‘FK KOVID’ and other rejected Ohio vanity plates in 2022 (graphic)
CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Some Ohio drivers wanted to put some very colorful and creative messages on their vanity plates in 2022.
A committee of BMV workers meets daily to look over request and determine if they meet one of three areas for rejection:
- Plates that are profane or can be interpreted as obscene, sexually explicit, or scatological (i.e., pertaining to feces or excrement)
- Plates that are so offensive that they could reasonably be expected to provoke a violent response from a viewer without additional comment
- Plates that advocate immediate lawlessness or lawless activities.
Drivers still try to get around those rules by spelling words different like ‘KOVID,’ because they may think a computer is weeding through submissions.
Below is the complete list from the Ohio BMV and the date in 2022 they were rejected. Reader discretion is advised.
