I was browsing through a website showing the various license plates of U.S. states, and noticed that California's and Louisiana's plates were similar. They both have red cursive at the top of the plate, and use dark blue for the actual license plate number. Both plates also have a white background, lacking any sort of pictures or graphics. In addition, both plates were first issued around 1994 or 1995.

So, why did Louisiana make their plates so similar to California's?

No idea but those plates are becoming rather uncommon outside of company vehicles. (I never really liked them) The new plates have a graphic of a pelican or something on it in a warm sunrise type color pallet. That and the Super Bowl XLIV plates are most common now. (at least in my area)

You'd think they'd go with Virginia, I hear she hasn't been taken yet!

99.99% of California plates look like that, at least from what I've seen

^ It's pretty much true, unless you are from out of state, about 90% of the plates look like that.

Uhhhhhm...I can definitely see the similarity, but I don't guess I'm the only one who can see plenty of differences in them as well...

You mention both plates were issued around '94 or '95

Wheres your research that says Louisiana didn't issue theirs first?

But I'm in California and my car has 1980's plates. The "California" font is different.

Well I guess that wouldn't apply to a few of the older cars, it was just a guess though.
