If the program involving a particular collegiate license plate is terminated under division (B) or (C) of section 4503.511 of the Revised Code and the university or college whose name appeared on that type of collegiate license plate desires the registrar of motor vehicles to reestablish the program involving that collegiate license plate, the university or college shall apply to the registrar for the reestablishment of the program involving the issuance of license plates inscribed with that university's or college's identifying mark or design under section 4503.51 of the Revised Code.
The registrar shall not be required to reestablish a program involving a collegiate license plate that was terminated under division (B) or (C) of section 4503.511 of the Revised Code until the registrar receives written statements from not less than one hundred fifty persons, indicating that they intend to apply for and obtain collegiate license plates of that particular type for their motor vehicles. The registrar may require such statements to be made on a form the registrar provides.
In determining whether one hundred fifty persons have so indicated their intentions, the registrar shall include in the total the number of motor vehicles that continue to display the type of collegiate license plate of the terminated program, as permitted by division (D) of section 4503.511 of the Revised Code.
