That is my favorite so far also. Not just the design, but where my money goes. I don't really want to give my college any more money, they've gotten enough from me over the last four years. And the critical habitat are usually only on redneck trucks

Go with the "Support our Troops."
I wish we had those nice plates here in Wisconsin. All we have are those damned cheesehead Packer plates, Sesquicentennial plates, Endangered Resources plates, National Guard plates, Veteran plates, POW plates, Gold Star plates, Lao Veteran plates, Coast Guard plates, Medal of Honor plates, Freemason plates, Disabled Veteran plates, Firefighter plates, EMT plates, Ducks Unlimited plates, University plates, Celebrate Children plates, and Amateur Radio plates.

Wifey has this one. She wanted a horned frog and preferred this over the Texas Christian Univ. plate. Techincally, this is a horned lizard, but whe doesn't care.
Quoting TX DOT website: From the $30 specialty plate fee, $22 goes to Texas Parks and Wildlife Department for acquisition and development, maintenance or operation of parks, fisheries and wildlife projects.
This is one of my favorites. I might do this next March when my tags are due.

Quoting HPLASOps (Reply 13): I'd say stick with the original design - it's cheaper and classic. Of course, I also have the philosophy of making sure I don't give the government any more money than I have to.
The good thing about the special plates though, is that the government doesn't get any more money. They still only get their $70. The $30 donation goes to whatever cause.

Still though, registering your vehicle is a requirement by law and you are compelled to fork over money to the government, and I would rather not give them anymore than what is absolutely necessary. Plus I have my suspicions when donated money is filtered through a third party. When all the admin costs are taken out, I wonder how much of that donated money actually goes for good.

I have the standard Minnesota plates and think they're one of best looking plates we have in the US.
We also have special plates in for chronic drunk drivers. Shaming these people by forcing them to drive with distincitive plates that let everyone know they're a drunk is a great way to shame them into not doing it again.

Yup, third degree DUI will get you those. On every car registered in your name
Good old Whiskey plate:
I don't know why this one has a weight sticker on it. Never seen a Whiskey plate with weight sticker.
Funny story, heard a cop call in a stop on a whiskey plate. Instead of "William Tom 1234", called in "Whiskey Tequila 1234" (1234 used because I don't remember the actual plate, and wouldn't post it anyways)

Kai, could you clarify the purpose behind the whiskey plates? I know they alone don't give police the proper PC to pull over a car. They must offer some advantage on top of making drunks easily identifiable.

In the state of New Jersey, if one has a DWI conviction, they cannot get 'personalized' plates.
Besides, a bumper sticker is a lot cheaper to express your views, and if they change, you don't have to change your plates. (In NJ, the plates are to the registering person, not the car, you can transfer plates to another car).
