Veteran - White on Blue. Most plates are number sequence only. This style "VETERAN" plate #857 is in reality a "DISABLED VETERAN" plate (DMV class code 14). These plates were issued long before there were handicaped parking spaces and before handicaped plates with international wheel chair symbol existed. See C.G.S. 14-254. Statute gives vehicles with this plate the privilege to park overtime with out penalty(i.e. at parking meters after time expired or where signs restricted amount of time a car could park in a space or lot). With the advent of handicapped parking spaces this plate can also be used to park in such spaces. DMV says you have to have a severe disability such as missing limbs etc, to qualify for this plate. When CT switched to the gradient blue plates, the small diagonal letters "VET" were used to indicate this type of plate.
