Transport Ministry specifies registration system errors
The Transport Ministry says that the new vehicle registration system contains incorrect owner information for about half a million cars and a total of more than a million errors in general. In some cases the system does not show the current owner of a vehicle but rather a previous owner. In other cases the owner cannot be identified through a database comparison. Licence plate numbers do not concur with their owners in some 21,000 cases and there are 7000 cases of duplicate Vehicle Identification Numbers.
