Share The Road License Plate

by Randy Policar

NC PLATE

Bicycle enthusiasts across North Carolina can now show their support for bicycle and highway safety by purchasing a new specialized license plate. The plate, which features the “Share the Road” traffic sign, was recently approved by the General Assembly. The cost of the plates is $50, with $20 going to the NCDOT Division of Bicycle and Pedestrian Transportation (DBPT) for bicycle education and safety initiatives.

  1. What a great idea. California should follow suit… then everyone in OC (and LA. for that matter) can get them!

    How confident are you that that’s really where the money goes? Are you sure the DBPT’s budget isn’t cut by an equal amount which is then given to general revenue?

    Todd, you’re looking into the political side of this. When you pay taxes do you really know what the government does with it? One things for sure, when you go to the North Carolina Department Of Transportation you could purchase a new specialized license plate that features the share the road traffic sign.

    Sure, okay. In Mass, the money from specialized plates go into a separate account that can’t be seized or redirected, so there’s some degree of confidence that the money goes where it’s supposed to. In Florida, that’s not the case. If they had a “Share the road” plate, there’s nothing to stop the money from going into an “Elect Kathleen Harris” fund.
