    Baring or Bearing

    I observed a vehicle "baring" license plate number 0000........or........I observed a vehicle "bearing" license plate number 0000. Any idea which one to use, baring or bearing?

    "bearing" would be the correct word for that sentence

    bearing

    'Baring' means making something bare, exposing something.
