License Plate “NULL”
There was a DefCon talk by someone with the vanity plate “NULL.” The California system assigned him every ticket with no license plate: $12,000.
Although the initial $12,000-worth of fines were removed, the private company that administers the database didn’t fix the issue and new NULL tickets are still showing up.
The unanswered question is: now that he has a way to get parking fines removed, can he park anywhere for free?
And this isn’t the first time this sort of thing has happened. Wired has a roundup of people whose license places read things like “NOPLATE,” “NO TAG,” and “XXXXXXX.”
