Q: Bicycle Registration, license plate?

Just bought a new bicycle. 

I remember seeings bikes around Beijing with small license plates on the back of them. Does this do anything? Should I register it with the local station or get a license plate for it? is there any benifit in doing this?

In the US people are supposed to get a license from the local police department too.  However, very few people (there or here) actually do.  When you are walking down the street look at the bikes and determine the ratio of bikes that have a plate and those that don't.

The benefit is that if your bike gets stolen, the police can recognize your bike by the plate number and return it to you.  However, the thieves here are hyper-intelligent and will use a screwdriver to remove the license plate from the stolen bike.  Crafty buggers.

Supposedly, if you don't have a license plate you will get fined.  But I have yet to ever hear of that happening to anyone.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
