July License Plate Report

2014 july license plate

Wisconsin, Wyoming, and Alaska are now on the map. Not bad, eh?

If past experience is any guide — and I’ve got more than 25 years of past experience at this point — the end-of-year map will look pretty much like this one. Not much happens in the second half of the year.

But 45 down, only 6 to go, isn’t bad at all.

Last Saturday the sky was overcast — lousy beach day on Martha’s Vineyard, hence a really bad day to be on the road. But I needed some stuff in Oak Bluffs. Off I went. And while I was waiting for a break in the traffic on Old County at the Edgartown Road, what to my wondering eyes should appear but ALASKA.

It made the whole trip worthwhile. No trouble finding a parking place either. It’s all good.

    That’s kind of amazing.. that you see an Alaska plate, and it’s one of your readers.

    I saw Texas in Edgartown! Now you’ve got ME looking.


    • Addictive, isn’t it?? What got me started was a colleague — in 1988! — asking a bunch of us what we thought were the hardest-to-spot plates on Martha’s Vineyard. Of course I had to find out for myself. Hah!
