A lot of these number plates are only amusing because of their spacing. Here I found the UK's position on this:

You must not alter, rearrange or misrepresent the letters or numbers
Characters must not be moved from one group to the other
(e.g. A242 ABC must not be displayed as A242A BC).

Obviously this is for speed camera recognition and to stop people being general muppets. HK seems to have no such law around this (that I could find with 20 seconds of googling) and so it allows Mr. T here.

Now if it was just "MRT" Then it wouldn't get a second look would it? And bored bloggers looking for somone to pick on wouldn't take a photo of it and upload it to the internet for general frippery would they?*

Whatever the case, this is a grown up adult person that done this and, therefore I think when they drive to say, a funeral, or school parents day, or, let's face it, to the shops, they might just feel a bit of a twat when everyone looks and sees they have a number-plate that refers to a camp 80's icon.

Or am I just being a bit harsh in pitying the fools?

* They might.
