Rejected: These vanity license plate requests were not street-worthy

Rejected: These vanity license plate requests were not street-worthy | SAN ANTONIO XYZ | Scoop.it
Texas is a big state, and drivers here spend a lot of time on the road. So it's only natural that some motorists want to share a message while they are driving around in their cars or trucks.
Al Cannistra's insight:

Weeding out license plates for things like HELL NAW, H3LL YEA, IPASGAS, FARTS, PORNSTR, DATBUTT, ILSPNKU and SEXDRIV has to be a challenge! But the article reminds me of a story that circulated in Chicago when I lived there and vanity plates had just been released in Illinois. Somebody requested and GOT  “NO PLATE” – and while it sounded kind of cute, every time a police officer wrote a ticket for a car with NO PLATE – guess who got thousands of dollars in tickets. The plates were withdrawn (I do not know if that is fake news – but the story did circulate a while)

 

I searched for the story and found a link that suggests the same story happened in other states too! Be careful what you ask for – it might bite you!   https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/licensed-to-bill/
