The NSW Roads and Traffic Authority sent Newcastle lawyer Kristen Perry a please explain letter over her Kiki number plate.
Kiki has been Ms Perry's nickname since she was a child, and the plates were purchased for her some time ago by her husband.
Personalised number plates are not meant to be obscene or to cause offence. In this case, someone complained because Kiki apparently translates to vagina in the Philippine language Tagalog.
The matter attracted considerable media attention and the RTA has hastily backed off!
If you would like to know more, Dan Proudman's story in the Sydney Morning Herald provides more details. The photo comes from that story.
I hadn't realised that I had missed the link to Dan's original story. Now inserted. My apologies.
