Vulgar license plate overlooked by California DMV

Posted: Updated:

SAN JOSE (CBS 8) - A vulgar license plate in the Vietnamese language was overlooked by California DMV officials.

The offending license plate was spotted in East San Jose and when the driver was asked about the plate, he acted like it was innocent.

The department says that on the application for a personalized plate, drivers must explain and justify the meaning of the phrase.

Researchers check the license plate phrases across 150 languages, but sometimes offensive license plates slip through the system.

The DMV relies on public complaints to identify the offensive license plates.
