Yep.

Some of you people's knee jerk reactions to everything is just ridiculous.

No idea what the insinuation is (well actually I have a pretty good idea what the insinuation is) but NC state government is run by the General Assembly, which is dominated by white, male republicans. I suspect thats who you're voting for, no?

It says it on the internet so it must be true. You're the expert as usual, enlighten us all on where the money comes from.

Well genius, how about the annual renewal fee one pays for vehicle registration? Just a thought. Which isn't changing as a result of this new law passed by the General Assembly. A law sponsored in the house by Reps. Shepard and Iler, who don't look like Steve Harvey to me:

Didn't LEOs also complain about the red font plates for the same reason? I know that experiment didn't last too long before NCDOT went back to using blue font.

Flat plates are easier read by license plate reading technology. Big Brother is watching.

But they are not using flat plates and this will mean they are taken out of use much faster.

As far as costs, the actual registration fee is the same the first time and every other time. I’m guessing that when doing them in huge batches the incremental cost just isn’t that much.

You don't think that money is already spent? You think the DMV has a surplus of money just hanging out waiting to be spent on more license plates?
