This isn't just in CT. I drive all over the Northeast and have seen these license plates in just about every state. Mostly rural areas, but was surprised to see one in Trenton , NJ.

Maybe because there's a big stock car track in Thompson.

That just makes things worse. And wouldn't explain Webster.

Seriously, having been stuck in this place for most of the last 25 years - the whole rural country faux-redneck lifestyle here is just baffling considering it's sharp contrast with the rest of New England.

Or maybe it's because I'm flaming liberal wannabe-suburbanite surrounded by faux-rednecks who love country music, evangelical Christianity, and Nascar.

Lol. And people always thought I was crazy for equating eastern CT to the South. Eastern CT is not quintessential New England, that's for sure.

It is not just eastern Connecticut though. There are pockets of this throughout New England. I have seen this in New Hampshire, Vermont and Massachusetts so just don't think it is eastern Connecticut. Jay

Towns like Woodstock are a bit.

Towns along Route 12, anything from Jewett City to Webster - aren't.

However, anything in the "redneck belt" of this area is nowhere near as bad as the deep south.

Maybe they feel like they've been invaded by suburbanites. That can be very frustrating for people used to an actual rural lifestyle.

In new england of all places. As a decendent of confederate veterans I find this faintly amusing.

Confederate flags are just a symbol of rebellion of some type.

They actually don't really bother me much at all, though I wouldn't put one on my car or house.

A rural country lifestyle shouldn't be baffling in New England, its actually a good description for most of it. Red neck might not be apropriate but many people automatically call anything more rural than suburbia "Red neck".
