I would suggest all GNU/Linux (or Linux — call it what you want) advocates to look into this in your state. When you get down to it, the $40 extra a year comes out to less than $4 a month. Skip a sandwich once a month and you can afford it.
California has seven letters available; some states, like Texas, have six. So whlie I have GNU LNUX in California, California drivers can get LNUX ROX, TUX 1, etc. Be creative. We’ll know what you mean.
See you on the road.
