Designing a custom numberplate for your car could set you back $2000, so you would want to make sure you’re going to end up with something unique, creative, inspired and maybe a little cheeky.
VicRoads occasionally has to knock-back numberplate requests which are inappropriate or can contain a mixed message. Numberplates containing vulgar language and sexual or violent references are also deemed unacceptable. Examples of these are 4.KORK, ILYVAG and SHT2KL
Some motorists’ numberplate creations were rejected based on the notion that they could send a bad message to other drivers, such as WA2Q1, or mislead drivers by appearing to be affiliated with the government or a particular business.
Some creations can be difficult to decipher for many people, perhaps causing no offense at all. One example of this is URACEN. Unsurprisingly however, most proposed numberplates were rejected for inappropriate language.
Check out the Herald Sun’s 2013’s list of the most ridiculous, offensive and downright puzzling rejected numberplate proposals, and see if you can work out what they say.
What do you think of these customised number plate creations? Do you think VicRoads is taking a hardnosed approached to a bit of fun? Are you offended by these cryptic sexist, violent and vulgar plates?
