New Yorkers oppose the recently announced requirement that motorists must turn in their license plates that are more than ten years old and replace them with new ones by a 2-to-1 margin.

That's according to a new poll from the Siena Research Institute.

75 percent of New York residents surveyed think the $25 license replacement fee is unfair.

Ten percent of New Yorkers said they voted in the recent online poll to select a new license plate design and another third say they were aware of the poll but didn't vote.

“New Yorkers of every stripe – regardless of party, region, gender, race, or age – oppose the new requirement to surrender license plates that are at least a decade old for newly designed state license plates. Opposition is smaller with Democrats, New York City voters, and black, Latino and younger voters, however, a majority or plurality of each of those groups oppose this new requirement on motorists,” said Siena College pollster Steven Greenberg.
