Hundreds of choices: Is it time for S.C. to ditch custom license plates?

SC DMV

(Updated at the bottom.)

If you drive in South Carolina you know that drivers can not only place a custom frame around their license plate, but they can opt for special "vanity" plates from the DMV.

Did you know those options total 370? And did you know that legislators are considering moving that maximum up to 700?

Well, it does and they are, and law enforcement officials are getting fed up and saying it's time to get back to license plate basics: Identifying cars.

I'll point you over to The State's report on situation; read it here.

What do you think? Do you have vanity plates, and if you aren't willing to part with them, why?

And this surely isn't the first time this issue has made the news.

Update October 14: The Island Packet has chimed in with a column saying It's time for the custom plates to go; read their post here.
