^ To me it looks like the city code will be on the right where "AB" is.... unusual but interesting.

I thought that they were already invalid (since the currnet series was announed).
I know that in some parts cars still drive with Serbian (and not Kosovar) plates, but that won't be changed with the new plates. I think.

The new license plate will look like this:



Which ofcourse is far better than the old one, whatever nationality you are.

Once again:

All these proposal are not official! What we know from the interview, which link i've posted, is:

., The new plates will have the arm of coats of the Republic of Kosovo including "RKS" under it and a city code.
., The first one who will get those licence plates are cars of officials (which will happen in the end of september or in the beginning of october 2009) and in the second phase every random car, which is registred in Kosovo.
., The old yugoslav plates and those from UNMIK won't be anymore valid.
., If anyone thinks he can continue with using the old yugoslav plates (PR, UR, PE, GL, etc.), he will be stopped and punished by the kosovo police.

The problem with the plates was (is?) political. Kosovo was waiting for its code, but that took a little longer than initially expected due to those political reasons. When Kosovo started issuing its passports in July of 2008, it used the RKS code to identify the country. Then Kosovo reapplied for the new code to be RKS and that took a while too. The Ministry of Interior, which is in charge of license plates, says that they have official approval from UN bodies for RKS and that they'll start issuing them this autumn. I know we've heard this story before, but it's a combination of politics and one-off things that any new country has to do (like apply for a new code, etc). Hopefully they'll keep their word this time!

And again: Such plates are *already* illegal (despite the use of it in northern Kosovo).

Yes, but declaring the UNMIK-Plates as legal and the old yugoslav one illegal created a lot of tenses within the incoorporative part of the serbian kosovans (according to them it such a "political step" would have been too "pro-albanian"). So what happend: The yugoslav plate got declared as "illegal", against the politicial opionion of some serbs, but no one did anything against the presence of the "yugoslav past" on the roads, even the kosovo police not.
Now, after the inauguration of the new plates, it's easier to get the old yugoslav plates dissapered, when you do the same with the UNMIK-ones.

In the past in Kosovo a lot of clocks, worked not as the should.

I saw on National Geographic yesterday that Serbs in the Albanian part of Kosovo remove their license plates because otherwise people will start throwing rocks at them. According to NG it's also the other way around. Is this all true?

Wouldn't surprise me. The downside of regionalized license plates is people from competing cities (or like soccer clubs) occasionaly tend to vandalize stuff from the other city/club.

In this case it's about Kosovars vs. Serbs. I haven't heard of such a situation before. Belgium isn't that bad

It isn't. Most K-Serbs who don't live in the north already have KS plates so no need for them to remove anything. That's some poor journalism - at best.

There is not such thing as Kosovars and Serbs. Kosvars are all people from Kosovo including Serbs.

Kosovar was (is) used to distinguish between Albanians from Kosovo and those from Albania. Also, there is such a thing as Kosovar as that's the nationality of the citizens of Kosovo. Nationality as in citizenship, not ethnicity.

I would like to arise towards the sense of maturity and ask all members of this forum to end this discussion about ethnicity and nationality, What Buddy says may or may not be correct but the discussion between him and other people has nothing to do with the thread. It would be a shame to see posts dissapear and people banned. Better we watch our directions and avoid this.

Agreed?
