Let me preface and say that I drive A LOT mostly in NC. When looking at peoples license plates in NC, the lettering, I thought, was always blue. Lately I've noticed that there is a lot of red lettering on the NC plates. Is this something new?

I know this is trivial, but something I've noticed lately. Am I nuts???

Thanks,

Most states rotate their tag designs every five to 15 years. North Carolina last changed the standard design in 1982. Only Delaware, which uses a 1962 design, has kept the same standard design longer than North Carolina.

Where do you get all these useless (but great facts for a chat board) from?

Because I am originally from Ohio, I personally hate the NC license plates. I think the plate should be changed to "First to fly planes built in Ohio". or "Two guys from Ohio built an airplane in Ohio and flew it here", or "All of the inovation and science required to fly came out of Ohio, but they used our sand and wind".

Thanks everyone!!!! So let me get this straight....they're "redesigning" the old license plates by simply changing the color of the lettering???

Gosh, you would think that someone could have done better and put it out like in a contest or something.

Anyone have any suggestions as to what they'd like to see on a NC License Plate??? How about a picture of a pig and the line "Our BBQ is Better Than Yours!"

They actually have given you more options for your plate than what has been mention some Im ok with but others I think it a little over done.

I personally rather the new designs to be stuck to carolina base teams and landmarks.

I also think some states go overboard with their license plate design that I do not know what state they are from anymore.

Here are various things you can do to your license plate

To answer the Ohio poster Kitty Hawk was where the self-propelled aircraft was first successfully flown on December 17, 1903, at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina on flights of just over 100 feet to over 800 feet. No one is disputing the location of the wright brothers or that ohio was first in avaition but Kitty Hawk is where the first self propelled flight over 800 ft took place.

Yep, the color change is it. Maybe the state wants North Carolinians to sign up for one of the 100+ specialized plates instead.
