Injury is the number one cause of death of children in Connecticut (and throughout the
United States). But you can help reverse this sad fact and Keep Kids Safe.
When you purchase a Keep Kids Safe license plate, at least 70% of the fee goes to the Keep
Kids Safe Fund which awards grants to schools, hospitals, municipalities and other non-profit
organizations working to make all Connecticut children safer from severe and preventable injuries.
Connecticut drivers who purchase the Keep Kids Safe license plates display to other drivers
their commitment to a brighter and safer tomorrow for everyone’s children.
It’s easy to be part of the Kids’ Safety Team
Keep Kids Safe license plates are easy to order. Visit the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV)
web site, or you can phone
the DMV at 566.4710 (in the Greater Hartford area) or 1.800.842.8222 (outside the Greater
Hartford area) for a Special Order Plate Application form (M-22). Or, if you’re ordering an
off-the-shelf plate, you can purchase one at any branch of the DMV.
The cost to purchase the Keep Kids Safe license plate is a one-time charge. When your
registration comes up for renewal, you just pay the required registration renewal fee.
It’s kind to your pocketbook, too.
For $50, you can order an off-the shelf Keep Kids Safe license plate that has random
numbers and letters without affecting your current motor vehicle registration. ($35 goes
into the Keep Kids Safe Fund and may be tax deductible on your federal income
tax return.) This option is available for
passenger vehicles only.
For $70, you can have your existing vanity plate, low number, or current plate
transferred to the Keep Kids Safe plate without affecting your current registration.
($55 goes into the Keep Kids Safe Fund and may be tax deductible on your federal
income tax return.) This option is
available for passenger vehicles only.
To get the cheerful Keep Kids Safe background on a new vanity plate, call
566.4710 or 1.800.842.8222 and ask for a Special Order Plate Application (form M-22). In addition
to the $70 charge to transfer a plate to the Keep Kids Safe background, the $65 vanity plate charge will still apply. This option is only
available for passenger vehicles.
