Delaware has used the same serial system for their license plates since 1910 - starting at number 1 and going up from there. (In 1909, they started at number 1000 and reset at number 1 in 1910). When you see a low number on the road, that number has real history and dozens of stories behind it.
I think it is important to preserve history and this is just another form of history. In most states, some people do not even know their license plate number, but in Delaware, we are proud of our license plates. Aside from being valuable at an auction, they are relics from our past and should be preserved and recorded accordingly!
Definitely. The law states that you can take a picture of anything that has no expectation of privacy. In this case, we are talking about a license plate on the back of a car, something that is required by law. I do not have access to the DMV website so I cannot steal anyone's information. I am simply photodocumenting Delaware's lowest license plate numbers.
