How New Jersey’s license plate ranks against other states

Well, for once the Garden State isn’t dragging in last place. In a poll that asks Americans to rate various state license plates, New Jersey ranked 39th — presumably because the plate does exactly what it was designed to do, be read easily.

The poll, conducted by Carinsurance.com, chose Wyoming as the favorite license plate. And it’s easy to see why: Wyoming features a silhouette of a cowboy atop a bucking horse, along with a mountain-ridged range. You can cast your vote and look at the worst and the best in state plates on the Carinsurance.com website.
