Loren pointed out that the Blue Plate Special was just a trial balloon.
I have a suggestion. Keep them. But reverse them.
The white one is very minimalist and cool looking — it’s the the iPod of license plates, gets the job done with a minimum of pretension. Let the blue light specials that the State Troopers drive have the Blue Plate special license plates. They wear blue and drive blue, they might as well have blue license plates — oh, and that will stop everyone from slamming on their brakes going down I-75 when they see some horses’ behind in a Crown Vic pretending to be a policeman — no blue tag, no policeman.
It’ll make it easy to identify. It’s a good idea. It’ll cut out the police poseurs.
So, keep the blue plates and the white plates. Just let us ordinary folks have the slick, minimalist white tags (perhaps with the county put back in) and let the official folks have the blue tags. Then we can all go away happy.
Thanks very much.
PS – You know how Peach Pundit made such a stink of this? Well, I’m a little hacked off that in an entire AJC article about bloggers’ reactions to the plate, Peach Pundit was mentioned ZERO times. Jim, I’m hurt.
