I think everyones plates should show their phone number.
*ring ring*
"Hello?"
"Hey Lady, get out of my way!"

While in Korea where there are no places to park, apartments, homes, stores all go straight up because there's no land to build on. Even Walmarts are 3 story.
So you park near your home, where you can find space, and you leave a note in your window with your phone number. If the people you parked behind need to get their vehicle out, they call that number you left and you come out and move your car so they can get out, then you move your car into the space they were parked in - and the cycle repeats.
Simple - park where you may end up blocking someone - leave a note in your car with your phone number.
I asked my son what's up with all of the signs in cars with phone numbers - every car I see for sale??
Nope, look how people have to park - it's a given you will be blocking someone, or will get blocked in. Simply call. No one gets upset or angry, it's life and they accept it.

So - you'll see cars everywhere with phone numbers posted in the window. Anger just isn't a thing there.

If you have a super high end build or always some beer in the bed and parked on the street the plate will help identify your truck as the truck from the forum with the high end beers.

I'll add beer to the grocery list then.......... but I don't park outside. However, if the door is open, feel free to stop by.

I've never worried about my license plate in pictures. It is exposed to thousands of people and cameras whenever it's on the road. I have avoided vanity plates because they are easy to recognize and remember (and cost more). Most people won't remember a license plate number for more than a few minutes without an effort, but a vanity plate will stick with them for quite a while.

I got behind someone this morning who had the plate # two places after my sequentially.

I have always wondered if they're issued in order like that. I didn't want to follow her around, but I really wanted to ask when she got it.

Have you ever wondered noticed people with vanity plates are proud to show their plate identification online while most non vanity plate owners cover them up for online pics?
No, not ever.

I would get a vanity plate, but my libertarian principles keep me from giving the state anymore of my hard earned dollars than I already do.
In my state, the charge for the plate can be allocated to various causes you might support anyway. 100% of my fee goes to the AZ Science Center, which is a place I donate to and visit anyway.

They are. We registered two motorcycles at the same time, and got two sequential plates for them.
Yes, I've watched 'em pull the new plates out of a box - and they are indeed in order.

When ordering for mail delivery in CA they are sequenced as entered into the system. When my wife and I went to AAA in SoCal to order the “1960’s series plates” (nearly black w/yellow type - very cool looking) for our 2 cars and a motorcycle I asked the agent behind the counter if they could be sequential. She smiled and replied: “If I can enter it fast enough!” Which she managed to do. Two weeks later they arrived in the mail. The car plates were indeed sequential and the motorcycle plate used the same numbers & letters as the cars, but in a different combination/order. Only once did an eagle eyed neighbor notice the three plates. Sure made it easy to remember the plates though.
