WASHINGTON — A Wyoming license plates issued to drivers can be seen as a symbol of American exceptionalism.
But the plates, which were designed to honor Wyoming, may also serve as a warning to some.
“The Wyoming plates are a great thing, but I think they are a bit too patriotic,” said Brian Miller, an associate professor of sociology at the University of Wyoming.
“I think that they could be interpreted as a kind of an attack on the state of Wyoming and maybe a bit of a political statement.”
The plates are available to drivers who are not U.S. citizens, but the U.K. and Australia also offer plates for those who are.
The Wyoming plates have become a symbol for many in the U,K., U.A.E., Australia and elsewhere, as well as in the Middle East and other countries.
The Wyoming license Plate Club of America says the plates are an attempt to promote “traditional values.”
It is an effort to provide the American people with a license plate which represents the State of Wyoming, said John Fitch, the president of the Club.
It is also an attempt at a reflection of Wyoming’s uniqueness and its unique history, Fitch said.
“We are a very conservative state,” Fitch told The Associated Press in an email.
“We do not believe in being overly political.”
The club says the Wyoming plates were developed by a group of citizens, who created the plates with the idea of creating a “passing reference” for those that may have an American accent, such as students, and for those traveling through Wyoming.
Fitch said the plates were designed in collaboration with the University at Buffalo.
“They were created with the support of the UB faculty and staff and are part of the University’s ongoing effort to support the educational and cultural diversity of Wyoming students,” he said.
Fitz said the plate was created by members of the Wyoming Plate Club, and is one of many options available for Wyoming drivers.
The plates also come with an educational component, with students receiving a personalized plate that has been designed by the Wyoming plate club.
Fitts said students may use the plates as a way to educate themselves on local topics and their state, as a means of creating connections with people in Wyoming.
“In the course of their education, students may find a connection to someone in their state,” he wrote.
“Students are able to learn about a local culture and history and they also can learn about other parts of the state, like our current political situation in the United States.”
The University of Buffalo says it is not involved in the design of the plates.
The University at Albany, a private university, is not associated with the plates and does not provide any information about them.
The plate is a part of a larger effort to promote the Wyoming brand, which is an American heritage. “
They were introduced as part of an educational program in the late 1980s to provide a passing reference to students of a particular state.”
The plate is a part of a larger effort to promote the Wyoming brand, which is an American heritage.
The plates were featured in the 2016 movie “The Road Warrior,” based on a book by James M. Cain.
“You can get a license to drive in Wyoming and that is not an option for people that are from another state, or for people who are citizens of a different state, because they are not allowed to drive,” Fitt said.
“So it’s an effort by Wyoming and the state to recognize and celebrate the fact that they are an American state.”
Fitch did not respond to a request for comment from the AP.
