I love customized license plates. What’s not to like? They’re fairly cheap–in my state it’s $30 a year, all of which goes to improve the roads–and are so often amusing. My family and I always try and decode them and feel a fun sense of accomplishment when we do. I live in a town small enough to see many of the same plates over and over again. Today I thought I’d share some of my favorites.
In the school pick-up line, I am routinely behind a large beige van with a plate that asks RUL82?
I’d like to hang out with whomever drives the Camry with a plate announcing WINELVR.
I sympathize with the person whose plate reads HYPRACTV.
It’s a very blue college town, so I’m never startled to see TCHPEACE.
I envy–and wonder–at the confidence of the woman who drives the red sports car that says HOTAMALE.
I love the wit of a couple whose two cars say VANITY and PLATE.
I appreciate the suggestion on the plate ELEVATE.
My friend Ann’s SUV proudly says MY4SONS.
I wonder what the meaning of the plate CAMLMLK is.
I bet the most coveted plate in town is probably ILUVUNC.
How about you? Do you see vanity plates that make you smile?
