Frankly I think there are too many special license plates and they are getting too political and controversial. If this would reduce the number then that's good. If they want to make a statement, let them buy a bumper sticker.

I'm with Robert—this seems like a good and necessary change, in that it's a step in the right direction. It strikes me as unlikely that it will pass, though the (eventual) impact statement may help.

Samantha Gallagher writes:

What's the harm in having a wide variety of special plates? I don't see why having a lot of them a bad thing. They're a great way to raise awareness or show your support of a cause while keeping your car clean and not having stickers all over it.
