An electronic license plate is one that emits signals identifying the vehicle. Several patents have been issued pertaining to such plates.[1] However, despite their lengthy test period, they have been little-deployed. It was argued by John Semmens, research project manager in the Arizona Department of Transportation Research Center, that the electronic license plate could be very useful in facilitating privatization of vehicle licensing.[2]
