The police spokesman also disclosed that it is an offence for vehicle owners to cover the number plates of their cars in any form.

“Yes. It’s an offence to fix additional headlamps on your vehicle or bikes, and cover your number plate in any form. You see many vehicles with more than 20 headlamps. This is not allowed.
