Colorful and Outrageous History of License Plates [Infographic]

Surprising, the history of license-plates began as hand-painted initials on a vehicle to identify its owner. Even more shocking is that motorized vehicles were considered “2nd class” to horse-and-rider until the early 1900’s when a law was passed giving them “equal rights”. Cars were even banned in some townships and considered “unnatural”. The rainbow of colors and history of the license plate system is equally surprising. Take a look at the unexpected early beginnings of automobiles and 50 years of license plates in the TitleMax® Discovery Center, “Planes, Trains and Automobiles“.
