Washington Post: Fairfax County pride on a license plate? Maybe now residents will want it.

The Friends of Tibet have one. So do Harley-Davidson owners, fox-hunting enthusiasts and butterflies.

Even the cities of Fairfax and Virginia Beach have their own custom license plates.

So why doesn’t Fairfax County, Virginia’s most populous jurisdiction?

Because if the Department of Motor Vehicles is going to go to the trouble of printing a specialized plate, at least 350 people have to pay upfront. When the county tried the idea in 1999, it fell short: Fewer than 300 of its nearly 1 million residents were willing to cough up an extra $25 a year to show their civic pride.
