North Carolina targets WTF licence plates

'Potentially offensive'

North Carolina is offering 10,000 vehicle owners whose licence plates contain the "potentially offensive" combo of letters "WTF" the chance to replace them for free.

According to WXII12.com, the state's Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) was tipped off to the outrage by a 60-year-old technology teacher from Fayetteville who in turn had been alerted to the TLA by her teenage grandchildren.

The DMV has now notified those affected, and "anyone who has an issue with their plate can contact their local DMV office to request a new one". ®
