Your Personalized License Plate Isn’t Clever

A recent comic from XKCD:

haha I could really see that happening.

Funny thing is, that the DMV has seen this before. Plates like 11I1II, WVVVWV, O0OO0 etc. are rejected. I know this because I had a friend who thought it would be a great way to “Fool” (lol) the red light cameras here in North Texas. Derp derp.

A more effective way would be like what I saw on a van the other day. This particular van had 4 tail pipes, chrome rims, a spoiler and like 5 glue on chrome engine port holes adding 15hp apeice on each side of the hood. It also had some kind of reflective cover over the plate that, unless you were right behind it, you couldn’t read anything. Wonder how many times said van gets pulled over in a day.

Way back when I was in an accident scenario that the guy behind me ran on a hit-skip accident ran. The guy rear ended me hard enough to shove me into the car in front of me at a stoplight. I was in a 97 Monte Carlo so I barely noticed it.

I wrote the plate number on my palm. If I hadn’t, the drunk driver would have gotten away with no proof. I couldn’t remember the number without my palm 15 minutes later as I was filling out the police report. A plane plate is the most anonymous thing ot there.

I saw a mini van with those plates and all I could think was drug smuggler. It’s looks way more suspicious than a normal plate. After I was done being amazed at how much the #s bled together the only thought on my mind was “what are you hiding buddy?”. But Fuck the police. Their incessant need to persecute vice crimes and wage the losing war on drugs makes them either mercenaries or fascists in my book. Fascists if they believe that busting someone for prostitution or drug possession is the right thing to do; mercenaries if they do it because they’re paid to. I have absolutely no respect for officers who make those kind of arrests; they’re worse than then criminals they put in jail. And the worst part of all is us American citizens must foot the bill for the whole fucked up charade.

I was sitting in my car waiting for my friend to get off work and was staring at a Dodge Charger in front of me. The vanity plate read SIG-4EVR. Those Sig Owners be proud…. =P
