Euro Style USA themed license plates. These European-style plaques show each of the 50 state flags as well as the two-letter designation for each state. These plates are designed to be identical to the EEC registration plates of the countries of the European Union. First of all, with regard to the recognition of symbols, registration plates in European format are much more legible because they contain larger characters. In comparison, the letters and numbers on American plates, in addition to being too thin in almost every state, consume just over 50% of the vertical surface of the plate, so much of the plate surface is wasted. From a readability standpoint, despite the fact that American plates are higher, the fonts are actually shorter and narrower. On the other hand, the plates of the European Union use a thicker font and the characters consume most of the vertical and horizontal surface of the plate – less space is wasted. Third, when designing the front aprons, a number of automakers seem to have forgotten to accommodate an American-style front panel, which means that in many U.S. states, a license plate must be placed in the grille itself. A European-style plate creates a little less visual dissonance when it needs to be placed inside the grille. Ideally, we should switch to a vinyl sticker option, as in the UK, where license plates can be returned as vinyl glue and placed on almost any front surface to remain legible for automatic license plate reader systems. Second, European-size plates allow more characters to fit horizontally, ensuring that a plate format can be used for decades, even in the most populous state. California, for example, uses seven characters, but modern German license plates currently have eight and still have an empty ninth place, occupied by two city and tax stickers and a blue country ribbon on the left.

Digital plates – which are coming soon to a Tesla tech brother near you – have many advantages, such as costing more, weighing more and being more fragile than a traditional drive, but somehow they don`t allow you to give short «compliments» to others in traffic in response to their driving skills via a phone app with voice recognition.
