You can paint over the keystone symbol to make it look like this. Interesting idea.


RoyceRedd t1_jdwu6rf wrote

There’s no keystone symbol on vanity plates. You can have either a blank space (what this probably was), or a hyphen if you choose.

Hey, that's nothing to joke about. My parish priest, Father O'Neill, was a gentle soul who never laid a hand on me when my brother and I were altar boys...

Though, my brother never bragged about being "the cute one" ever again.

The next question is if it is legal to alter a plate. Something tells me it’s not legal to alter something that’s issued by the government. Dude’s gonna get pulled over and have surprised Pikachu face.

Yet I see those police blue stripe stickers all the time and guess who isn’t getting pulled over for those? 👀 not suggesting that either is okay

Pretty sure there was a big flap recently about it being illegal in PA to cover any part of a plate with anything.

IDK about that since technically those old registration stickers were on the plate and could be considered altering it. Those stickers were technically only allowed to be on the designated top left corner but you see them on all 4 corners some times


Yen-sama t1_je1a3ug wrote

That sticker was an intended use though, and those license plates are still government property. I assume altering a license plate is a similar crime to defacing currency.

Unless you're outright trying to change the characters on the tag, which is probably considered fraud like the example given in another comment where a lady painted on an S to the end of her vanity plate.

i believe you CAN get the bolt if you have a ham radio permit or similar thing. im from MA and ive seen a couple.

edit: just looked it up, shouldve done that before posting. "So what does it mean? The Commonwealth of Massachusetts uses the lightning bolt to designate an amateur radio operator license plate. The plate number is the owner's call sign, as issued by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)."


sjudrexel t1_je1g6xj wrote

You’ve heard of the Dead Head sticker on a Cadillac. I present to you the AC/DC license plate on a Buick.


beachsidewilly t1_jdyhzh2 wrote

You can order custom license plates online that look just like the real thing online, which is probably what this guy did. Hence the special character. Hopefully he has a vanity plate registration with the same characters.


Yen-sama t1_je1cect wrote

It's probably not legal to use a plate that isn't issued by the government, even if the characters are the same and legit.


beachsidewilly t1_je1m7zm wrote

That was my thought when I considered doing that myself, but I couldn’t find anything saying it was illegal. That said, surely you’d be in less hot water if the non-issued plate matches your issued plate.

Doesnt look like the bolt is pushed out. Was it just vinyl lightning bolt?

They do not provide the stickers anymore. That is correct.

Can confirm. When they stopped issuing the stickers I was guaranteed to be pulled over when I drove into Maryland. Cops wanted to snag me for an expired registration, and it took an unbelievable amount of time for the officer(s) to figure out that if the registration card says current, the plate is current.

Finally got tired of it and removed all the old stickers - guess what happened the next time I went down? Yup, pulled over for NOT having a reg sticker. Same routine checking out if my registration card was legit.. MD State Troopers, local cops in NorthEast and Elkton are not very smart.

I don't know if it's gotten any better as I sold my boat just before covid hit, and haven't had a reason to go back.
