A Texas man, Safeer Hasaan, has had a vanity plate on his Lamborghini for the last three years which reads “370h55V.” He’s been told to hand it over or it will be suspended.
“It has been determined that the personalization is offensive” because of its hidden message, the Department of Motor Vehicles wrote on official stationery.
The rule for revocation is “if it would invoke a response from other drivers driving past”.
It’s hard to imagine that it would.
“I definitely think the state is overreaching their boundaries,” Hasaan said. He’s “strongly considering an appeal.”
Are you still wondering why this is a problem?
Check out the plate upside down. It’s a cuss word.
What do you think? I’m wondering if the people at the DMV has too much time of their hands.
