You're right, Oregon has an awesome plate! I can't believe I forgot about that one.

You know, you could be right; I never thought about it that way. Come to think of it, Indiana's counties have a certain number (i.e. 49 for Marion County/Indy) at the beginning of our license plates so if a person is familiar with the numbers, they could know where a person's from by looking at the first two numbers. I only know a few county numbers by heart though.

Illinois--subtle. You can barely make out Abe Lincoln's face.
New York--I like the crosscut of NYS
California--so simple but elegant. Alot of letters and numbers though. How do you figure out the numbering system?
Texas--panorama of the symbols of Texas. Notice the Texas flag in the Texas outline dot on new plates instead of the red Texas outline?

lol I have a 1. Thats cool.

Best plates: Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee, North Dakota, Texas


Love the stars and music notes. Love the patriotic colors.

Nice design with the flower, state lettering.

Tennessee (not pictured) - nicely redesigned

Moderator cut: link removed, linking to competitor sites is not allowed

North Dakota - distinctive


I wanted to add South Carolina - the idea is nice - the palmetto and the Smiling Faces slogan, but the lettering looks too cheap and unreadable for it to look professional.

The new Alabama tags (which I can't find on the web anywhere) are OK, you can't tell what county somebody's from on the new ones, which is good as I have found that cops in rural counties like to pick on you if you have a 1 or a 58 (Jefferson and Shelby counties respectively) on your tag.


The only thing I don't like about the new AL tag is the "God Bless America" line on the bottom, because I know in Alabama "God Bless America" means "God Damn Everybody Else." Sorry, just telling it like it is. It's very much political and according to Gov. Riley it's supposed to show support for the troops in Iraq. Whatever.


Up here in Illinois, I actually happen to like our "Land of Lincoln" plates. They actually look a lot like Alabama plates (same colors, red white and blue).


I don't think states near or adjacent to each other should have similar looking plates. Mississippi and Tennessee have nearly identical license plates, and this wouldn't be too much of a problem if it weren't for the fact that the two states are right next to each other! I mean they have the exact same color, the exact same shade of green, the exact same format, the exact same everything basically. That must cause a lot of headaches for law enforcement, especially in the Memphis area (Memphis is in Tennessee, but its suburbs are in Mississippi).

It's not a replacement for the original but an alternate. If you don't want the first one:



You can chose to have this one instead. Other states are doing this...I know MI does.


Btw, I found it here: Standard and Disability Access Tags Liz
