This Day In History: 1944-03-01
This was the first day that the new license plate could be displayed on your car. They were not required until April 1st. The single plate, which was straw colored, with black letters, was to be fixed to the rear of the car. Motorists who wished to retain the same number they had before were urged to apply early. By keeping the same number, R. V. Ackerman, the local Motor Vehicle agent stated, the car owner would not have to have the number on his gas ration card or on his tire inspection certificate changed.
