new plates available! (soon)

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/l...tory?track=rss


SPRINGFIELD — The state’s 350,000 motorcyclists now can pay homage to their favorite pro sports teams from Chicago thanks to a new law signed today.

Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White, a former minor league baseball player in the Cubs organization, will make the new plates available for North Side fans as well as White Sox fans on the South Side.

Bulls, Bears and Blackhawks plates also will be offered when pre-orders begin Aug. 24 at www.cyberdriveillinois.com.

Money from the sales is earmarked to support schools.

More than 18,000 sports team license plates have been sold to people driving cars, vans, pick-ups and other small trucks in less than two years, bringing in almost $800,000 for schools.

“I am proud to make these license plates available to motorcycle enthusiasts as a means of showing team spirit and further supporting education across the state,” White said in a statement.

Fans can get random-number plates for a motorcycle with a title and Illinois registration for $66. Fees vary for vanity and personalized plates.

White’s expansion of the sports-plate program was signed into law by Gov. Pat Quinn today.

I'm pretty sure any question formulated in plain English will trigger that type of response in the DMV. You cannot deviate from their script.

That's because the DMV guy only speaks Spanish.

Dante: [to Randal] You never go ass-to-mouth!
Randal: [to Dante] Would you grow up!
Becky: [to Dante] OK, I'm only telling you this because we're friends, but sometimes, in the heat of the moment, it's forgivable to go ass-to-mouth.
Randal: [chuckling] Ha! I knew it.
