Why not have a car license plate that captures the essence of Arizona MTB? And make 25-35% of the plate sales go to a fund to help improve or build the trails? I know Idaho just did it.

I just saw on the news last night that the Tea Party is going to have a plate here in AZ.
Wanna say that it costs about $30,000 for the DMV to begin with the process.
Sorry to be a downer:mad:

That would be super cool, my idea was a state parks plate and with that plate you were covered for all the park passes in the state.

IL has dozens of decorative license plates that cost more than regular $98 annual plates, the excess of which goes toward a certain fund or charity.

however in AZ dont you pay a vehicle registration tax based on the current value of your vehichle? or is there a separate charge for the actual plate?
12 years ago when i had truck plates (and was into final fantasy), i had CHOCOBO vanity plates.

The problem is once the state gets the money, there is no guarantee they will use it as intended. We now have to pay $25 a year to register our offroad motorcycles with the intention/promise of using the money to improve riding areas, but as far as I know, they are now using the money for "general fund".

That's the ticket!
But AZ needs copper & guns on the plate, maybe a prospector, a Gila Monster, and a rattler too!

A mountain biker on a copper painted FS in crusty prospector attire with an old Colt on his hip, X'd up stylin' off a jump over a Gila Monster and a Diamondback rattler!
Yeah! that's the ticket. lol
:D

I believe that a certain amount ($17 out of the $25) actually goes to the the organization the plate represents.

Unlike the offroad one that just goes to the government.

Yes, you're right. But, I'm pretty sure that if you give anyone your $25, you will get back less than $1 in action.
