    Zero to hero

    As I sat in rain-drenched traffic on my commute home this evening, I wondered about the rules governing vanity license plates. For example, say you want a plate that reads: AUTO. If that's already taken, can you apply for AUT0 with a zero instead? Technically they're two different plates, but would the DMV office allow this? What would happen if bystanders witness a hit-and-run and mistakenly report AUT0 for AUTO?
