Lighthouse plates now allowed on pickups
If the Plum Beach Lighthouse has special meaning, you can now sport specialty license plates even if your primary vehicle is a pickup truck or commercial van.
Passed by the General Assembly and recently signed into law by Gov. Lincoln Chafee, the bill allows the specialty plates to be used on any kind of vehicle registered in the state, not just passenger cars. As with all specialty license plates, the sets can be ordered but will not be made available until the preorder total reaches 900.
