Sesquicentennial plates should be replaced


MADISON (WKOW) -- Drivers in Wisconsin with state sesquicentennial license plates should have them replaced if they are fading.

Wisconsin transportation officials believe there are about 185,000 still on the road.

The plates came out in 1998 when the state celebrated 150 years. There were 440,000 plates distributed from 1996 through 1998 to honor the state's anniversary.

Drivers with unreadable plates can request new non-personalized plates for free by visiting the DMV's Web site.

Drivers can also get personalized replacements at a charge of $15.
