(Twitter: @ACollinsPhoto/@SgtKoopman) SHARE TORONTO -- The Ontario government has confirmed to CTV News Toronto that they are looking into reports that the province’s new licence plates are difficult to read at night. “We have been made aware that some Ontarians are reporting concerns with readability to the naked-eye under certain light conditions,” the office of Minister of Government and Consumer Services Lisa Thompson said in an email Monday. The confirmation follows a number of posts to social media that show photos of what appears to be the new licence plates on vehicles at night, with plate details almost impossible to read. “Ok, this was taken off duty in a relatively well lit parking lot with my headlights on,” Kingston police Sgt. Steve Koopman said in a tweet published Saturday night. “Did anyone consult with police before designing and manufacturing the new Ontario licence plates? They’re virtuallly unreadable at night,” Koopman added. Ok, this was taken off duty in a relatively well lit parking lot with my headlights on.

Looking into it. That's hilarious. Get it, cause you can't see them. need one quickly so I can drive on the 407! yay! you know, the one the CONS sold. The one TAXPAYERS paid for. The one that generates BILLIONS annually. Dumb ass Cons Haven't seen the at night problem. They do look remarkably fake though. I guess I didn't know our license plates were such a pressing issue that they would get 'fixed' instead of other important matters.
How can this happen. Wouldn't that be checked before mass production takes place? Someone dropped the ball and rates sure to increase if they need replacing. Maybe that is the purpose, good excuse to raise rates. If it is true the Tory gov't relied on the corporation to test their plates, that is Conflict of interest. The corporation does not speak for the people (profits are always first) - - that is the job of government. DougFord, do your job!
I was just wondering if they are readable on the 407 camera's Frigging ugly. Good no.mote speeding tickets Can they be seen by the cameras on the ETR? Rocket science basically. mcd_mar loooolll
Province 'looking into' reports that new licence plates are difficult to read at nightThe Ministry of Government and Consumer Services says that it is “looking into” concerns that have been raised about the readability of Ontario ’s new licence plates when it is dark out. HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA fordnation HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAH Transportation Minister should be fired .... Simple ..... And remove those useless plates out of the roads asap.....thank you
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA Losers True - saw my first one last week and unreadable with headlights on them (even at early light not nighttime) Melted. People are melting their plates all the time and driving around Toronto. Time for a blitz.
That's cause ford doesn't want to be followed for selling weed That’s true!!!!!!! Wouldn’t have wanted anyone to have checked this out prior to purchasing 🙄🙄 Shocker. Other than that though, good job Doug! Always important to pay attention to details. Like, for example, functionality.
Biggio preparing for season by working on defence, aggressiveness at the plateCavan Biggio looks back at his successful rookie season with the Blue Jays and says he's working to improve his defence and aggressiveness at the plate for next season.
Does not work and needless change is right on brand for fordnation Yup! Let’s legalize pot! See, how stupid people are now! Hello, Trudeau, nobody tested the new product! 😂 public service failing again Running right out to replace my white ones! Can 407 cams read them? I love the new plates finally they are changing the old crappy boring plates . Just wishing they improve the quality of the plates that are poorly done .
No bridge/road tolls at night. Drove behind a car with the new plate last Wed night and we commented how ridiculous it was because you can not read it. I said to my husband I hope they don’t have to send out an Amber Alert because you won’t be able to see it at night More money wasted by the ford government
ECraighenC If only...they thought BEFORE they acted. On anything. I'm sure they tested them before they sent them out , I mean it's our government they would never be so careless to waste all that tax payer money without testing them first, right

