PRETTIER PLATES
(2007-01-22)
(wgvu) - MANY MICHIGAN DRIVERS ARE CHOOSING TO PAY
FIVE DOLLARS TO GET A NEW GREEN, BLUE AND WHITE SPECTACULAR
PENINSULAS PLATE SHOWING THE MACKINAC BRIDGE, THE STATE'S OUTLINE
AND A CITY-AND-FOREST SKYLINE.
THEY CAN NO LONGER KEEP THEIR TRUSTY "OLD BLUE" LICENSE
PLATES. DRIVERS WHO WANT TO PAY NOTHING BESIDES THEIR REGULAR
VEHICLE REGISTRATION FEE CAN CHOOSE A WHITE PLATE WITH A BLUE STRIP
AT THE TOP IN WHICH THE WORD "MICHIGAN" APPEARS.
BUT AFTER YEARS OF USING THE OLD BLUE PLATE WITH WHITE
LETTERING, SOME DRIVERS APPARENTLY WANT MORE.
THE FIVE DOLLAR FEE FOR THE NEW PLATE IS CHARGED ONLY ONCE, SO
DRIVERS WON'T FACE ANY EXTRA FEES WHEN THEY GO TO RENEW THE PLATE
NEXT YEAR.
THE MAJORITY OF DRIVERS HAVE CHOSEN THE NEW WHITE PLATE.
