TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Floridians who voted in an online poll favor a new license plate design that features an orange forming the "O" in Florida.
State motor vehicle officials announced the winning design on Tuesday.
The body of the flat tag is white with black numbers. The word "Florida" is in white lettering on a green stripe across the top. Another green stripe at the bottom has the words "Sunshine State."
The design, however, still needs approval from Gov. Rick Scott and the Florida Cabinet before it can go into production.
The department wants to replace existing plates that are difficult for red light and toll booth cameras to read. That's because they have raised numbers and an image of oranges and orange blossoms in the middle of each tag.
