Netizens chuckling over ‘BRA’ car plate


PETALING JAYA: An advertisement for car plate number bidding by the Road Transport Department (JPJ) has tickled some netizens’ funny bones.

On Sunday, the government agency uploaded a poster on its official Facebook page calling for bidding on the latest car plate series for Selangor, which was “BRA”.

A user in the comment section said: “I am here for the funny comments.”

Another netizen suggested “BRA91”, which read “Berapi” in Malay or “fiery”.

Meanwhile, other comments related the letters with women’s undergarments, “brassiere” or “bra”.

It prompted a user to suggest the agency skip the letters, which could lead to different derogatory meanings.

“Won’t JPJ skip car registration numbers that have a double meaning?” the user wrote.

The bidding will start tomorrow, and the results will be announced on July 4.

The public can visit https://jpjebid.jpj.gov.my to start bidding on their favourite car registration number combinations.
