March License Plate Report

2015 march license map

Added in March: Kentucky, Ohio, and New Mexico. (Jeez, I just had a moment of panic: Did I color in Arizona instead of New Mexico? Whew, no: I got it right. Can you tell I’m a New England girl?)

New Mexico was a late arrival last year. A couple of weeks ago I went to the Martha’s Vineyard Film Festival at the Chilmark Community Center and there it was in the parking lot. Not bad.

  1. Great beginning. Is it already the start of the season for you, up there?


    • Not quite, though there are more people on the roads than there were a month ago. March and April are for getting ready. People paint, fix up, or at least thoroughly clean their shops and summer homes and rental properties. Businesses hire summer employees. Those in winter rentals and those who rent out their homes in the summer get ready to move. Some seasonal restaurants reopen in April. By Memorial Day at the end of May they’re nearly all open. Things don’t get really crazy till the end of June when school gets out. Which is why our standard advice to visitors is “Come in May or June, or September or October. Everything’s open, the weather is good, and you don’t spend all your time in traffic jams.”

    Well, they are arriving – on Monday a NY car raced past me near the Polly Hill Arboretum – I haven’t been passed since the end of last summer. They turned onto North Road in North Tisbury – what’s to hurry to on North Road?????
