NJ woman's vanity plates cause a stir
A Manville woman who had license plates that everyone knew her by is now being forced to turn them in.
Kim Romano's license plate read 'BIOCH.' When she received the personalized plates four years ago the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission had no problem issuing them. However, the MVC can ask someone to return their vanity plates if someone complains.
That's exactly what happened with the 'BIOCH' license plates. An MVC spokesperson explained that language is ever evolving and that what's offensive now may not have been offensive two years ago.
Romano says that her next choice of license plates will reflect her feelings on the matter. The new vanity plate will read 'WHAEVER.'
