Okalahoma’s License Plate Policies: No Drugs, No Slurs, No Sex


Keith Kimmel died before he could challenge Oklahoma Tax Commission in federal court over its 2009 rejection of his “IM GAY” license plate. But now, we know fully why he couldn’t get a license plate about his sexuality: It was too offensive.

For the same reason “SEXYBRD,” “V8BALL,” and “NOFTCHX” were denied to drivers hoping to distract you from the road, “IM GAY” was among the “curse words, sexual connotations, racial and ethnic slurs, and drug or alcohol references” Tax Commission staffers watch out for. What about “BIGUYS” or ‘BEARLVR”?
