Uzbekistan – bribes for the coolest plates

Officially, there’s no extra charge to Uzbekistan drivers for the most desirable plates, but the reality is a different matter. It has come to light that officials are being bribed to hand over the best plates. Some people paying up to seven times the average Uzbekistan salary.

The public are keen to see more regulation with the license plates and a survey has reported that most people would be in favour of the most desirable plates being sold at auction so the proceeds could be put to good use that would benefit all, rather than lining the pockets of a few corrupt officials.

Of course here in the UK you don’t need to resort to bribery to secure a fabulous plate, you can simply visit Speedy Reg and buy yourself your dream plates, and we’re also pretty sure it won’t cost you seven times the average salary!
