Group Tabs Mackinac Bridge License Plate As Best In World

Posted: Updated:

(WLNS) - Michigan's colorful Mackinac Bridge license plate has been selected as the world's best new design.

The Automobile License Plate Collector's Association honored the plate after a worldwide search of the year's new designs.

ALPCA members worldwide were asked to nominate and then vote on the best new plates based in part on the overall attractiveness of the license plate design. "I knew it had an excellent chance of winning the moment I first saw it," said Gus Oliver, ALPCA's Best Plate Award Coordinator.

"We're delighted that ALPCA has honored Michigan with its plate of the year award," Secretary of State Ruth Johnson said.

First issued last August, the beautiful plate features the bridge against a sunrise sky.  Since the plate debuted more than 112,000 have been issued.

This is the second time a Michigan plate has been honored.  In 1976, the state's red, white and blue bicentennial plate earned best new plate honors.
