I think that if you order a personalized license plate for your vehicle it should come with an explanation box for the rest of the world. I can’t be the only person in Idaho who has seen a personalized plate that left you questioning what it meant. Sometimes it is such an issue that I get distracted trying to decipher the letters that I probably become an unsafe driver.

Idaho has a system in place to block anyone who attempts to get a personalized plate that could be considered offensive, but the system isn’t perfect. You can check out a gallery of rejected license plates in a few paragraphs, but first, let’s talk about a picture that surfaced online recently. I must advise you that the next few sentences could be offensive to some. In the Idaho Reddit chats, someone posted a picture of an Idaho license plate with the letters ‘HALFCKD’. Even if you have a mind as pure as Sun Valley snow, you might immediately see a bad word there. But, there’s no way Idaho would allow that, right?
