Good grief, you should have not provided a comments section. There are enough idiotic and in some case abrasive statements in there to seriously hurt the documents credibility. Esecially the ones attacking the police. No sympathy from the powers above to be gained that way.
Good luck with your campaign.
I just glanced through a few of the comments. Has anyone mentioned that in these cash-strapped times, requiring only one plate could save the state $$$ in the manufacturing and mailing of plates, not to mention all the energy saved in only having to manufacture half the plates?
Also, for certain cars at least, a front plate can hurt the vehicle's aerodynamics, decreasing fuel efficiency. Although not a big deal for only one car, it could be more significant when muliplied across a whole state's worth of cars.
These may be goofy ideas, but I figure getting the law changed needs a more convincing argument than "it makes my exotic car look bad." In a state like NY, playing the "green" card might be more successful.
BTW, I'd love for this to work in NY. Maybe then, we could enact some change here in IL.
In FL what is really stupid is that they send you a new license plate every 4 years with a new number on it unless you have a personalized plate. I callled and said it was a waste of taxpayer dollars and asked if they were doing it to keep the inmates busy.
The person at the DMV said that they change the format every 4 years so they can tell if people are using old license plates illegally.
One year they might be LLL ###, then L#L ##L, then L## LLL etc
(L stands for letter and # for a 1-9 digit number)
Sounds kind of dumb to me. I have seen some old black Delaware plates that are over 40 years old and in TX, the plate stays with the car and goes tot he new owner. In FL there are about 40 or 50 types of personalized plates that you can get from I Love Bass Fishing to Nascar Fan, so you cant even tell what state it is from if it has a frame that is blocking the name of the state.
