License plates have been around for longer than there have been automobiles. They have been a source of interest and fun since the very first ones were issued.
The following funny story really happened to a man named Robert Barbour: He requested personalized license plates from the California DMV in 1979. The DMV form asked to list three possible choices for his plates, and he entered:
3. NO PLATE
The third "NO PLATE" option meant, if he can't get the first or the second plate, then he didn't want personalized plates at all.
However,officials at the DMV didn't understand his intentions, so they sent him vanity plates with the words "NO PLATE" written on them.
About a month later, Mr. Barbour started to receive loads of parking tickets, from all over the States. Even from places he has never been to. In total, he received about 2,500 tickets. He alerted the DMV about the problem, and he responded to every citation with a form letter.
Why did this happen? Well, law enforcement agencies usually used "NO PLATE" when citing a parked vehicle that had no plates. And, DMV computers finally found a matching address for a car with the famous "NO PLATE" license plate...
