today i learned – fri 12th oct 2018

this is possibly something you’ve never even noticed … but this is pretty cool 😊

#tdil the reason why front and rear number plates are different colours in the uk 🚗

in case you’ve never noticed or don’t live in the uk, cars in the kingdom have a white number plate on the front and a yellow one on the rear 🤔 it’s never really made sense to me!

after some research, however, i’ve found the reason! it turns out that it’s solely to allow people to easily know whether a car is facing towards them or away from them 👍🏻

because of that, it allows people to determine whether a car is coming towards them or heading away from them #safety 😊

apparently, yellow was chosen because it gave the highest colour contrast (other than white) with the black lettering that is on the plate 😁

and that’s that! super fast one today because i’m pushed for time 🙈 regardless, it’s a pretty useful one 😏

laters peeps! 😍 #tdil
