New York state recalls new license plates after manufacturing issue

Local News

ALBANY, N.Y. (WROC) — Some of New York’s new “excelsior” license plates have been recalled because of a manufacturing issue, according to a DMV spokesperson.

The plates, which “were too reflective” were not issued to drivers but were inadvertently shipped to counties.

The new plates are part of the state’s effort to implement cashless tolling statewide by the end of 2020.

Last summer, a statewide contest was announced to determine the new design for the license plates, and the winning design was ultimately announced in early September.
