I have a previous post on the latest mediocre SD license plate design here already. This is the beauty you will get with new license starting next year. Looks nice if you like photos of Mt. Rushmore, but if you like readable license plates with useable information on them it sucks.
But, with only about 770,000 of us in SD, not too many of the license plates ever get far enough away from SD that they make diddly squat difference on tourism or anything else.
