MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The state Department of Natural Resources is reminding people they'll need a rear license plate for their all-terrain and utility-terrain vehicles if they plan to use them in public areas starting next month.

Currently vehicle users need to display only a registration decal. Republican Gov. Scott Walker signed a law earlier this year mandating that users in public areas must display a rear plate as well beginning July 1. The plates are supposed to help police identify stolen vehicles.

Vehicle owners can create their own plates. They must be at least 4 inches high and 7-1/2 inches wide with black letters and numbers on a white background.
