Vote Now On New RI License Plate

You can vote for bland, bland, bland, bland or bland

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 began 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.
