CONCORD (AP) — The New Hampshire Division of Motor Vehicles is hoping to start processing more than 2,000 backlogged vanity plate applications in the next 60 days.

The DMV put vanity plates on hold after the state’s highest court said the rules governing the tags were too vague. An interim rule that became effective Monday prohibits language that relates to sex, violence, drugs, gangs or bigotry.

Division of Motor Vehicles Director Richard Bailey said his office usually gets 300 to 400 vanity plate applications every month. There’s been a small increase in the applications lately.

Bailey said currently, there are about 1.5 million automobiles registered in New Hampshire, 162,000 of which have vanity plates.

Vanity plate applications generate approximately $6.6 million in revenue for the state each year.
