NEW VANITY PLATES
New Texas vanity plates get an extra letter
DALLAS (AP) - Beginning this week, Texans have a little more
leeway to get personal with their license plate.
Vanity plates may now contain seven characters, rather than the
traditional six. The only catch: the first letter must be a "T."
The so-called T plate gives drivers a second chance to nab names
and words claimed long ago by other drivers.
Kim Miller Drummond, a spokeswoman for My Plates, the company
selling the plates for the Department of Motor Vehicles, said 43
were sold on Monday, the first day they were offered. Among them
were T GOLDEN, T RANCHR and T MIZZOU.
But plates bearing an extra character won't come cheap. Expect
to pay $95 a year, or as much as $495 for 10 years if you want to
keep the plate that long.
