It may seem insignificant to everyone outside of Libya, but this small 4inch by 2 inch word on the back of their licenses plates ''gots to go.'' Libyans, ever creative, have done a few things to cover up the phrase of the former regime. Most widely used is the spray paint like above, others have used stickers with the independence flag.
The third variation is one that I dont really understand. Apparently (accuracy may be debated but multiple sources have told me) some go to Tunisia or other places and have plates made that just say ''Libya.''
As far as I understand, I may be wrong, but they aren't government issued. Its not that big of a deal as license plates aren't really important in Libya. Half the cars dont even have them and its not like they collect an annual registration fee for a decal. This will segway into a bigger conversation Im not having but the defaced license plates serve, at least for me, as a lasting sign of rebellion.
