Manatee County drivers love manatees

BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) -- Manatee County residents sure love manatees.


Of all the specialty license plates sold in the county this year, the Save the Manatee one was the most popular. Close behind were plates dedicated to fellow sea creatures, Protect Wild Dolphins and Helping Sea Turtles Survive.


The ranking is based on statistics from the Florida Department of Motor Vehicles website and includes data up until November.


 Statewide data for 2010 is not yet available, but in 2009, the University of Florida was the top-selling license plate.


Drivers who want to buy specialty plates pay an extra fee when registering their vehicles, which helps support their cause.
