TAMPA, Florida - You can put just about anything on a license plate in Florida, but the one limit to customized and vanity plates are words and phrasesthat other drivers might find offensive.
Florida only allows seven characters on a tag, but thousands of drivers have made requests that were ultimately rejected by the Department of Highway Safety & Motor Vehicle (DHSMV).
"(We review) "things that would be generally objectionable," said DHSMV spokesperson Leslie Palmer. "Things dealing with race (and) things...of a blatant sexual nature."
Before a license plate is rejected, the majority of a special DHSMV committee must indicate it could be offensive to a large group of people. Then, one of the agency heads still must uphold the committee's findings.
As a result, you'll see most requestedplates - from the funny to the crude to the weird - ultimately approved.
But 10 News obtained the master list of Florida's objectional license plate review decisions and sometimes its hard to figure out why one plate was approved while another was rejected.

(Warning: potentially offensive)
While G8TR H8R, G8TR H8R2, G8R H8, G8RS SUK, and G8R PIMP were all rejected, G8TR HTR was approved in 2007.
While OLD FART was rejected, HORNMAN was approved.
While GUN PLAY was rejected, GUN SAFE was approved.
While BIG TURD was rejected, BG JONSN was approved.
Unfortunately for Rays fans, neither SOX-H8TR nor YKS SUK was approved.
