Deep-sixing 666s

On May 1, 1991, the British Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency announced that it would no longer issue automobile license plates bearing the number 666. Cars bearing such plates, it seems, have been involved in too many accidents!

(Grossman, Wendy M.; "No More 666s," Skeptical Inquirer, 16:128, 1992.)

Comment. Recall that 666 is the "Number of the Beast" in the Bible.
