New Arizona specialty plates available

Posted

Arizonans now have more options to show their support for charitable and other worthy causes with five new specialty license plates that debut Monday, Aug. 10.

Specialty plates are available online through ServiceArizona.com. Most cost $25 each year, with an additional $25 per year if the plate is personalized.

The plates making their first appearance today are:

Alzheimer’s Awareness: Available to everyone. $17 of the fee supports research to promote the scientific understanding and early detection of Alzheimer’s disease and to educate Arizona residents about disease management.

Distinguished Flying Cross: Must be a recipient of the Distinguished Flying Cross medal (proof required) with $17 of the fee going to a special fund to benefit veterans in Arizona.

Fiesta Bowl: Available to everyone with $17 of the fee supporting charities and programs across the state of Arizona designed to promote youth, sports and education. 

Habitat for Humanity: Available to everyone with $17 of the fee supporting Arizona families in need of decent, affordable housing.

Share the Road: Available to everyone with $17 of the fee going to both the Rob Dollar Foundation and the Uphill Into The Wind organization to promote road safety and awareness for cyclists and runners.

In addition to these new plates, the Arizona Historical Society, Northern Arizona University and Phoenix International Raceway plates sport new designs that have been available since July.

In the Fiscal Year that ended June 30, the total statewide sales of specialty plates netted a new record of about $11.4 million for various causes and charities, according to a release.

Specialty plates are authorized by the Arizona legislature and have been offered since 1989. Authorized plate designs complete a review by law enforcement and the Arizona Department of Transportation. In all, there are now 71 license plate options for Arizona motorists, according to the release.
