From the Director: Making transportation personal, one specialty plate at a time

cra

By John Halikowski / ADOT Director

Who would have imagined offering specialty license plates by the Arizona Department of Transportation’s Motor Vehicle Division would bring more than $10 million in sales? That effort means causes like cancer research, veterans’ services, families of first responders, historic preservation, college scholarships, sports teams’ foundations – to name just a few – have another line of financial support coming their way. I would say that is “making transportation personal, one specialty plate at a time.”

The specialty plate program was established by state law in 1989 and plates are authorized by the Arizona legislature. The plates cost $25. Of that amount, $17 is committed to the benefiting organization that is sponsoring the plate. Specialty plates are available online and at MVD or Authorized Third Party offices. More information can be found at ServiceArizona.com or azdot.gov/mvd.

I am grateful for the generous support the people of Arizona have shown toward our specialty plate program. Transportation does touch lives in so many ways.  That’s why I believe transportation is personal.
