Indiana BMV Must Start Selling Personalized Plates

A judge has ruled that the Indian Bureau of Motor Vehicles must immediately start selling personalized license plates again.

The court said that a police officer had the right to buy a vanity license plate reading "0INK."

The judge said that it was a violation of free speech rights when it revoked Officer Rodney Vawter's  plate after three years, saying its content was "offensive or misleading."

It was also ruled that the BMV didn’t formal regulations to evaluate or judge what was to be printed on the plates.

The “0INK” letters were printed on a Fraternal Order of Police Plate.

The BMV stopped offering vanity plates last July until the case was decided.  The case is among several cases involving the content of vanity plates that have been filed across the country.
