Shandong will eliminate all license plates starting with Lu O and Lu W by the end of 2018. Owners of vehicles who continue to use these kinds of license plates will be punished and called to account from January 1, 2019.

The Lu O license plates begin to be used exclusively by public security vehicles in 1990s, enabling these vehicles to have the priority over other traffic. In Shandong, thousands of governments and public institutions were listed under provincial vehicle management, with a large number of vehicles hanging Lu O license plates.

Vehicles with Lu W license plates are usually private cars belonging to staff members of provincial authorities. Currently, there are over 3,000 such kind of private cars across the province.

In recent years, with the promotion of official vehicle reform, many provincial party and government official vehicles have been cancelled including those displaying lu O license plates.

Since the second half of 2012, Shandong has launched a withdrawal mechanism for Lu O licensed vehicles to take a thorough examination and clean-up of this kind of official vehicles.

From October, the replacement of license plates starting with Lu O and Lu W to one with Lu A has been started. The work is scheduled to be finished by December 31, 2018.

Traffic police departments in Shandong will conduct a series of road inspections, and drivers of vehicles that continue to use Lu O or Lu W license plates will be punished according to relevant laws and regulations. The violations will be reported to the driver's work unit and the department to which the vehicle belongs as well as the discipline inspection and supervision departments.
