Tuesday's Three Burning Legal Questions: License Plate Edition

Here are today's three burning legal questions, along with the answers provided by the blawgosphere.

1) Question: 
I acquired Alabama vanity license plate "XXXXXXX" for my car (as an "homage" to my nickname, Racer X). Now I'm suddenly receiving as many as 10 parking ticket notices a day from the city of Birmingham. Any advice?

Answer: Change your plates or get used to it. (The Birmingham News via Howard Bashman)

2) Question: My friend in Beijing, China has asked me to join a 5-person gang to help him fend off any competitors for a license plate ending in number 8888 (8 is a lucky number in China). Basically, he'll pay us all $1,500 to stand by the machine that is issuing the number plates at a Beijing vehicle registration center and use knives and clubs to severely beat anyone who comes near the machine. Should I go for it?

Answer: No. You'll end up down $6,500, plus spend a year in jail. (BBC News)

3) Question: I am simply fed up with these traffic cameras in China catching me for speeding and running lights. Is there some kind of remote control device out there that will allow me to instantly switch the numbers on my license plates, on demand?

Answer: Of course! (The Guardian)
