License Tag Makeover

North Carolina is having a license tag makeover! A recently instituted program has been initiated and the oldest tags on the road are slowly being replaced with the new tags, which feature red letters rather than blue letters. Learn more here.

Most important to remember: “Owners will be encouraged to take their old plates to license plate agencies for recycling, keeping them out of landfills.” So don’t be lame and throw your old license plate in the trash!

Here are a few examples I’ve seen on the road recently:

Speaking of license plates, I’ve seen two watermelon license plates on the road since I got mine – have you seen any?

    Hmmm I wonder if they’re going to change the “weighted” plates too.

    Is that I-540 I see?

    If you saw the larger picture, you’d know it was a parking lot…on 540. 🙂

    The first one is Westbound, the second is Eastbound.
