LICENSE PLATES — AND THE MESSAGES THEY TELL

 I’m a serious runner, doing runs of from 5 to 15 miles, five days out of seven.
To keep my mind occupied, I listen to Hawaii Public Radio, using my trusty iPhone. Using that same device — isn’t modern technology a marvel? — I occasionally stop to take photos. Recently I have focused on license plates. For one thing, you can tell roughly, the age of a car by its license plate. Mine (JPV 987) reflects a relatively long-in-the tooth car (purchased in 2001). Margie’s recently purchased (2013) Ford C-Max has the plate RWZ 944.
 
       If you pay extra for “ vanity” plates — I think that’s what they’re called
— a stranger may not by able “age date” your car. But he or she can tell something about   you!
TRJN77

TRJN77

     First example: TRJN77. When I saw that, I thought maybe this car has a USC-connected owner. YES! in the window above, I saw a USC sticker and a cartoon-like Trojan. At the bottom left, barely visible, was a strip saying “Keep the Country Country.” I like that!

YAHWEH

YAHWEH

Another license plate I spotted: YAHWEH. Yahweh is the Hebrew name of God in the Bible.

AO-AKUA

AO-AKUA

A third plate read AO AKUA. That means “Divinity” in Hawaiian. Interesting! These owners seem to be people of faith. One more thing to note is that the people with the license plates that name God are driving BMWs. Hmmm.
