Although I love the scissortail bird, I do not care for the new plates. I am glad the scissortail is making a come back in this part of the state. They are beautiful birds.

I'm sorry, but It looks like an advertisement for a travel website. Do they seriously think, people are going to see it and think, wow nice license plate. I think I'm going to check out that Travel Oklahoma website. Using license plates for advertising space for the state is a really dumb idea, I think. I would be very surprised if even one person sees that license plate, and decides to visit Oklahoma because of it. So they are just mucking up the license plates with advertisement for nothing.

I also don't get this trend for putting the state shapes in the middle of license plates. It looks like they are ripping that off from the Texas license plates, and I wish Texas would just go back to putting the star between the numbers. I think most of us know the shapes of the states without seeing them on license plates.

I have to give it a thumbs down. If I saw that license plate for the first time, and hadn't read this thread, I would never relate it to being an Oklahoma plate. I live in an area where I see a lot of different license plates, and that one would look like just another boring generic plate, that I would have no idea where it was from.

Going back to an old license plate with OK! on it would be okay with me.



Putting state shapes on plates goes back decades.

I am thinking about ordering one, since the red color of the tag would look good with the copper red color of my car.

Good point. I actually looked at pictures of the old OK license plates before I posted that, but I didn't recognize that shape. Even in that picture it doesn't look like the shape of Oklahoma to me. I guess one good point for the new plate is that the Oklahoma shape is actually recognizable.

Loved the comments section in the article the OP posted.

Why is there a finger pointing at the bird's anus under "explore" Oklahoma? Stupid design and no thank you.
I think he was referring to the middle finger in the report. The Democrats will win in Oklahoma's state races in the next election barring a GOP-boogie man like Sharia Law. $5 increase in registration fee (tax increase) to fund this ugly plate? No thank you!

I still have the 2009 plate on my car. I thought I was going to replace it this year since plates are replaced every 7 years, but I just Googled it and it turns out that according to TxDMV.gov:

Quote:
As of November 1, 2016, the State of Texas will no longer automatically replace your plates after 7 years. However, you may still apply at your county tax office for replacement plates if the license plate needs to be replaced for cosmetic or readability reasons.
Looks like I'm going to keep my plates for a little while longer! The 2009 design was replaced with the current black-and-white minimalist 1960's-era look mostly due to efforts from Texas law enforcement unions forwarding their officer's complaints about legibility from a distance.

Around the same time, the Eurozone was hooting for austerity. This plate is austere and sent the message that austerity is coming to Texas. (But one could say that the '60s look is also back in thanks to the Mad Men AMC TV series. The style in men's suits has been unchanged for 5 years.)
