The Registry of Motor Vehicles today announced the 118 winners of the 2005 Low Number Plate Lottery that was held on Thursday, September 1st during a broadcast of "The Howie Carr Show."
Governor Mitt Romney, Secretary of Transportation John Cogliano, and Registrar Kim Hinden joined a handful of Howie Carr listeners in Howie's WRKO studio to pick the winners.
"For the Registry of Motor Vehicles and for 118 lucky drivers this year's low number plate lottery was a huge success," said Romney. "For those who didn't win, there's always next year - better luck next time, Howie."
Also picked were 25 alternates in the event that the winners do not pick up their plates.
"Once again we had thousands of entries this year, demonstrating how much enthusiasm Massachusetts drivers show for low number license plates," said Registrar Kim Hinden. "Due to the incredible popularity of the lottery we wanted to give 25 lucky people a second bite at the apple this year by drawing alternates."
By law, the Registry of Motor Vehicles holds an annual drawing for any returned or unwanted low number plates. The winners, listed on the attached page, each have until December 31, 2005 to make arrangements to get their plate from Registry Headquarters in Boston.
