Voters choose "covered bridge" plate

Hoosiers apparently love their covered bridges. 

The Bureau of Motor Vehicles has announced that a license plate depicting a covered bridge has won the vote to replace the outgoing bicentennial plate.

The BMV says in a news release that 54 percent of the more than 330,000 people who took part in the month-long vote chose the design of a red bridge spanning a creek.

The “Hoosier State Silhouette” plate came in second, and the “Crossroads of America” plate finished a distant third.

The votes were cast through myBMV.com, at BMV self-service terminals across the state, and at the BMV booth at the Indiana State Fair.

The new covered bridge plate will begin appearing in January. It will join “In God We Trust” as one of two standard, no extra cost license plates.
