The State of Maryland has a blacklist of over 4,000 words and letter combinations that aren’t allowed and considered too naughty to flash other drivers with.
Tags that have scatological (S**T) or sexual references are banned. Ones that use curse words, epithets or obscenities; carry a “fraudulent or deceptive purpose” (FBI and CIA are banned); refer to illegal acts (sorry, no HEROIN or KILLALL) or are racist or ethnically biased.
Tags like SUX2BU are allowed however when employees at the MVA have to use discretion.
Sometimes it takes a while to get a vanity tag like this one: 6ULDV8 looks like a random jumble of characters.
Look closer and it sounds like, “Sexual Deviant”.
The spanish scat word MIERDA is banned.
AHHWTF was approved. LOLWTF, too, even though it’s banned.
The Islamic word for God, ALLAH, is allowed.
The agency is thinking about banning PHATAZZ and BAD AZZ if complaints start rolling in.
