Ontario Proposes Green licence Plates For Low-Emission Vehicles
By this time next year, Ontarians who buy environmentally friendly, low-emission cars and trucks would get a green-hued licence plate that entitles them to such possible perks as free parking and access to carpool lanes, The Star reports.
The so-called “eco-licence” plate is one of three green transportation policies the province is hoping will encourage commuters and businesses to factor the environment into their spending decisions. The government will consult with vehicle manufacturers and environmental groups to design a rating system that identifies the cleanest cars, light trucks and commercial vehicles.
At the same time, at least three U.S. states are considering green plates for convicted sex offenders and pedophiles back on the streets, The StarÂ reports inÂ another article.
