New Georgia License Plates

We’ll be getting new license plates next spring. I’ve never been a huge fan of the current peach plates, but I have to admit my wildflower plate is kinda cute.

I like the look of the new plates. They look less kitschy, more timeless and, I dunno…official. They’ll also move the tag holder’s county name from the prominent position it holds now across the bottom of the plate, making it harder to tell OTPers from ITPers. Heh.

    I prefer the “Georgia …on my mind” plate over the current ugly ones

    I love my hummingbird plate. The new ones look way better than the current ones but I don’t know if I’m digging the flatness. Looks kinda cheapish. Hrm, I’ll wait until they come out to fully judge.

    I like the GA on my mind plates, personally, but more for the phrase than for the design. The wildflower plate IS cute. Not a big fan of the new one. Seems boring and without soul to me.

    It’s not that hard to tell if someone’s lost and/or doesn’t know the lane-wander in the prominent streets (ala North Ave when it crosses P-tree and W. P-tree.). That lane wander is all the info some of us need.

    there’s a lane wander on boulevard, too — but generally otp’ers are pretty lost if they’ve ended up there.

    The lane-wander on 10th as it crosses W. P’tree nobody seems to understand (O- or ITP), frustrating me every morning.

    Daniel – Take Ponce/Wp’tree/5th to GT – way less headaches in the AM..

    The lack of the county tags will end my non stop tracking of counties with the worst driver. Clayton is currently in the lead, followed closely by Gwinnett and Henry.

    Very bland and lacking in anything that speaks to me of the state that I have lived all my life. It looks like something from New England.

    I guess I can live without knowing the county, but it’s also boring. It’s like they are going out of their way to remove any concept of “place” from the new plates.

    What the fuck? Why do we have to change the goddamn plate every motherfucking year? I am sick and tired of buying a new damn plate every single time I renew my registration. Hopefully we can end this plain with the blue. A blue plate has been good enough for Michigan for the last 100 years, so it should be fine for us for the next 100. Christ.

    I wish I worked for the govt, then I would have one of the white plates – I’m not a fan of the blue plates, I think they’re gonna clash with a lot of cars.

    Though, anything is an improvement from my grey-gradient plate that just makes my car look like it’s dirty.

    I still prefer the original “Georgia on my mind” plates from a couple years ago. I don’t need to be a walking (driving?) advertisement for the state’s website.. don’t I pay them enough in taxes already?
