Vanity plates

I’ve been spending a good chunk of time commuting to and from work. Most of it being stuck in traffic on I-290. It can be a miserable experience, but listening to the radio helps. I also like looking around and spotting different license plates. Apparently custom plates are quite popular in Illinois.

Here we have a character from one of my favorite silent movies. I spotted him on two different occasions. Oh, and the driver looks actually Indian!

I decided to get a vanity plate of my own. It was actually quite easy: few clicks on a website and viola. The plate was on its way. It did take more than a month (just shy of 30 business days), but I finally got it today. Behold:

I really hope it will help me get out of speeding and parking tickets… or, at the very least, bring a smile to my fellow I-290 commuters 🙂
