SECTION 31-3-28

   § 31-3-28  Rules and regulations as to

plates. –

(a) The administrator of the division of motor vehicles is authorized and

empowered to make, alter, or amend, such rules and regulations that he or she

may deem necessary, pertaining to the use, size, design, color scheme, and the

material to be used in the manufacture of the number plates to be displayed on

automobiles, motor trucks, trailers, semi-trailers, or other motor vehicles,

except that at the next general issuance and each subsequent issuance. To

promote safety and to facilitate the identification of registration plate

letters and numerals at night, the department of revenue shall require that all

registration plates shall be treated with special materials so as to make the

background fully reflective and the letters and numerals on them readable at

night for a minimum distance of one hundred feet (100') with other

illumination. An additional fee of one dollar ($1.00) shall be payable upon the

initial issuance of the above described illuminated plates.

   (b) All rules and regulations made under the provisions of

this section shall, after being approved by the governor and published at least

once in each county of the state, have the effect of law.
