First License Plates

Sunday, April 26th. Many automobile license plates proclaim glories of the issuing states; others spell out something dear to the drivers but indecipherable to anyone else. Those plates and the more basic ones are requirements to drive on public roads. New York was the first state to require license plates on motor vehicles this month in 1901. At the time, there were just fewer than 15,000 sputtering automobiles in the entire country, traveling over muddy, rudimentary roads without a license for the driver or the automobile. Now, there are over 250 million cars, trucks, and buses in the nation, and all sporting license plates. Decorative frames for license plates are a niche product in America’s 37,000 auto parts and accessories stores, which generate $48 billion in annual sales.
