Finding—1997 c 291: "The legislature finds that the proliferation of special license plate series has decreased the ready identification of vehicles by law enforcement, and increased the amount of computer programming conducted by the department of licensing, thereby increasing costs. Furthermore, rarely has the actual demand for special license plates met the requesters' projections. Most importantly, special plates detract from the primary purpose of license plates, that of vehicle identification." [ 1997 c 291 § 1.]
Part headings not law—Effective date—1995 3rd sp.s. c 1: See notes following RCW 82.14.0485.
