NYS unveils 14 new regional custom license plates
New York Drivers Can Now Represent Their Region with Custom License Plates
New York drivers can now show off their love for their region with custom license plates. The Department of Motor Vehicles in Albany has unveiled a new line of plates, each showcasing a different region of the state. The current plates feature attractions from across the state, but the new plates allow residents to represent their specific area.
The plates feature various scenes, including the Saratoga Racetrack, the New York State Fair in Syracuse, and a flock of roses, the state flower. The plate for New York City features a view of Lower Manhattan with the Statue of Liberty in the foreground. In addition to the regional plates, there are also plates available featuring logos of sports teams, fraternities and sororities, professional organizations, and military affiliations.
However, drivers should be aware that the state still will not allow vulgar vanity plates. Last year, over 1,800 requests for inappropriate plates were rejected, including options like BNGBUS, TOXXICAF, and PHATNUTS.

14 new regional custom license plates unveiled by NYS
The Department of Motor Vehicles in Albany has announced a new line of custom license plates for car owners in New York. The plates showcase 14 different regions of the state, offering residents an opportunity to represent their slice of the Empire State. Currently, the state’s license plates jam attractions from Niagara Falls to Montauk into one backdrop. However, with the new plates, individuals can choose a plate featuring their home region, such as views of New York City or the Saratoga Racetrack. The plates also feature logos representing residents’ favorite sports teams, fraternities and sororities, professional organizations, and military affiliations. It’s worth noting that the state still prohibits vulgar vanity plates, having rejected more than 1,800 off-color requests last year, including BNGBUS, TOXXICAF, and PHATNUTS.
