And You Thought the DMV Was Bad in Your State

DMV Relocates Driver to Unfortunate Locale on License |
NBC Miami
: "The line that was supposed to display Lineberger's street address was replaced by the vulgar message and the state Department of Motor Vehicles has no clue how the mishap occurred.

Lineberger's husband, Charles, said after getting the run around on the phone with the state DMV, the couple went to the local DMV to get some answers. What they got was laughter and a quote for another fee if they wanted the license fixed.

'They thought it was hilarious like it was some kind of joke,' he said. 'Then they wanted us to pay for another license.'"

No clue? Someone typed it in.

That would be my bet.

Pretty weird, but I wouldn't think it would all that difficult for them to nail the person who did it, there must be a trail of who worked on which files. I found the last line interesting, where she says she wouldn't be getting out of aticket if she showed that license to a cop. Wake up, NO ONE EVER "gets out of a tickey", the municipalities can't afford to let scofflaws off with a warning anymore.

Don't be naive, Rick. If you have a good enough sob story (or are a hot looking babe) it has been known to happen.

My guess is that alcohol may have been involved.
