Since they do not provide criteria for the determination of what is "obscene" (I'll know it when I see it does not fly with SCOTUS any more) or "objectionable" (even more vague than obscene) I would FOIA them for the specific criteria used to determine just how they determine that. Here in Virginia there have been folks who took DMV to court to get the plate they wanted. Of course we also have a system where anybody can (even anonymously) submit a complaint about an already-issued tag, which will trigger a sort of recall hearing. Unfortunately, there does seem to be a bias in favor of most religiously-based personalized tags regardless of how objectionable they actually are. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...042105132.html As you will see, even this article does not provide anything that comes close to criteria a reasonable person could follow and be assured of knowing in advance that their choice would or would not pass muster.Applications must be submitted to the license plate agency for approval or rejection of license plate choices to ensure that obscene or objectionable choices are not processed.
