Her Number’s Up?

Rude number plate rapped

An Australian woman was told to get rid of her personalised number plate because her name translates to a rude word.

Kristen Perry’s family and friends call her Kiki – which translates to "vagina" in Tagalog, a language used by Filipinos.

She received a letter from the Roads and Traffic Authority (RTA) in New South Wales demanding she show "just cause" for having the word emblazoned on her car, or the plate would be confiscated.

Kiki said: "At first I thought it was a joke, but then I realised it was actually quite serious and that my number plates would be taken off me if I didn’t respond appropriately."
