Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles reported to Historic City News that, after three weeks of online voting, the design for the new Florida license plate with the solid green bars and the artistic orange, forming the ‘O” in the word Florida, has been chosen as “the most popular”.
A committee of more than 20 stakeholders, including state agency personnel, law enforcement, tax collectors and affiliated associations participated in the development of the final license plate designs.
“50,124 votes were cast in the online contest which represents one part of the process to select the new plate design,” according to a DHSMV announcement. “Before the design is manufactured, the public’s vote will be factored in with input from the Governor, Cabinet and policy makers.”
The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles needs to upgrade the basic Florida plate to a design that increases readability and features a seven-character configuration.
