My friend, Angie, figured this out and posted it on Facebook:

1) Oklahoma's new license plate



+

2) Google result #10 for "Scissor Tail Flycatcher"



=

3) New License Plate!

Now, obviously, it could be coincidence at that's what the bird looks like in flight. But it sure it a remarkable comparison.

The tail feathers are what sealed the deal for me.

Good grief...

We probably paid several hundred thousand for a search committee, various designs, etc...then at the last minute someone does an "oh smile we need a design and I've pissed away all the money on eyeliner, peroxide for my hair and new tires for the RV. Come on Google don't let me down."

That's how we roll in this state - starting with the establishment of settlements here at Land Run time, through the theft of the capital from one town to another....Did Mary Failin' have any say in this?  Or was it just one of her appointed minions?  Just curious...


Not a horrible design - I love the Scissortail Flycatchers!

The last design was to make Oklahoma plates machine-readable in an attempt to jump on the automated-enforcement bandwagon.
That, and the 3M decal process was much cheaper than embossed steel plates.

The handout:

“The new design will act as a travelling billboard for those looking to experience and explore our beautiful state,” said Fallin. “Just as important, the new plates are more clearly visible at night and will aid our law enforcement officers as they work to keep us safe.”

Oklahoma’s previous plates — which were more than seven years old — were past warranty and beginning to deteriorate, dulling the reflective sheeting on them and making them more difficult to see at night.

The Oklahoma Safety Council and the Oklahoma City Fraternal Order of Police had spoken out during this year’s legislative session about the importance of more visible license plates, which are used by law enforcement officers to locate suspected felons and respond to Amber and Silver Alerts.

State officials also spoke about the importance of the new license plates in increasing compliance with insurance and registration laws. All drivers must acquire a new plate by the end of 2017 and show proof of both insurance and vehicle registration.

Oklahoma Tax Commissioner Dawn Cash said the state would also gain from increasing registration compliance.

“The Tax Commission estimates that the state is owed approximately $4 million from thousands of Oklahomans who are out of compliance and failed to pay their registration fees last year,” Cash said. “Not only is that unfair to the Oklahomans who are following the law and registering their vehicles, it also significantly diminishes revenue going to public schools, local governments and other priority needs. New license plates will help us reduce non-compliance and enforce the rules of the road.”

New plates were authorized by House Bill 3208, authored by Rep. Earl Sears and Sen. Clark Jolley.

So basically, our last license plates were cheap and are worn out now, government needs to be able to track us better, and they need to raise revenue. So time for new plates!

I wonder how much the "visibility" argument is really about visibility to electronic devices scanning vehicles?
