February License Plate Report

2013 feb license plateAn under-average January generally gives way to an above-average February, and that was the case for 2013. The typical January tally is over 25. This year’s was 23. The usual February take is 3. This year I spotted 6: Indiana, Virginia, Nevada, Maryland, Utah, and Minnesota. Virginia and Maryland usually show up in January. This year they, or I, was a little late.

    I keep track of cars I see in NJ with Vineyard stickers … not as many as you see Jersey cars on MV 🙂

    Inspired, I kept a tally in Asheville. To my surprise, I spotted all but 6: Alaska, Kansas, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Utah, and Wyoming. Also garnered Quebec and Ontario.


    • It’s amazing how people get around, isn’t it? Quebec and Ontario are pretty common on MV too. The rest of the Canadian provinces are rare. I’ve seen a few Nova Scotias over the years, and one or two Newfoundland/Labradors, a Manitoba, and an Alberta, but that’s pretty much it.
