Lucky license plate number 9999 sold under auction for 1,810,000 baht, with proceeds to be donated to the Department of Land Transport’s fund for road accident victims. The winning bidder for the favored license plate was Municipal City Council member Kasem Parameesilkajorn at the December 19 and 20 auction of license plates and commemorative Lhin Ping images held at the Empress Hotel by Chairat Sa-nguansue, Director-General of Department of Land Transport. More than 1200 people registered for the auction, and on auction day another 300 showed up for a chance to bid on one of the 301 lucky number license plates and images of the panda, Lhin Ping that were available.

Assathai Rattanadilok Na Phuket, Director of the Chiang Mai Provincial Land Transport Office, said that the auction had better than expected result, earning around 20 million baht, adding that he believed it was due to the special blessings conferred on both the license plates and the Lhin Ping images.

This is the third time the Department of Land Transportation has auctioned off lucky license plates, earning 22 million baht the first year and 18 million baht on the second auction.

Shows how superstitious the locals are. I bet the guy with the 1.8 M baht number plate now believes he is invincible and can drive as he pleases. TiT.

Maybe now they can put in a lift so that they do not have to carry people with disabilities up the stairs to process their licence.
