BrainyBear: Why do we think our state-issued license plates are Constitutionally-guaranteed free speech? What makes us think that we're entitled to have our license plates express some personal message. Go buy a bumper sticker.


I couldn't agree more.

However, the real issue here is simple; nowhere in the Constitution is the right to not be offended guaranteed.

This issue spreads far beyond license plates, and has gone way out of control. When people stop worrying about what everyone else thinks and starts keeping themselves - and those they care for - safe and secure without exploiting others the word will become a much less complicated place in which to live.

...Who put this soap box under me?

If all license plates were anonymous random sequences, then it wouldn't be an issue. Some 'messages' being state approved and some not is what is discriminatory and objectionable.

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

I believe that the word "inconsistently" equates to "whar bannun the wunz we understand ayund thaynk ar bayd"
Which probably isn't very many.

Civil servants don't exactly need to be MENSA candidates to get thar jerbz.

That being said, my last trip to the DMV was actually quite pleasant.

This. Why don't we get rid of personalized license plates altogether? The only purpose a license plate serves is to provide a unique identifier for a licensed vehicle. Why the hell should the licensing agency allow this to be customized to begin with?

Vanity plates are the Internet posts of the highway. No matter what you put on them someone will call it GHAAAAAAAY.

Personalized license plates are so 80s.
