Low Numbered Plates

Ever seen those three and four digit license plates with DC logos and wonder how they’re given out? Turns out, they come straight from the DC City Council and the Mayor’s Office. This week, all 13 council members let loose their lists, but the Mayor won’t give it up, saying that violates the privacy of those who have them.

Of course, WTOP has that list for download (Word Document format) I don’t recognize 99.5% of the names, to be honest, but there are 10 pages of them, with plates numbering from 2 to 1248 and include all manner of folks. I really only recognize Red Auerbach, whose car bears the number 873.

Who are these folks, and how do they rate such special treatment? WTOP also claims that Chief Justice Rehnquist is on Mayor Williams’ list. Know anybody on the list? Let us know in the comments.
