Is it just me, or is there a ridiculous amount of very bad and/or contrived number plates on the roads these days?
Unfortunately by the time I get home I've usually forgotten them so am, embarrassingly, unable to contribute to my own thread at the moment.
Anyone else noticed this phenomenon?

I half expected that to be spam until.I saw your name :-)
I saw TOO LETT (or something like that) on a car from the local letting agent today.

I'm fine with the creative or at least playful ones (a smirk in a traffic jam is always welcomed), but when someone gets KEVIN 44 or LUV GOLF, I have to wonder what the point is.

I saw one with DONALD here once. Norwegian number plates are usually two letters and five (I think) numbers.

I saw one with D3 RBY on it sometime ago which was quite good.

Yes, I think that one passes muster.

I have a vanity plate on my car. It reads BRITNME, which is three for the price of one in a way. You can read it as Brit in me (as in, in the car) or Brit in ME (which is the abbreviation for Maine) or Brit and me (when both Woodsman and I are in it). However, somebody pointed out to me that it could be read as Brit enemy, which wasn't quite my intention!

SEC5Y was popular around Dulwich for many years, as was ELV1S. I did like the number plate of the woman who ran the Carreg Wen caravan site outside Porthmadog : it was MCC 100 which had it been offered round London NW1 was probably worth substantially more than the aged Austin 1800 it adorned.

I once found myself driving behind JEN1 TLA. I thought that had a lot going for it : like the Phoenicians or old Hebrew, it just missed out 2-3 actual vowels.

That said, I think the peak of the personalised number plate was back in about 1999 and since then it has all become a bit naff, if it wasn't already. So this string is hardly aujourd hui.

I thought it might be about your ongoing relationship with chanteuse Ms. Spears.....

If people earn their own money it is up to them how they spend it.

Down on Chelsea embankment the are two cars in one carport whose plates are; 2 BE and NOT 2B. That's pretty cool.

Reminds me of the plate that reads ANUSTART.

Perfectly true, but that does not stop them being utterly naff in the process.

That is very cool.

In Llansteffan, South Wales I once saw a car with the registration H20 DWR. H₂O is, of course, the chemical formula for water, and dŵr is the welsh word for water.

My state's motoring body has a part devoted to these plates, just went to the website to try and find it and the whole layout's changed to such a simple design that I can't see that part anymore.

Found it.....they're called 'custom plates' and have a box where one can select the six characters to see if it's already been done. Certain ones are rejected and there was a newspaper article about this in the last few months.
