MANCHESTER — More than four months after her vanity plates were recalled, Sherry Hourigan got them back.
Hourigan works as a Realtor in southern New Hampshire, working out of her car almost every day, she said. She found herself often too busy for a bathroom break on the road, and decided to apply for a vanity plate to reflect her reality: “IM2BZ2P.”
She got a matching plate for her motorcycle, “2BZ2P.”
Not long after, Hourigan heard about another New Hampshire driver, who appealed the recall of her vanity plates to Gov. Chris Sununu through a mutual friend and was allowed to keep her vanity plate, “PB4WEGO.”
Hourigan called Gov. Sununu’s office to appeal the decision in her case. In mid-October, Hourigan said, she got calls from the DMV and the governor’s office saying she would get her plates back, and got temporary plates a few days later.
The new metal plates finally arrived on Saturday.
“So glad ‘too busy to pee’ is back on the road,” Hourigan wrote in an email.
