California State Parks (State Parks) has unveiled its specialized vehicle license plate "ParksPLATE”.

The design of the plate features California’s official tree, the California redwood. Proceeds from the sale and annual renewal of the plate will provide an ongoing funding source for the restoration and preservation of state parks across California.

State Parks officials unveiled the specialized plate at Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park where some of the most extensive restorations since a major reconstruction effort in the 1890s are currently underway. Plate sales will support restoration projects like this one and help the department restore and preserve California’s state park system.

Traffic Amnesty Program Offers Hope to Thousands of Californians

Long seen as a rite of passage for teenagers, a driver’s license represents far more than that to most Californians.  A valid driver’s license is a vital link to employment, independence and long-term individual and family stability.  For those with unpaid traffic and non-traffic infraction tickets, however, insurmountable court fines have led to the loss of the privilege to drive, leaving little realistic hope of ever climbing out of the abyss.
