I think I read something about a change in license plate technology a month or so ago but I saw my first "changed" plate today. At least in the state of Ohio, new plates are no longer metal but a plastic sheet with the numbers/letters printed on. Now rather than purchasing pre-stamped plates you go the othe DMV/BMV and they use a special printer to print the numbers/letters on the blank plate.
As always, I fear change and this is no exception. The new plates look goofy. The numbers are no longer raised from the surface but just written on a flat sheet. I like seeing a stamped plate rather than this cheap looking thing. I would hope that for special plates, like Collector and Historic plates you could still get a metal plate. They are good for life once you register the vehicle and I would rather have a nice metal plate on an old vehicle than a piece of plastic.
Any other states going to this type of plate? What are your thoughts on it?
