Jay Skebba recently filed a public records request with the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles on behalf of The Blade to obtain a list of every vanity license plates rejected by the State of Ohio during the past 12 months. The results were hysterical! There were a lot of variances that included the number "69" as well as common text lingo like "AF." There were also some college football superfans who wanted to use their plates to insult their school rivals such as "FICHGN" or "MICH SUX". In 2018, variations of "DEEZ NUT" were popular.
Devon Riggins, the Chief of Vehicle Information, told The Blade about 200-300 personalized license plates are requested every day in the state. Most get approved. Some get flagged. And, the acceptability of some lingo has evolved over time.
