WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Some Kansas residents apparently consider the state's list of banned words for personalized license plates a challenge.
Revenue department officials say they are always on the lookout for Kansans who try to find a way around the list, which contains almost 1,200 entries.
The Wichita Eagle reports ( http://bit.ly/13CO9v8 ) that the list includes basic curse words, sexual innuendoes, racial slurs and drug references.
Donna Shelite, director of vehicles, says drivers go to great lengths to get around the rules, such as using numbers for letters. And she admits she doesn't always understand some of the applications.
Shelite says the state rejects about 300 of the 61,000 applications for personalized plates it receives every year.
Personalized plates cost $45 in addition to registration, regular fees and taxes.
