Holy f@#%, no more profanity on license plates in THIS state

In 2015, the state of Maine relaxed the restrictions on what you could put on vanity license plates.

That turned out to be a big mistake. 🤭

“It’s not safe for parents or grandparents to play the license plate game with their kids in Maine anymore,” Secretary of State Shenna Bellows said. “You can’t escape the proliferation of the f-word and worse.”

A new law is in effect to reject plates for a variety of reasons, including hate speech, violence, obscenity and those that are sexually explicit and recall those that may fall under these standards.

Here are just a few of the craziest plates I came across: CMYX4BJ, 0FSGIVN, DANK AF, BLOWME, FKURSLF, DIS NTS, and straight up — F@#$U.

Time to ramp up the creativity, Mainers.
