In 2020, the Florida Legislature created the Thank a Lineman specialty plate for Florida drivers. Through heat waves and storms, these men and women work long hours to safely and quickly make repairs to keep the lights on for Floridians. Nationwide, there are over 74,000 lineworkers. Your support of the Thank a Lineman plate shows your appreciation of their hard work and helps support the next generation of lineworkers.
