Vanity Plates

Via Zach Patton:

Of the 21 million vehicles issued Texas plates, 93,000 have vanity plates.

Many requests for vanity plates are denied because they would spell a curse word or sex act or advertise a driver's alleged sexual prowess or inclinations, Perkes said.

Under state law, "the director may refuse to issue a specialty license plate with a design or alphanumeric pattern that the director considers potentially objectionable to one or more members of the public."

Since 2000, TxDOT turned down requests for: DA HOWS, KISS IT, OVRSXD, BUTNKD, MS LUST, KWIKEE, AMOR 69 and ASSMAN.

TxDOT also will deny requests that promote violence or are in poor taste, Perkes said. Not issued were plates that would have read MURDER, ALKY, PMS 365 and GNGSTR.

Classic ...
