The Texas Department of Motor Vehicles is revoking the personalized license plate issued to a Houston man, because it has now been deemed offensive.
I had it for more than three years without any problem, Safer Hassan said.
Hassan recently received an official letter from the state that said his Texas plate, 370H55V, would be canceled within 30 days.
People have no idea what that plate means. My closest friends dont even know, Hassan said.
It is when the license plate is turned upside down that a curse word becomes more evident.
The Texas DMV letter alludes to a similar plate that was recently reviewed and rejected.
They may have just searched similar type plates, Hassan theorized.
Hassan said he planned to appeal the states decision.
I seem to me that it would only be offensive if he flipped his car over.
Upside down spells: Asshole. I think it’s funny, but I can see where the DMV has a problem.
My question is why would someone put that on a Lamborghini?
Also, you have to reverse it.
It is a Lamborghini. Let him have whatever he wants.
There was another one that was rejected “3MTA3”.
Oops, you don’t have to reverse it. Just turn it upside down.
Because it describes the operator?
if there is a plate on the front of the car, it could be read by the driver in front in the rear view mirror.
It would be upside down in a rearview mirror?
3MTA3 = EATME: That one is really funny!
Apparently he is labeling himself as a service to the rest of us.
I remember reading a story years ago about offensive vanity plates that slipped through the DMV.Some joker in California had a “SMEGMA” plate for awhile until people complained.
The homosexuals don’t seem to have a problem with it...
