It’s official, the millennials are taking over.
If there’s one thing that has come to define the smartphone-wielding, social media-loving youth of today, it’s the emoji.
And soon you’re going to start seeing the little characters in an unlikely new place: vehicle number plates.
The unusual move is set to be rolled out by Personalised Plates Queensland (PPQ) from next month, allowing drivers to adorn their number plates with a touch of emotion.
Royal Automobile Club of Queensland (RACQ) spokeswoman Rebecca Michael said it was no different from allowing drivers to express themselves with other available themes like their favourite footy team.
“For quite some time we’ve seen that you can support your favourite team or your favourite town with a symbol on your number plate,” Dr Michael told 7News Brisbane.
“And using an emoji is no different.”
But before your mind goes straight to the gutter, no, you won’t be able to completely replace the letters and numbers on your number plate with an eggplant or smiling poo emoji.
The smartphone symbols won’t be included in rego numbers and are simply decorative.
