Saudis Ban Lewd License Plates Including Those With "USA"

It looks like that bow didn’t get us anywhere.
Saudi Arabia has banned lewd license plates including those that spell out offensive words like “USA.”

The Daily Times reported:

Saudi Arabia has banned auto licence tags whose Arabic characters spell out offensive words when romanised, with the list of banned combinations including “USA”, Al-Watan newspaper reported on Sunday. Saudi plates normally have three Arabic characters and three numbers, but the growing fashion is for auto owners also to display a version using the Latin alphabet and some buyers of personalised “vanity plates” deliberately choose Arabic letters which turn into explicit words. The authorities in charge of issuing vanity plates have released a list of nine prohibited three-letter combinations. On the list are combinations like “BUT,” “BAD” and “BAR” — the latter presumably a problem because it suggests alcohol.. But first on the list, for unexplained reasons, is the combination ‘USA’.
