Plate-breakers

November 11, 2010 

In response to the Nov. 10 front-page article on special license plates, I am a driver who has a State Parks license plate. I choose to support my interest in a small way. If this increases interest in or money to that organization I am glad.

Why should I care if my plate cannot be read clearly so I can be ticketed [by a camera] or if the Turnpike Authority has to hire one extra person to review the photos manually for toll cameras? It seems the benefits to groups that sponsor speciality plates should outweigh the state's need to grab for money. Stay away from my plate, DMV!
