The law in Ontario requires a green plate to use hov lanes if you’re alone. Green vehicle isn’t enough cause I guess it’s just too hard for the police to determine which are green and which aren’t. That could have been one of those gas Teslas! Dumb but the reason I don’t have a vanity plate. You can’t get a vanity green plate in Ontario.
The delivery of my M3 LR RWD Red Aero is hopefully in the next week or two. I've never owned vanity plates before but want to get some just for the fun of it. I won't trot out any names yet, but I want it to match the plates to the same theme I"m using for naming the car.
I've checked the Ontario govt website and it states "personalized Green Vehicle licence plates are not available" thus I'd have to get regular white background blue lettering plates. I'm okay with that and I live in Ottawa so don't really care about the High Occupancy Lane benefits that have a green plate would entitle me to.
Are there any other disadvantages to not having a green plate, or perhaps even advantages to having a regular plate (won't attract EV haters?). Has anyone else got a neat vanity plate for their Tesla in Ontario?
