Motorist sends CY a message via her license plate

It was fifth time lucky for a motorist who has succeeded in registering her car with a license plate that is even more eye-catching than the vehicle’s orange paint. 

The plate, which reads “N0 CY”, gets a thumbs up from everyone who sees it, said the car’s owner, surnamed Chow, news website hk01.com reported Tuesday.

Chow first filed an application for the license plate in September via the personalized vehicle registration marks (PVRM) scheme.

Under the scheme, applicants draw lots, and the winners can bid for their favorite marks in an open auction.

Chow was finally awarded the mark at an auction in March after having applied four times without success.

She said she wants Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying, often referred to by his initials, CY, to know that those who dislike him are not confined to the less privileged in society.

It is her way of protesting against the suppression of the freedom of speech by Leung’s administration, Chow said.

She is hoping that “N0 CY1” and “N0 CY2” will soon also be seen on the road.
