Interior Minister Nouhad Machnouk unveiled new Lebanese license plates Thursday during a televised news conference at the Traffic Management Center's headquarters in Dikwaneh, saying they would up security for Lebanese car-owners.The new specifications are an attempt to curb the widespread problem of forged license plates and to increase security.Owners will then present their ID and driver's license at the car registration office in Dikwaneh and pay the fee. They will later present the receipt to companies selling the new license plate. Machnouk billed the change as part of a grander plan to digitize IDs and documents for security purposes, including the adoption of biometric passports and licenses.Further changes will include stickers posted on cars after completing the registration fees (Mechanique), which Machnouk said will contain details on the car, its owner, its registration and other information.
