20 Vanity Plates Rejected By Ohio’s DMV That Michiganders Would Never Even Try
No matter where you go, there are tacky, tasteless vanity license plates on people's cars. There are even some here in Michigan that may leave you scratching your head, wondering just what the heck it means.
Then, there's Ohio. A questionable state in itself, full of equally questionable people, where they decide some things are not better left unsaid and, rather, broadcast to the world in the form of a license plate.
What Is a "Vanity Plate"?
According to the Michigan Secretary of State website, "vanity plate" is another way to refer to a personalized license plate in which the owner of the vehicle chooses whichever combination of letters and numbers goes on their license plate their heart desires.
Be warned, though, they are called "vanity" plates for a reason, because they can often tell you a lot about the person driving the vehicle in question in that very short amount of time you may be sharing that stretch of roadway with them.
Ohio Drivers and Vanity Plates
Now, we are sure this kind of thing happens everywhere. People thinking they are funny by choosing inside jokes or just blatantly filthy ones to turn into various number and letter combinations.
With Ohio, though, as evidenced by the state's DMV releasing ALL of the rejected license plates from the year before, we see they may be a bit more vulgar than most.
