NJ Flat License Plates
Flat License Plates in NJ – it’s all about the capture!
Money, Money, Mon-ey, MONEY!
Hey, I don’t really care what the “official” explanation is. But I can think of some reasons why they’d change something that was working perfectly fine: MONEY and CONTROL.
They might say these new flat license plates will “last longer,” but they really don’t give a crap about that. They care if the EZPass cameras, red light cameras, HPU cameras and other photographic invasions of privacy can capture the tags clearly.
My guess is that because of the embossed nature of the old plates, photos may not have always come out sufficiently, resulting in blurry images that didn’t translate properly into the fines they can
steal collect from you.
Regardless of what kind of plates you are forced to use, I still think it’s ridiculously unnecessary to track vehicles like this. What next? Bar codes on every human being?
