Public Service plates are issued on Taxis, buses, and on the front of semis. Initially, they started with the letters PS, but somewhere (well before 10000), they reverted to just the letter P. The P is still smaller than the numbers that follow it. The highest is about P11300.

Veteran

Report a new high History

From Andy: Veteran plates are the letters VET followed by a 3-digit number. I only saw VET001 and VET022. These plates stand out because they are red instead of blue. They are the only plates that are of a different color than the standard set.
