An Australian woman was told to remove her personalised number plates which bear her nickname ‘Kiki’, following a complaint that the word is Filipino for a part of the female anatomy.
Kristen Perry, known as Kiki by her friends and family received a letter from the Roads and Traffic Authority (RTA) in New South Wales demanding that she show “just cause” for using the plates, otherwise they would be confiscated.
The RTA said it had received a complaint from a member of the Filipino community because Mrs Perry’s nickname Kiki translates to “vagina” in Tagalog.
