License plates are one of the most telling things about a car. Apart from the type of car, the year and the color, the license plate tells other drivers a lot about you, especially as it usually lies in their field of vision. It can tell you where you came from or where you used to live, how attached you are to your vehicle and even how creative you are. Every state has its "thing", the design or attribute for their plates, so that other drivers recognize them. It can be a historical monument or a popular dish in a state.
