Kentucky needs a EMS license plate

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!


The state of Kentucky is one of the very few states that doesn't have a specialty license plate for those who work in Emergency Medical Services. There are emergency management, firefighter, and police plates but its time to recognize emergency medical services. 

Those who are a resident of Kentucky and have a CURRENT non-expired state of Kentucky issued EMT or Paramedic card would be eligible for the plate. 

The cost and fees would follow current KRS 186.162 guidelines with the following:

key:"SF" means the portion of an initial or renewal fee to obtain a special license plate that is dedicated for use by the Transportation Cabinet;

"CF" means the portion of an initial or renewal fee to obtain a special license plate that is dedicated for use by a county clerk; and

"EF" means the portion of an initial or renewal fee to obtain a special license plate that is mandated by this chapter to be dedicated for use by a particular group or organization.

(bb) Emergency Medical Services 

Initial Fee: $45 ($42 SF/ $3 CF/ $0 EF

Renewal Fee $25 ( $13 SF/ $12 CF/ $0 EF)

Customized plate (optional) costs will abide by current KRS rate of $25.00 plus the Initial or Renewal Fee. 

 

Costs:

As of 2016 there were 13,452 EMS providers in Kentucky. Saying 30% would buy a plate would bring roughly $169,495.20 to the state transportation cabinet, $12,106 to the county clerks office for the initial costs, not including personalization or renewal fees. 

 

I hope that everyone and Kentucky can get on board with the rest of the states and make this happen!!
