Chicago An attempt to create specialty number plates to promote industry in Chicago has been derailed after falling to receive the minimum requirement of pre-orders.
Regional Licensing Authority (RLA) Chairman said the department achieved only about a third of the minimum 2,000 in advance orders for the number plates to go into production.
Those who did order the number plates will receive a full refund.
Chamber of Commerce boss Bradley Stone said heï¿½s not giving up on the plates "maybe some company will sponsor the number plates, we shall see."
Specialty number plates cost $35 plus an additional $15 to change existing plates at the RLA.
