In the amusing world of license plates out there, it’s simply amazing how many people try to “outwit” the officials down there at the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), no matter what state you’re registered in, some opt for personal or vanity plates while others try to push there ingenuity and luck to get there “statement” on their car’s license plate. Some states are more stringent than others on what they’ll allow to pass through. To circumvent potentially offensive or embarrassing situations, some combination of letters/numbers aren’t allowed at all in certain states. What does occasionally does get through can simply be amusing, sometimes unintentional, but can make for some funny antidotes. Some individuals try to use the latest chat lingo or shorthand tricks, while others will try to pass through some geeky text or binary codes on state officials. On occasion the most amusing, hilarious, or at times embarrassing ones are those that are accidental, like when the DMV just randomly assigns some poor soul a combination of letters or numbers that just shouldn’t be together. There are a few Canadian as well as European plates included here also for your enjoyment.
Sometimes these restrictions tend to go a little overboard, according to this one particular site, apparently, California plates can’t even contain the letters POW, BAD, or even FUN.
Here for your viewing pleasure are some thought-provoking, clever, always amusing or entertaining, and funny license plates.
PS – BE FOREWARNED –> Some of these maybe tasteless and/or offensive but they’re out there none-the-less 😛
