RPlates are now on sale in California and will be available in Arizona, Texas, and Florida in the near future.
NBC News interviewed Dr. Ashraf Gaffar, an assistant professor of engineering at Arizona State University, who studies automotive technologies. He agreed that digital license plates could offer some benefits but cautioned that they might introduce other problems.
A quick check of the Rplate site shows no locations in Florida are selling the plates right now, but the company said it expects sales here this year. However, state officials say that’s not the case — the plates have not yet been approved here.
