite vehicle from the PSA stable. A black Vauxhall Astra.

It is odd that BJ69 got by Swansea's sometimes difficult to fathom censureship criteria - but "The matter came to a head" was an unfortunate expression to use in the story.

Just wondered why the last 3 letters were not shown? Were they DNF?

When I'm driving I rarely look for number plates, or even car types, so naturally miss most.
I do have to walk a few miles to and from the workshop that fixes the families cars and try and keep a lookout but have singularly failed to see a 69 yet.

Still haven't seen one but did see this.
All these 69 number plates have been banned by the DVLA

Just seen one in the Halford's parking bay - BMW X5.
No, I wasn't going to Halfwits, next door though, Home Bargains.
