September 2013 marks the 10th Anniversary of the Registry of Motor Vehicles Special Plate program.
In 2003, Massachusetts General Law Chapter 90, Section 2F was passed and established an opportunity for charitable organizations to raise funds through a dedicated license plate.
It is a popular program with almost 20 different Special Plates on the road and continuing interest from other organizations. In recognition of the anniversary, we will be sharing the story of some of the plates on the MassDOT blog over the next two weeks.
Many of the various charitable organizations will join us at the Big E in West Springfield to celebrate 10 years on Massachusetts Day, September 19.
To sign up for a special license plate today, please visit www.MassRMV.com

United We Stand plates commemorate the loss of life from the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001. We continue to unite and combat issues of terrorism in a unified common goal while never forgetting what happened on 9/11. The revenue generated from these plates is invaluable to the continuing support of this mission. We will never forget!
