Not everybody hates the RMV

Mass. licensing plate reading: THXRMV

Our own eeka quickly donned her roving UHub photographer cap when she spotted somebody driving around advertising their gratitude for the Registry of Motor Vehicles.

If you get your ish together, plan ahead and keep your expectations in check, the RMV isn’t that bad.

That's "THX RMV." Like the audio company that did Star Wars, plus the semi-official designation for British ships carrying mail.

I dunno why this car likes Lucasfilm and the British admiralty either, but it makes a hell of a lot more sense than the original interpretation.

Hmmm maybe admeralty law means they can't get a speeding ticket. Thats how that works right?

Why are you publishing content created by someone breaking the law?

The car is in a parallel parking space on Washington St just south of Nubian Square, about to pull away from the curb and exit the space. I was not driving. This might be hard to explain to you, but cars are visible and photographable while driving, while a passenger in a car, while sitting in a stationary car, and even while not in a car at all, such as while walking or while seated nearby.

Definitely doesn’t look like MA plate font. Honestly, looks like a bad photoshop edit.

The fact the letters are not centered between Massachusetts and Spirit of America is the giveaway.

Seems most likely that there's some kind of optical thing going on with the picture (maybe a license plate cover or something?) than that someone would go to the trouble of photoshopping a picture to...pretend that somewhere out there someone is showing public support for the RMV?

It's an Instagram filter to blur the surroundings, since the composition of the photo was kind of ugh.

Here are three unfiltered photos of the vehicle:

Standard issue "Spirit" plates have the month of registration (JAN, FEB, MAR, etc.) in the upper left corner of the plate. Vanity and other special issue plates (such as ham radio operator) always renew in the end of November, so there is no need to include NOV on the plates themselves.

This looks like a REALLY bad stamping by the DMV.

Thanks, DMV...

Come on now. I am much worse at photoshopping than this. You veteran UHubbers will remember when Michael Flaherty had a KitchenAid mixer that just didn't go with the colors of his kitchen, and I promptly took care of that.
