Arizona bill targets hard-to-read license plates
Web Producer: Taylor Higgins
PHOENIX (AP) - A bill moving through the Arizona Legislature seeks to minimize the clutter on future Arizona specialty license plates.
Law enforcement personnel say they can't see the numbers on many of the 33 specialty plates currently on the road because of the designs and sports logos.
Instead of allowing the entire plate to be designed by a specialty sponsor, Senate Bill 1206 would require a standardized plate with a 3-inch-square area dedicated to showcasing the group's design and logo.
The bill's sponsor is Democratic Sen. Steve Farley of Tucson.
He tells The Arizona Republic the proposal would give law enforcement a clearer view of plate numbers.
The bill has already won state Senate approval and its next stop is a full vote of the Arizona House.
