Emoji Number Plates Now Legal In Australia

Like most, we enjoy personalizing our cars and spending money to do so however we’d pass on the emoji plate.

Most provinces in Canada and states in the US permit automobile owners to personalize their car’s number plates. The reason is simple: There’s lots of money to be made. As we all know, there are countless rules and limitations but with enough creativity, it is possible to come up with a unique and clever plate.

Emojis are not clever. They maybe were back in 2011 but their ship has sailed. And sailed straight to Queensland, Australia, it would appear. As of Friday March 1st, citizens of the state of Queensland will get the opportunity to include a cartoonish yellow face on their plate.

Not all of the seemingly billions of emojis are “legal.” Five are approved and are the following: “laugh out loud”, “wink”, “sunglasses”, “heart” and “smile.” Nope, no turd or puking, unfortunately.

Many question the smarts or absence thereof of this decision. Queensland Law Society president Bill Potts said that police number plate recognition systems may have a hard time discerning the different emojis.

We’re changing our mind! We’ve found the reason to embrace emojis! Someone start a petition to bring emojis to license plates throughout North America!
