Henrico County Republican Del. John O'Bannon says his constituents requested it, and he has filed legislation to establish a "Don't Tread On Me" license plate.

The plate features the rattlesnake emblem and yellow background of the historic Gadsden Flag, which has become a symbol for the Tea Party movement.

Before a specialty plate can be issued in Virginia, 350 prepaid applications must be submitted to the state Department of Motor Vehicles. Virginia has issued more than 200 different specialty plates over the years.
