When it comes to catchy license plate slogans, California‚Äôs plate is empty. It‚Äôs devoid of any crumb of creativity, boosterism or even buffoonery. The state‚Äôs car plates have no cool colors, no catchy slogans, no boasting, no bragging, no nothing. Just the word ‚ÄúCalifornia‚ÄĚ and the DMV website. That bland combo can‚Äôt compete with, say, New Mexico‚Äôs bright yellow, art-accented ‚ÄúLand of Enchantment.‚ÄĚ Or even the totally bogus boast, ‚ÄúSki Utah,‚ÄĚ from a state with a mere sliver of mountains.
