According to National Transport And Safety Authority, NTSA, a written off car goes with it's number plates. When the car is destroyed,the plate too is destroyed.

However, Kenyans have identified a loophole in the disposing off of written off cars.

Some Kenyans have alleged that the plates are not entirely destroyed as has been directed by NTSA.
