New Gauteng number plates to launch in December 2010

The proposed Gauteng number plate system
I wrote about the new proposed Gauteng number plate system back in November 2009, and now finally, it seems that those new number plates will come into effect in December 2010.

Of course, one of the reasons that the current system of number plates have run out so soon, is because it never used vowels. The current system of BBB000 GP, doesn't use vowels. If I calculated correctly, the current system (without using vowels and excluding personal and government vehicles) can only take about 9,261,000 numbers, whereas if vowels were used it would've taken 17,576,000 numbers. Almost double the amount! Now they want new numbers which would cost people more, again!
