Agency Promotes Lake Erie Plates to 'Green' folks

What's on your car tag?

The Ohio Lake Erie Commission hopes you have a picture of a lighthouse on it.

Last week, Chris Riddle, environmental specialist for the Ohio Lake Erie Commission, spoke at a luncheon for the Firelands Coastal Tributaries Watershed program. Riddle asked how many of several dozen "green" people in the audience had the special Lake Erie plates. Only a couple of people raised their hands.

Riddle explained that people who buy the special Lake Erie tags are putting money in a fund to help preserve the lake. The commission's Web site, lakeerie.ohio.gov, has details on the plate and says the money supports boosting the lake's fish population, cleaning up rivers and harbors, improving public access and other worthy causes.

The special plate shows a lighthouse from Toledo. Plates with the Marblehead Lighthouse are no longer available, the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles says.
