Vanity Plates Get Flashier

It's the thing that may make you laugh when you're stuck in rush hour traffic. Now, personalized license plates are getting even flashier.

She's a hot, harley-ridin' lady.

"I love the purple. I love how it rides for a woman, the Heritage Springer rides really well." 

On the roads, Jennifer Rice turns heads, but it's about more than just sheer beauty.

"I'm surprised they had 00hog first of all."

Her personalized license plate is on "the most wanted list", as far as vanity plates go. She went online. Tx-DOT is now allowing colorful custom plates that benefit the state's general revenue fund. You design it, and ride with pride.

"It's totally legal," said Betsy Price, the Tarrant County Tax Assessor-Collector. She says DFW folks have been the most receptive and creative, but there are boundaries. "You cannot have off-color. The closest thing they've come to off-color is a plate that says "topless" and it happens to be on a Mercedes convertible." 

Rice is a hog-lover, and has long been the envy for her smooth ride. Now she's got a plate, Harley buffs would kill for. 

The plates start at $90 and go up to $900. To find out more, (click here).
