Lots of states have limits on the sort of message you can put on your vanity plates; Washington, D.C. is no exception. They’ve banned over 25,000 custom plates. (via Yahoo! News)
Getting a politics-themed slogan on a vanity license plate in Washington, D.C. may be harder than you think.
According to the official list of banned D.C. plate combinations, it may take some extra creativity to get your idea accepted by the city’s meticulous censors. The capital city’s DMV has a 53-page list of 26,993 license plate no-no’s that prohibit everything from praising the local baseball team to expressing disgust with the Internal Revenue Service. The list was made available through a Freedom of Information Request filed by the transparency website GovernmentAttic.org.
Are you a liberal who wants to stick it to the Republican Party? Too bad, “GOPSUX” isn’t an option.
Sorry, Nancy Pelosi, no “GODEMS” for you.
Too bad libertarians, “RONPAUL, “”GVTSUX,” and ANTIIRS” aren’t allowed.
