Vehicle registration numbers up for sale
Transport Department said an auction of vehicle registration numbers would be held on July 11 at the Convention and Exhibition Centre in Wan Chai. A total of 280 plates, including '8964' which apparently represents the date of the Tiananmen Square crackdown in 1989, will be put up for sale. Auction rules stipulate that people who make a pre-auction bid of HK$1,000 for any particular registration number must still turn up and bid. A list of registration numbers can be seen on the department's website: www.td.gov.hk.
