Vote Now On New License Plate

One of these will be on your car eventually. I’m finding it hard to pick a favorite. At any rate, the Rhode Island Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has launched its “RI State Plate Design Contest” and now you get to choose. One thought: License plates are primarily for the use of the police (and speed traps) and they must be clearly legible and easily differentiated from other license plates on the road . . . for instance, our own outgoing plates. From a distance, the one in the lower left hand corner might look a bit too much like the outgoing plate.

The winning plate will become the new state-issued plate design, replacing the current “Blue Wave” design, which has been in circulation since 1996.

Voting period begins Monday, March 14, and ends March 28, 2022 at 11:59 pm.

This should not have been a popular contest. (I shared my thoughts on this in February.) The DMV has refused to release all 900+ submissions, but will after the winner has been chosen. (They have to.) I kind of look forward to seeing just how bad this got.
