Ohio motorcyclists can now get breast cancer plates


COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Motorcyclists in Ohio will now be able to buy a “Breast Cancer Awareness” license plate for their bikes.

Gov. John Kasich (KAY’-sik) signed a bill into law this week expanding the use of the popular plate that has been available only for automobiles since 2005.

Each purchase of a pink ribbon license plate generates $25 for the Breast Cancer Fund of Ohio, a nonprofit organization that helps breast cancer patients find access to affordable, quality treatment.

The auto “Breast Cancer Awareness” plates have generated nearly $650,000 for community organizations that provide services to both women and men.

The plates are available through the Bureau of Motor Vehicles.
