There was a story on NPR a few days ago about a woman who was a vegan and really loved tofu, and was turned down for her vanity plate, ILVTOFU.

Ah the 80's... when people were so busy asking "can we do it?", they never stopped to think "should we do it?"

Simple solution, do away with vanity plates. Aside from the owner, nobody give a shiat what anyone's plate says anyway.

Most of the time when I see vanity plates I immediately think "they paid extra for that? what the hell were they thinking?" The exception was when I saw one that said ML8 ML8. It was on a white VW Rabbit. I LOL'd.

I have seen some really funny ones, but most of them are eyeroll-worthy.

my state will not sell me any variation of a BO HICA plate - even though it's my name...

I don't know how other states are, but in my state, driving & operating a motor vehicle is a PRIVILEGE, not a right. Since it is granted by the state, you must accept some restrictions. So, "free speech" doesn't apply.

I'm sure you mean use of public roads is a privilege. I drive on my own property all the time. Sometimes I even take the plates off just to feel a rush of pure, American Freedom.

I like the unintentionally amusing plates. Had one running around here for years with "420 LSD". I always expected that would get ripped off at some point.

YouPeopleAreCrazy: Virginia, being vanity plate central, provides lots of opportunities:


Man, I used to see those OBX stickers on cars up here and couldn't figure out what they meant. I thought maybe it was obnoxious. Then someone finally clued me in.

I stand by my original theory.

I have always thought that for the states the headaches caused by vanity plates was more headache that its worth.

Care to spend £25,000 for a plate? Link goes to UK government's auction house

I had a good chuckle at that. I also agree.

Until I learned what it stood for, I always thought of this:

I call her Evil Mom Beast. She calls me "the boy", based on Bill Cosby's stand up bit.
Dad bought her the plate because she missed me when I moved out of state.
People love it, hate it or are completely mystified. She's had mothers yell at her in parking lots for batshiat reasons and people motioning her to roll down her window at stoplights to tell her "My kids want to know how you got their mom's license plate". She loves it. :)

I don't understand why states don't just stop giving out personalized plates. Oh yeah, I forgot, the money....

And not that I vandalize cars or anything, but if I ever decided to start, I'd sure single out the cars with personalized plates.

oddly enough though, i saw a georgia vanity plate that read: HNIC
inconsistent indeed.

CSB,
My best friend, Hardon, had a handicapped vanity plate on his 1966 Delta 88. It was his before mentioned first name. After eight years, the DOT made him turn it in because multiple people had complained about it. He had a hearing in front of a panel of whatever bureaucrats who decided such matters and had to argue, "I'm not being offensive, it's my first name."
