Never without my department

I few months ago I wrote about how the French government wanted to remove the number of the department from French number plates, something that had led to a cross party alliance to oppose the idea. Well, in the end the government backtracked and a departmental number will still have to
be on the plates. On 12 December the interior minister unveiled the new style of plates. So citizens movements have won out again and we can still play the game of guessing which number is from where on long distance trips in France.
