LICENSE PLATE FONTS OF NORTH AMERICA: GRUNGE

Motorway  |  2004, Vic Fieger, free.

Motorway font specimen (full alphabet)

Font consists of: Single weight as shown, with letters, numbers, and hyphen/dot character only.

About this typeface: Of marginal quality but perhaps worth including here because of the built-in embossing effect. Although the underlying font (prior to grunging) shows similarities with DIN 1451 (used for many European countries’ number plate fonts), it doesn’t quite appear to be a font originally designed for license plates, but more of a turn-of-the-century grotesque sans that has been electronically condensed, then embossed and grunged.

The appearance of the stroke weights here, which are thicker horizontally than vertically, is usually a distortion introduced by quick-and-dirty pseudocondensing. Possibly the pseudocondensed look was purposeful in a grungy sort of way, though, so if cheap and fast is the look you are after, this might be your cup of tea.
