IT WON’T MAKE YOU a better driver, but it’s fun to sport a Colorado pioneer license plate if you qualify for one.
Zoe Hubbard, a descendant of four pioneer families in southern Weld County, established the pioneer plate program two years ago to honor Coloradans whose ancestral roots go back 100 years. The State of Colorado agreed to make these pioneer/settler plates as long as 250 of them are in use. The program has been hugely successful. Over 7,000 such plates have been approved since its inception.
