New Jersey license plate numbers have become an Internet hit, with more than 3,000 different designs being created.
Now, the state is working to get the word out about the latest designs, with a campaign to get each plate onto the road.
The effort is a response to a complaint from a local pet owner who said the license plate he received from the state of New Jersey is too similar to a dog license plate, and he said the state shouldn’t have a dog plate on the roads of New England.
Chris Christie said the campaign was part of his ongoing efforts to create a state of nature and a new economic development zone for the state.
New Jersey was the first state to make a move toward dog license plates in 1999, but the design hasn’t been changed.
It will be up to local governments to decide which plates are acceptable.
“This is really about our communities.
This is about creating a place where the state cares about the people of New Hampshire and the communities in the state, and we’ve got a lot of folks who are really passionate about this,” Christie said.
The campaign says the most common state license numbers on New Jersey plates are the 3, 5, 7 and 11, but a number of other designs exist.
There are more than 4,000 license plates available for purchase.
The state hopes to get 10,000 more designs submitted to the website.
