New York state DMV bungles 9/11 special license plate rollout

Drivers in 13 states have the option of choosing license plates that honor those killed in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, but New York motorists cannot do so.

A New York law went into effect in February that allows the Department of Motor Vehicles to design 9/11 license plates, but no plate has been designed due to a flaw in the law. The DMV can design the plates if 200 people request them; but no requests can be made until a design is chosen. The DMV says they need $6,000 to design the plates, but no money has been allocated reports Susan Edelman for the New York Post.

The $25.00 fee to purchase the special plates would go to a scholarship program.
