O,0,I, 1? License plate confusion’s costing some Texas drivers money with cashless tolls

Toll troubles are driving Stephen Heyman mad. “The problem is they can’t get my license plate right,” he said from his bill-covered kitchen table in Buda.

Last December, he bought a specialty license plate for his wife that reads: “QIDOC.” It stands for “chi doctor. “She’s an acupuncturist,” said Heyman. “So, qi is chi, which is the main energy portion of acupuncture.”

The plate, however, turned out to be a pain. That’s because toll scanners have trouble reading it.
