“Don’t Tread On Me” soon may become an oft-used expression onVirginia roads.

A state lawmaker is proposing a bill to create a license plate for Virginians to express solidarity with the spirit of the Tea Party movement.

At the request of constituents, Henrico County Republican Del. John O’Bannon has filed legislation to establish a “Don’t Tread On Me” license plate.

The plate features the rattlesnake emblem and yellow background of the historic Gadsden Flag, which has become a symbol for the Tea Party movement.

The Virginian-Pilot reports that about 600 people have expressed interest in the plates through a group tied to the Virginia Tea Party Patriots federation.

Before a specialty plate can be issued in Virginia, 350 prepaid applications must be submitted to the state Department of Motor Vehicles. Virginia has issued more than 200 different specialty plates over the years.

According to, it would cost $10 extra for a standard “Don’t Tread On Me” plate and an extra $20 for a personalized version.

The “application form” that the website is collecting can be found here.

Virginia isn’t the only state considering adding a Tea Party plate. Texas is pondering the same thing.
