Problems With New Michigan License Plates

By  | 

There's something a little screwy with some of the state's new license plates.

Michigan's white-on-blue license plates are being replaced with blue-on-white plates meant to be easier to make and easier to see at night.

But a faulty die used to cut the plates and stamp the holes has made it so two of the holes on some of the new plates don't line up with the mounting holes in vehicles.

Officials at the Parr Highway Correctional Facility in Adrian, where Michigan's plates are made, have since corrected the mistake.

A spokesman for the Michigan Secretary of State's office says there's no need for customers to panic; two holes can be used to mount the plate to the vehicle.
