Understanding the reason for the application of Trust plates on

equipment might need more than one piece of evidence as to its legal

is striking that EVERY builder and amateur photo of new cars on roads
for which I have good coverage (of course, for classes with trust
plates) shows a plate. But that could have varied from road to road, or
from trust issuer to issuer.
