    They should require you to bring your plates in every time they're renewed and if you have stickers all over on it, revoke your driver's license. And additionally take out the ridiculous law that you can be ticketed for having something over the county name.

    Well there is a precedent for reducing the number of counties in Iowa. Look up Bancroft County.

    I can only assume it was the northern half of what is now Kossuth County and therefore why Kossuth County sticks out on the map?

    Of course there is also a precedent for increasing the number of counties. In 1976 an Iowa league of counties voted to make Mars the 100th Iowa county.

    Yup. The city of Bancroft would be another clue. Bancroft County only lasted about six years.

    Want any more worthless Iowa county trivia? Iowa has 99 counties but 100 county seats.

    Yeah, agreed. If we're going to reissue plates, go with a new design, i dont see why not.

    Special thanks to Keokuk and Fort Madison I believe in Lee County for being to a-holes.

    Maybe I did pay attention in 6th grade Iowa history.


    I laugh thinking about what Bancroft County would be now. 12 residents in Lakota. 14 in Ledyard. 85 in Bancroft. 13 in Swea City. :biglaugh:

    Almost all the others are in mississippi and arkansas... so i guess they've got that similarity going for them..

    Is that actually an infraction? Seems to me if you got busted for that you could point to a college vanity plate and say, "What county are they from?"

    EDIT: Didn't read the post correctly. My written warning was for a frame covering the bottom text on the yearly sticker.

    Absolutely is an infraction. My Iowa State Alumni vanity plate is against the law because "Alumni" covers up Kossuth.

    Is it for covering the county name or is it actually for covering one or both of the stickers on the plate?

    He is talking about the college vanity plates not the frames...the plates do not say a county name on it
