WOMAN DENIED LICENCE PLATE TO HONOUR WIFE

-

GREENVILLE, N.C. A woman says her request for a specialty licence plate to honour her wife has been denied by the North Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles.

Amy Bright told WFMYTV in Greensboro she applied for the plate “LSBNSNLV,” for “lesbians in love.”

The DMV issued a statement saying the agency has the right to deny any licence plate it deems “offensive to good taste and decency.”

“I think that’s ridiculous. I’m trying to celebrate the love I have for my wife, so I don’t see how that’s in poor taste,” the Greenville woman said. “How can a celebratio­n of love be in poor taste?”
