Those are peaches? It looks like someone's thumbs as they are holding the plate. Maybe that's just because the photo was so small. Probably they would look more peach-like in full size. I like the rolling fields.

Simply having a Georgia license plate wasn't enough already?
I jest, because (hearsay, not cited) Georgia seems to have about a 60/40 female-to-male population, and yet none of my friends in Atlanta can find a mate. Except the female friends. They can get laid like bricks.

I was thinking lumpy torsos instead of thumbs.

Wow, eight characters. Thinking of something offensive that might slip past the bureaucracy is hard to do with the six characters my state uses on their plates. I could even slide my handle onto a GA plate. Still not worth moving to Georgia though.

Why would anyone get customized plates? That's like getting your driver's license photo taken sober.

It is the land of 'the walking dead'...so torsos seems approriate.

Here were all of the options put to the public vote. The chosen one wasn't the worst but definitely wasn't the best. Bleh.

www.marietta.com

They also had to have a do-over on the voting last year because in the layout of the license plates on the voting form 3 of the 8 had "In God We Trust" where the county name typically goes. Guess which plates got the vast majority of the votes in Georgia? It sure wasn't those heathen plates with the county printed on them. The second voting removed both the county names and the "In God We Trust" nonsense. Yay separation of Church and State.

Bonus: In Georgia you can now buy an "In God We Trust" sticker at the Tag Office for $1 if you'd rather have Jesus as your co-pilot instead of the traditionally listed county.

Fortunately the A55 RGY guy lives in Florida, so the redesign of the Georgia plates won't affect him.

At least they got a design. When I was a teenager Florida had a big contest to redesign their plates--advertising, prize money, the whole bit. After all this ado, they end up changing the plate by...inverting the colors but otherwise keeping the plate exactly the same.

Kind of surprised they have the tag sticker in the bottom right, I thought the top right was considered standard...

At least one article says the "IGWT" sticker is now $0. Still, Georgia was not the first. I think Indiana plates were the first ones I noticed with that on them.

I'd tend to agree with you for most cars, although for some reason I'm ok with it on stuff like hot rods and old muscle cars and other stuff that could conceivably end up at some kind of show. I'd feel like a knob gobbler for driving a bmw with a "B33M3R" plate, but would be ok rocking some old muscle with "68 CHGR".

There is a Carlin routine about plates with the county names on them.

Of course, he never realized that was for the benefit of the tax collector.

I have Trout Unlimited plates. I don't like the county tagged plates. I was once pulled over in Johns Creek by a cop who went up a row of cars in traffic until he found the one with out-of-county plates (me with Dekalb plates). Then he started with this line of questioning about what I was doing up there (work). I felt like saying "I'm up here to sell drugs to your children."

Not the tax collector, law enforcement so they can tell where the cars live. In some rural counties drive a black luxury SUV with a metro Atlanta plate you will be pulled over and searched. I've been paying extra for the wildlife tag for years so I did not have to have a county sticker.

Rule #1 of graphic design - just because you can doesn't mean you should. This should apply to any state redesigning their plates. I miss the simplicity and color scheme of the older, stamped plates that used to be the norm.

I can't agree with this any more. I want to meet one of these idiots and ask them what the thought process is there. How many times do you want to pay a premium for your car to say the same thing. Could I start a service for these egomaniacs where I would ride around with them, lean out the window and yell "Hey everyone, this is a BMW!"

What a farking waste of my money. All I want is a simple, cheap plate to show my vehicle is registered. I don't need nor to I want a marketing statement. As for the "I God We Trust", that is 100% voluntary. The slogan is not intended to be religious in nature, since it is one of the US's official slogans. The others (from the Great Seal) are E pluribus unum, Annuit cœptis and Novus ordo seclorum.

Does the USA avoid the common sense EU method of using cradle-to-grave plates to churn income or is there a legitimate reason?

In NJ we once went through a 10-15 yr period where some upstanding citizens were at the helm of the DMV. They changed the license plate a few times along with equipping the bureaus with photo and other machinery quickly found to be insufficient for its purpose. Nothing like screwing workers and businesses on the necessary evils in their lives.

Dammit all to hell I am sick of the Georgia = peach idiom. Not every part of GA is covered with peach trees, and in some places (like where I live) the trees almost never bear fruit because they get frostbit 3 years out of 4. GA has other crops you know - corn, cotton, peanuts, apples, melons. Give one of those a chance, or maybe, I dunno, the state bird (brown thrasher) or flower (Cherokee rose). Heck, our state doesn't even have the (in)famous peach water tower that from the interstate looks like a giant ass - that's over in Gaffney, SC (though rumor has it that since it got repainted, it's less ass-like/ Sad.)

At least you don't get the God sticker by default and have to pay to NOT get it, as was proposed at one point.
