The new general issue features the State bird with a blue on white motif, and is becoming more common month by month. It is kind of bland, but clean. Thoughts?

I'm in Texas and when I first saw it, Oklahoma was like the LAST state I would have guessed! I can't really make out the design. The color scheme also is not one I would equate with Native America theme Oklahoma. Would have been better off making it in Sooner or OSU school colors.

Does OK have personalized plates for OU and OSU? Most States do for their major universities. I think that is a better way to go about it, as opposed to applying colors to the entire State.

I didn't think there was anything wrong with the old plate. It was distinct and somewhat iconic. Sort of like Texas' old plate with the starry sky, space shuttle, and the cowboy. That one was way more iconic than the one they have now.

States like to change out the license plates because its a quick revenue generator.

True, but increasing the price for a new plate will backfire in most States.

As for iconic plates, I tend to agree, but some States are trending back toward a basic design, as in Texas. This Texas plate is really nothing more than what was the standard issue in the 1960's and 70's, off and on. Black numerals on White. Pure and simple.

Oklahoma has used a green theme for decades, until the recent red scheme. Now to blue. Plus, they are using a "screened, or flat" version, which is less expensive to produce. Yet, they are increasing the fees.

Saw several new plates in the parking lot for a reunion in Durant Ok Saturday. I found them hard to figure out state or if it was a special plate of some kind. I found it confusing and not eye catching in a positive way.

I like New Mexico's latest license plate better. There is no busy background, so the numbers stand out better.
