License Plates

Thu Jul 27, 2006 9:26 am

So it's that time of year again, and I have to renew my tabs. I could just pay my $70 and get new stickers for my current plates, which look like this:


Or get a special plate for $48.50 more ($30 following years).

I can choose from:

Support our Troops (fee supports military families):


Collegiate (outdated pic, different school logo now) (fee supports the school):


Critical Habitat (fee support DNR in creating habitats for animals):



What do you guys think?

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  Wink

Just renewed mine . . .$139 for two years. Not too shabby at all.

Alaska has gone back to the simple Blue Letters on a Yellow background license plate. There are of course the Veterans plates, etc, but the Goldrush, is no longer available.

I have the Goldrush plate, as it depicts the climb over the Chilkoot Pass near where I grew up.

Looks like this:


The other standard plates available look like this.

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.

Pics of all the different plates

I hate them all. But I'd like a set of these...

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.

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.

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)

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).

While we're on the subject of license plates, I'll mention this. The plate below was put on a brand new Explorer about a decade ago, and because of the "aviation theme" I thought I'd keep it.

Funny thing was, driving that thing was analogous to flying a 747 given the size and height.

You can also get Euro-style plates to put on your Beemer or Benz



Personalised plates are a rort here, they can cost anything up to $600-$700 depending on the plate, but you do own the rights to them. Registration is extra, around $550 per year here, depending on if you're in the City or a rural area.

A peace officer who observes the operation of a motor

So techically we can. However, due to the abundance of lawyers, it is much easier to find another reason to stop them. Like burnt out license plate light  Wink It also grabs some extra attention to watch their driving habits and randomly running that plate rather than the car next to it.

Listen, I'm from New York, and I personally love NJ's gas laws. You don't have to get out of car (great for winter with heating and great for summer with AC) and you get to pay 40 to 50 cents less a gallon to boot! I'd rather sit comfortably in my car and tip the guy a dollar then have to get out and pay 6 to 10 dollars more for lower-quality gas! (NJ doesn't put any additives in their gas like NY does).

Sad state of affairs here in Nevada. Someone in Carson City (the capitol) thinks we are part of California. We get this:

...as the basic plate. If you want the old solid 'cobalt blue with silver letters' (the state colors) you have to pay extra. That is the problem with public funded 'art' it rarely pleases anyone.

Even the previous 'goat plate' was better than this California-looking thing.

Isn't it about time we simply start putting transponders in cars anyway. What the hell is this big lump of steel about.
