NH Woman Fighting Request To Surrender ‘PB4WEGO’ Vanity Plate
Spoiler:
ROCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — A New Hampshire woman is fighting the state Department of Motor Vehicles over her 15-year-old vanity license plate showing a common parental phrase.

–– ADVERTISEMENT ––



Seacoastonline.com reports Wendy Auger, of Rochester, has been asked to surrender the plate, which reads “PB4WEGO.” The state says phrases related to excretory acts aren’t permitted.


Auger’s appealing. She asked: “Who has a mom or dad or parental figure who hasn’t said that to kids before leaving the house?”



She’s one of 92 New Hampshire drivers who received vanity plate recall letters this year. State records show there are 152,028 vanity plates on the road in New Hampshire.

A DMV spokesperson said plates must be rejected “when they do not conform to legal requirements.” The spokesperson said the state cannot comment on the specifics of Auger’s case.

WHTRMN -- car in front of me at school drop off. I told my daughter he must be a weatherman, and she said I was crazy, it was just a random license plate! She's 11, so I had to 'splain personalized plates to her. I don't think she believed me...
