So, from yesterday as the last eu-country, you can have a danish "EU" licenceplate.
BUT to make it important: you can choose the old or the new plates as well. Typical danish solution

Sounds like the British solution. It is entirely optional so most car dealers (who put the plate on when the car is first registered or put another plate on 2nd hand cars so their name is along the bottom) leave it out incase anyone with a strong dislike of the EU buys the car. I find this annoying as they look so much neater and negates having to locate an oval sticker on the car.

Even we got it before you! Though, it's optional here too, though there are few without it, mostly anti-EU people.

Is the plate with the EU band going to be more popular?

Yes I'm pretty sure.

Heard the numbers for new plates on monday, for a town somewhere in Jutland, they issued 3 old plates and 37 EU plates. In Odense it was 61 EU plates and 28 old ones.

Same thing in Sweden, you can still choose not to have the EU badge (albeit it is rare to see a new car without one).

I don't want to have the EU badge on the front plate, because that makes it harder to get a fine if you're caught by a speed camera abroad. I've been caught twice in France and once in Germany, but I haven't had to pay anything due to my not having the badge at the front

I don't think that matters, nowadays, not all vehicle registration plates of foreigners are known in databases. I have been caught in France too, but never got a fine. Not all countries exchange those things (yet).

In Germany fines for speeding are extremely low. I think up to now they used to throw out tickets for minor infractions. Pursuing them wasn't really feasible.
But I think all that is about to (slowly) change thanks to the EU.

This year, a German friend of mine got a parking ticket in Vienna (with German plates) and he thought instead of paying up, he'd wait and see what happens. A month or two later, he got a letter from the German authorities and long story short, the ticket ended up costing him a LOT more.

Shot with 6300 at 2009-10-18 The Danes (we)should show a little bit more respect for the swedish town of Malm÷ and show it on the sign as it is called as well. It is not hard to guess but still not everyone who recognise the letter "ě" as "Í"
