I can see it now; an ad for Hooters right next to your license tab. Yep, Illinois is so hard up for money that it’s considering selling ads on state license plates.
The idea is to offer special corporate-sponsored plates. Drivers would get a discount on the price, and businesses would put their logos on the plates. It’s not a done deal though, the secretary of state is studying the pros and cons of corporate plates.
Texas already allows corporate plates. What do you think? A good way to bring in more revenue without raising taxes or too distracting to drivers?
