Diplomatic Plates/ Ruby Tuesday

Most Ontario licence plates are blue on white, but diplomatic plates are RED. Hmmm. I wonder who was in that car ahead of us!

Everytime I see the special car plates, too, I wonder who's inside. =)

My Ruby Tuesday entries are now posted in my food blog and photo blog. Hope you can drop by. Thanks!

Never thought about license plates. Great shot, who's inside?

It would have been interesting to know who was in the car. Probably a secretary out to get lunch.
:-D

Felisol said...

The license plate says "yours to discover". Now I am getting curious.
In Europe the diplomats are riding with CD plates.- French for Corps Diplomatique. French is the international language of diplomats, while the rest of us use English to get around the world.
I've gotta come back to find out more about those plates!

dot said...

Now I will be forever wondering. lol.

Kris said...

HRH the Queen, of course!

~Just Me~ said...

Mmmmm...could you call the local police and do a trace on the plate? lol sorry too much CSI!

Nice shot though!

Ralph said...

I don't see that many Ontarians traveling in Connecticut, but the crown stands out nicely in the middle of the plate.

Although don't some of the plates carry the tagline "Keep it Beautiful"?

They can't be big spending diplomats necessarily. It is a Toyota, not a Rolls-Royce they're driving!

Carletta said...

Very clever catch!
I would have had to try and pass them to see if I recognized anyone. :)

Yen said...

Yup,me too! I always wonder who's inside the car! :) Who knows anyways! Mine is posted HERE. Happy RT!~

In Spain the same diplomatic have RED plates...

Tink *~*~* said...

Perhaps it was a spy... or a sultan... or some equally exotic character. Do they allow diplomats immunity from parking tickets in your city, like they do in New York?

Ralph,
The old plates, which some of still have on our cars (tee hee), say Keep it Beautiful. The new ones say Yours to Discover. ;-)

Tanya said...

I love the crown on the plate, so royal looking!

Shammickite said...

Probably just one of the secretaries going for lunch!

see you there! said...

So, do they get special privileges wht those plate? Not stopped for speeding? No parking tickets?

Mojo said...

Could be practically anyone I would guess. Wouldn't the cars from foreign embassies or missions also carry Ontarian registration? You might have been driving behind the foreign minister from any country that has diplomatic relations with Canada.

Melli said...

Some diplomat I bet! *g* Great find!

Dianne said...

Great photo

Most of the diplomats here drive these huge Lincoln Town Cars so I appreciate the Corolla :)

Becky and Gary said...

Cool Shot. Maybe you should feel honnored getting so close to the higher ups. LOL.

Ivar Ivrig said...

A diplomate in a Toyota Corolla? Wonder which country he/she represent. Not one of the riches ones I guess :-)
