If your car gets stolen, or if you lose your license plate, you don't want that someone else starts using your license plate and goes driving too fast, but that you get the fines. So they add an extra '1', so that you can keep your license plate, but that other people won't abuse the lost plate. Sorry if this sounds confusing, btw, but I can't explain it better

I don't know, but I think it could be a mistake. However, now we can have whichever plate we like. I live in Ljubljana, but I can have a license plate of Maribor, f.e. Therefore it was planned that our new plates would look like this (those letters don't stand for anything):



...but we love our local coats-of-arms much more than the national one, so the towns on plates stayed, even though they make no sense sometimes.

You can register your car anywhere in Slovenia, I don't think we're the only such country. However, I've already explained why the towns and coats-of-arms stayed (b/c we like them too much; regionalism is quite strong here).

We have that in the Netherlands. Car insurance is usually more expensive in the Randstad area than rural areas in Drenthe or something.

we have 7 rates of insurance, and it depends about which city code you have. the most expensive is Zagreb because there is the largest risk of stealing the car or accident. the cheapest is DA (Daruvar, it is in my county and many people from BJ take it if they can) and one mor, i think DE (Delnice). but you cannot get DA if you don't have your documents written on that area

And anyway, we don't like our national coat-of-arms, so we've even chosen our new flag, which never came into existance though:

No, this is just a photoshopped one I guess. Just to give you an impression. No one posts his official license plate on the internet..
