California License Plate Sequence


This is silly. I have long been curious about the timing of new numbers on California license plates. The original patter was ### AAA (three letters followed by three numbers) which sometime in the late 1970s became # AAA ###. My observation is that from 2000 up to 2008, a letter sequence (e.g., from 1 B-- 000 to 1 C-- 000) lasted about two months. That has been longer since 2008.

Note that no three-letter sequence begins with I, O, or Q. These letters are used in the second and third places. I suppose this is to prevent confusion with 1 or 0.

After all, you don't want to end up like the Hinton family, poor devils. They were delivered 100,000 tins of lizard meat when all Mrs. Hinton wanted was an all purpose scraper. (Bonus points and special mention to anyone who recognizes that reference and emails me — Andy dot Schlei at obsballona dot net.)

I will use this wiki page to be a bit more scientific, and record the turnovers as I see them. The recording level will be at the first two characters of the plate.
