Special license plates; highway safety. Authorizes the issuance of special license plates for supporters of highway safety, including awareness of distracted driving. The bill exempts the plate from the requirement to obtain 450 prepaid applications prior to issuance and from the provision that prohibits issuance of additional plates in the series if, after five or more years after issuance, the plate has fewer than 200 active sets of plates. Additionally, the plate shall be subject only to a one-time fee of $10 at the time the plates are issued, in addition to the prescribed cost of state license plates. Read the Bill »
