It happened last night at the Bike Back the Night ride…
Have they been popping up in your neighborhood too?

NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive (heck, sometimes we even fix your typos!). That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with tact and respect. This is our business and we do not tolerate mean commenters who add nothing of value to the discussion.
Unfortunately, we are not robots and we don't always catch everything. You can help by notifying us if you see inappropriate comments. Thanks! — Jonathan and Michael
We got ours a couple weeks ago, but haven\’t seen anyone elses.
We have not gotten our replacement yet. :(
Got ours also, Im also in the DE list.. hehe.
Saw one in Tigard on mon? they look good
ohh and not to be a spelling nazi cause I can\’t spell worth beans and could care less but … \”siting\” ?
wow. duh. fixed.
I saw one on a Subaru a couple of days ago on Hawthorne. Perhaps the same Subaru as in the photo above!
Subaru\’s get first issue.
Got mine in time for my birthday this week DENK
I saw one on a Scion today at lunch downtown.
Way to be psyched about Cars ! Aren\’t cars awesome !
Got mine earlier this week.
RyNO Dan- (11) Yes, bicyclists are noticing cars. Now if only we can get cars to notice bicyclists. Isn\’t that what this plate is all about?
There\’s one on a ZipCar here on Millikan in Beaverton. This version looks nice!
Yeah, some of us have a car or two (or three), but we\’re all cyclists and hope more car drivers see us and don\’t hit us. Having a state-approved way to help achieve that end is something to be psyched about for sure!
(My perception is that the public takes the message more seriously from a license plate than a \”special interest\” bumper sticker).
hmmm, odd. suddenly I want one…
been slacking on sending my old ones back so,ok there gone now…….not to bad… the new ones.
Got mine earlier this week! Haven\’t put them on the car yet, but I plan to do that tomorrow.
Must be a Subaru thing…
A couple of friends in Salem have them. But I\’ll stick to my Permanent Disabled Veterans plate.
Sent my old one back right away, but haven\’t gotten the new ones.
The yellow OBRA truck got it\’s plate almost a month ago. I got mine for the Mini this week. I am DEPH. Does that mean that I am not as shallow as I thought?
ZOMG cars are evil, shouldnt have a new I-5 bridge built for them, all lanes should be turned into bike lanes, blah, blah. . No really, I\’m all for bikes, on the road (but mainly off road).
Its just funny to see all the negative car comments on this site all the time, but suddenly if there is a picture of a bike on a car\’s license plate then suddenly cars are great!
I wonder if the newly issued plates are coming sooner then the re-issues for those of us who had to send them back… It better come before the temporary tag expires in a few weeks!
our temp tags expired TWICE in the time it took them to get the design issue figured out. What a pain! Our plates are in the DD series, and we got them about two weeks ago. Our original application went in on Jan 8th, so I think they might be processing those before the ones that need replacing.
And we have a Jeep, not a Subaru ;)
I haven\’t seen these in person yet, but I think Zipcars seem like a natural place to put these beautiful plates.
Got mine today, new issued as this month coincided nicely with my tags expiring. Up to DET_.
Saw DEAG on a Prius this week. Nice.
Finally got mine on Saturday. They are also DEU_ plates. They do look great!
i saw one on a jaguar in front of me on SE 11th Ave this weekend! :o)
You guys in Oregon have me versions of a licence plate than anywhere else!… This is an awesome cause… I hope the money raised by this goes to a share the road program… though just the awareness is worth much!… Here in BC we need a program like this… I\’ll have to make the MV dept aware of this programme you have.

I\’ve got mine, and my friend Jules Kopel-Bailey (candidate for State Rep in HD42, inner SE Portland) tells me he got his too.
They look nice but I already have personalized plates that say SHAR RD and I don\’t want to give them up!
seen on a Zipcar too? that\’s cool. I drive Zipcars, and they all usually have special issue plates, like Cultural Trust, etc., I figured it\’d be a matter of time before they got some \”Share the Road\” tags. Now if they\’d start putting racks on top of the Subaru wagons, I\’d be totally stoked.
Got mine last Saturday!
i saw that car (pictured above) on Hawthorne today. he\’s everywhere!
This is my car and she lives on the westside. I\’ve seen a few others like me so wave if you have one!
That\’s my car and she lives on the Westside. I\’ve seen a few other plates out there so wave if you have one!
Got mine, but haven\’t gotten in the car lately! They look cool…
