[UPDATED] ‘HATE BAMA’ tags somehow making it past State of Alabama DMV vanity plate police

Two of the three examples of the Alabama Department of Corrections PC plate police policy disallowing mean vanity plate messages directed towards your team’s rival were people trying to alphanumeric their hate towards Auburn. H8AUBIE? HA8AUB? Both were banned and used to set an example for all the h8ters out there.

Mike Martin says he’s had the same tag for three years. “I have always wondered how it got past the State of Al PC police. Must have been a Tiger fan!”

So do the rules not apply on specialized university tags (here’s another one that’s pretty direct)? Or just to Auburn fans in general?

UPDATE: “Look at what this guy got away with” — Brittany Morgan.
