Texas College Plates Stir Controversy

DALLAS, Dec. 28 (UPI) — Some Texans are complaining about the growing number of out-of-state colleges and universities being represented on the state’s license plates.

A franchise agreement with My Plates made a few years ago to aggressively market specialized license plates has resulted in nearly 30 different out-of-state schools having license plates offered in Texas at a price of $55 per year or $295 for a 10-year plate, and the objects have resulted in some strong opinions being posted to the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles Web site, the San Antonio Express-News reported Wednesday.

“To have anything other than a Texas team or school is just plane wrong and you as legislatures and members of the department of transportation should be tarred and feathered,” one Texan wrote. “If for no other reason than putting out an O.U. (Oklahoma University) plate you should be ashamed.”

Another poster said, “It is beyond me why we would want to allow out-of-state colleges to display on Texas License plates. Where is our state pride?”
