DMV objects to license plate COPSLIE, approves GR8GOVT

The petitioner in this case applied for a vanity license plate from the New Hampshire Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) that would have read, “COPSLIE.” The DMV denied the request pursuant to a regulation prohibiting any vanity license plate that “a reasonable person would find offensive to good taste,” reasoning that the request advanced an “accusation of moral turpitude.” Instead, the DMV issued the petitioner plates bearing his alternative choice of “GR8GOVT.”
