New Ga. license plate unveiled

ATLANTA — Gov. Nathan Deal has announced the winner of Georgia's license plate contest.

Linda Sosebee of Forsyth created the winning design, which features peaches in the foreground against a backdrop of green hills.

Revenue Commissioner Doug MacGinnitie says more than 500,000 ballots were cast.

The contest ran up against a bit of controversy earlier this summer after confusion arose over whether the motto "In God We Trust" would be on the new car tag.

The public was invited to re-vote on the top eight designs, which were narrowed from 500 entries submitted from across the state. State officials chose the winner from the top three vote-getters.

Georgia drivers can get the new plates next year. People have the option of adding the religious motto to the tag for an additional dollar.

I will never put this on my car! This tag is hideous. The peaches are over-sized and the rural background does not even look like GA. Why did anyone even vote for this plate?

Renewing tags every 10 years is just a way to get more money out of the tax payer.
