State Scraps License Plate Plan

Feb 8, 2013

The state is scrapping plans to require Ohioans to replace their vehicle license plates every seven years and replace the gold-lined and bicentennial red,white and blue plates.

The budget request from the Ohio Department of Public Safety was not included in the Governor's two year state budget proposal. The department's plan was a revenue generator and also an attempt to address concerns by law enforcement agencies about the difficulty of reading rusted and faded letters and numbers.
