Default License Plate Rejection

When I got my bike I decided to get a personalize plate for it because I was in a good mood. The bike is purple so I went with HAYZE. I originally tried for HAZE but it was not available. It was not really a reference to Jimi Hendrix or pot or anything else drug related. It made me think mainly of when I was younger which was a good place in my life (life is still good today).

In Ohio you can renew plates online and my tags are up for renewal soon so I thought I would give HAZE another try. It was available this time so I paid and finished the process. The next day, I received a message to give the BMV a call. When I finally spoke to someone, I was asked “what was I getting at” by putting HAZE on the plate. I explained that it was more of a theme with the bike than anything else. The BVM lady told me she would send it back through for approval. Today I was told that HAZE had been rejected again and to call her to decide other options.

Maybe it’s just me but WTF! It’s not like I was trying to make a statement supporting drug use or anything else evil or befoul. I guess what I am most amazed at is that there is someone (at the BMV no less) that think they have some unique insight into what such a benign word means to everyone.

Now, I’m not sure if I am going to keep HAYZE or just have them issue me a standard plate and save some money. In the whole scheme of things, it doesn’t really matter.

Big brother is everywhere... I would fit that shit man. What happened to freedom of speech? Words on a license plate should not be rejected unless it is profane.

We just keep moving
It's been that way since long ago
Since the stone age chasing the great herds
We mostly go where we have to go

Profane,
1. characterized by irreverence or contempt for God or sacred principles or things; irreligious.
2. not devoted to holy or religious purposes; unconsecrated; secular (sacred).
3. unholy; heathen; pagan: profane rites.

Next time, say it's your nickname, or your daughter's name. Otherwise you leave the door open for them to over think it.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Tried LAYNLOW for my daughters car that sits in the weeds. Nope... sexual innuendo. What?

Subjective. POV. As a practical matter it should have no place in the bureaucratic processes of a constitutional republic since what is profane to one may not be profane to the many, but then again we only accept constitutional republicanism when it suits our fancy.

Next time, tell'em it's in memory of Woody. Everyone in Ohio loves Ohio State.
