100 License Plates banned by the California DMV

Today, the California DMV released the following list of 100 banned license plates. The list, accumulated over the past few years, has some obvious offenders. Others, like "3MTA3," are a little trickier to decode. How many of them can you translate?

We've made plates of our twenty favorite banned California license plates — peruse them above — and then head over to the last page at the end (or, if you don't want to scroll through the plates, click the little double-arrow thing a few times and then click on the last image in the gallery).

Thanks to NBC Bay Area!
