Number plates in Germany look like this: '''B - AA 1234 '''. Here the first letter (often two, sometimes three) can tell you from which municipality/city a car is coming from. For example '''B''' means [[Berlin]], '''OS''' means [[Osnabrueck]] etc. Even a lot of drivers know the number plate letters, so hitchhiking with a sign saying '''OS''', '''WB''' ([[Wittenberg]]) or something else will be widely understood if you're near that city. Don't try to use a letter from a city in [[Bayern|Bavaria]] in the north of Germany, of course.
