Okay, so that was an easy one!
Next week the Commonwealth will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the vanity license plate. Introduced in 1981, the plates were first called CommuniPlates. Back then, Virginians were offered from two to six letters and/or numbers to express themselves. Then in 1988, the number of characters increased from six to seven. The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) reports that today more than a million plates in Virginia are personalized. That’s 13 percent of the total plate registrations.
If you’re like me and love taking a guess when you see a vanity plate, you already know that some plates are harder than others to decipher…and for me, some are just down right difficult! What are some personalized plates you’ve seen and what did you read them as? I’m curious to see if others read it the same as you!