Perfect 407 here I come Am I the only person with functioning eyes? There's zero issue with reading them lol. And I'm not even a Ford supporter Sounds par for the course for a Doug Ford initiative I guess we don't put any thought into anything? The price for my stickers better not go up after this is all changed.
& they're so ugly,its embarrassing! Didn’t anyone bother to check!! The whole mandate of Dougie and the slugs is to run this government like Brewsters Millions. Spend money in ways that it’s pure waste while reducing all avenues of income for the province until privatization is the only way to survive.
ONpoli Didn’t the same company (Astley Gilbert) that made the faulty gas pump stickers also make these license plates? Why is Doug Ford rewarding incompetence? Oh right - they are a huge Conservative donor! ....and this was not tested beforehand.....🤨 Unreadable at night, you say! Perhaps that is the intent. The Ford government is totally corrupt and incompetent.
Matt Gurney: This is Doug Ford’s Caledonia momentICYMI - Matt Gurney: Doug Ford's Caledonia moment mattgurney mattgurney Dollarama Doug is incapable of learning anything from the failures previous governments. He's determined to remake all those mistakes himself. mattgurney Hey, who does Justine Trudeau’s brother Alexandre work for? He works for Iranian Government Alexandre “Sascha” Trudeau. Why hidden? Because if the general Canadian population understood exactly who brother “Sascha” is, it would damage Justin’s reputation and dilute his voter-base mattgurney You need a history lesson before you badmouth Doug Ford. Google the name Dudley George. Ford is hesitant to act because he is damed if he does and damed if he doesn't. The court injunction is in place, the cops have to do there jobs.
Cool. Good for you Ontario. Don’t let the feds take them away Good one fordnation 👏🏼 Need to get me one. I would be interested to know if this design was tested by the Ministry of Transportation. When I worked there long ago, they tested road signs and paint samples to ensure that they were visible under all lighting conditions. I can't imagine them not testing license plates.
How the fiddle sticks is that not something that is apart of the test before launch It's time to swap to the new ones people, let's go! Perfect Every criminal & their associates will be getting new plates real fast. Well done, fordnation Hey Doug , can we trade the plates for beer ?
Doctors and Alberta government consider options after mediation for new deal failsLate last month the Alberta government and physicians brought in a mediator to help break a logjam in talks to replace the current contract, which expires at the end of March
I know! I have see many cars really dirty on the back, just to avoid tickets for police! fordnation must have been smoking his brother’s crack when he came up with this idea Somehow i am not a bit surprised . Morons . 😂😂😂 Works for me Maybe it’s just the dollar beers ... Why do we need new license plates? White was fine.
No Photo Tickets at night 👍🏻

That’s Dougie for you. Another two years and then let’s all promise never to vote for a Conservative again. Hope so Ol’Dougie jealous of people who can read and wants everyone to see letters that way he sees them. Another Fordism Agreed, I couldn’t read the licence plate of the car directly in front of me the other night either! I was actually wondering how cops would be able to…?
Actually it is! I’d love to know the genius at the SAAQ who designed the green plates for electric vehicles. They’re completely indistinguishable when dirty & I’ve heard of people getting pulled over by SQ in HOV lane because even they can’t tell. Can governments just stop trying to change things that aren’t broken. Is that to much to ask. At the very least could you please consult with the people that need to read them the most. ie The police officers.
I'm not sure it's the color of the paint but the type of paint. Something like this this happened in NL years ago (last time plates were changed) But they caught it on time. Someone took the sample plate out in the dark & shined a light on it. B4 public use
I need one here in Germany 😂 Idiots... Wow. Big surprise! They didn't check this? The word Fordnation = Stupidity! Only thing I can come up with is someone is getting their cut of the deal. 'Follow The Money' like the man said. Just a guess here but it was either an AI program or an engineer that designed the plate.
Another waste of tax payers money. Where’s a class action lawsuit when you need it?! Wow. Colour me surprised.... Garbage from a Garbage gov't. I mean, were they all high when they decided these were a good idea? Smh More proof morons work at the highest levels of our country. Why wouldn’t you test a prototype before mass production?
Maybe they should have done that a little earlier. I sure this little debacle shouldn't raise Doug's sky high deficit to much. It' s already 3 times Wyne's projected numbers What a joke! They needed reports to wake up to this issue. Clearly shows that the whole plate re-design was never analyzed seriously. I saw a new plate last wk & I assumed there was some problem with my eyes :-)
The one function of a license plate: to read it Clowns to the left of me, Jokers to my right here I am..... The police must be very pleased with these. 😄😄😄 This people think they are so inteligente but they don’t know have to do nothing right and at the end the tax payers are the ones who pay for it.
One would think they would have done some test or something before rolling them out. All the criminals are going to want these plates. 🙃 Probably had fordnation buddies develop design and produce. He is about making his friends rich?
Doesn’t surprise me one bit. Now let’s see how many millions were spent first to do the study on the new change and then how many millions are going to be spent to correct this government fk up . Tax dollars hard at work folks !!! Hahahaha so stupid. Surely nobody could be stupid enough to roll these plates out before doing some quality assurance testing?
brilliant.....just brilliant (no pun intended) The licence plates were obviously rushed through. The government should be more careful to do things properly. Ah ha! Now I know why this was high priority for this government. Oh no. How ever will they generate revenue now? Another failure of a PC government
Taxpayer money well spent.
What a waste of taxpayers money, again, by fordnation They had to let the cat out of the fucken bag yeeeeeaaaaahhhhhhhh 😂🌹 They are unreadable during the day too. They are so UGLY and fake looking!!
