Autism License Plates in Tennessee

One theme of the book I'm writing is that autism touches a bewildering array of policy areas.  For instance, what does autism have to do with automobiles and driving?  From The Chattanoogan:
The Tennessee autism community needs help getting the state’s first Autism Awareness license plate printed. Once a specialty plate project has been approved by the House and Senate, Tennessee requires 1,000 copies be pre-sold before it will be added to the DMV lineup of plates available.
The autism community has less than 150 left to pre-sell in order for this plate to be printed.

The Autism Awareness license plate was the project of four Tennessee moms. All four have children on the autism spectrum and wanted to spread autism awareness in a big way, while also raising money for the autism organizations that have touched their lives.
The funds from the license plate sales will support the missions of Autism Tennessee (formerly the Autism Society of Middle Tennessee), the Autism Society of East Tennessee and the Autism Society of the Midsouth, serving West Tennessee.

The organizations provide resources and supports to families living with autism.

License plates are $35.
