In California allowed to use digital car numbersJanuary 17, 2018
The company Reviver Auto, the creator of the first digital registration plate, was authorized to use it from the authorities of the State of California. The pilot project will also be launched in Arizona.
The digital panel called RPlate Pro, presented at the Detroit Motor Show, except for the alphanumeric code, can display personal messages approved by the Department of Motor Vehicle Registration. RPlate Pro is configured through the web interface.
Among the additional features – automatic renewal of registration of the vehicle, display of advertising messages, information about payment of parking, the availability of insurance and violations.
It is expected that within a year in California will be about 100 thousand cars with digital panels. In this case, the owner has the right to choose between it and the usual registration sign.
A bill proposing the use of electronic license plates on cars was proposed by Democratic senator Carren Price in 2010. It was assumed that the usual combination of letters and numbers will be displayed only while driving. When the car stops at a traffic light or in a traffic jam on a sign, according to the idea of the author of the idea, advertising should appear.
