Publication Abstract: 

Vehicle license plates are essential for identification and are closely associated with road safety and security. This paper highlights a few studies that involve the evaluation of license plates for vehicles used in Saudi Arabia. There currently exists two types of license plates for cars (normal and long) and one type for motorcycles. The authors examine various readability design aspects of the license plates. Based on the results, an enhanced design for each type of plate is suggested. Results from a pilot survey also support the preference of the proposed design for each type of plate.
