Get your kicks: Arizona offers specialty license plate for Route 66
PHOENIX — Arizonans: Are you ready to get your kicks on Route 66? Transportation officials have begun offering drivers a historic Route 66 license plate, according to the Kingman Daily Miner.
The plate was available starting on Dec. 19 and costs $25, with $17 of each license plate benefiting historic preservation in the state.
Arizona Department of Transportation spokesman Steve Elliott said 160 Route 66 plates have been ordered so far.
Two other license plates were also released this month: a Grand Canyon University plate that will raise funds for academic scholarships and a Special Olympics plate that will support the organization’s sports, health and leadership programs.
This year marked the 90th anniversary of Route 66’s establishment.
