I won't personalize my vehicle where it is easily identifiable by anyone other than law enforcement. No bumper stickers, no 'pro this, anti that', pro-life, anti- whatever... Someone has to take me to dinner to get that information. My call sign doesn't go on my truck, regardless of how proud I am to have it. It doesn't make me feel any better about my life when I 'announce' to the world my causes, and I'm definitely not going to put my FCC call sign on my truck so any whacko can look me up in the database and visit me at will. If I'm even in the position to give away most of my income, it will be anonymously. I do have my Army vet license plate on my truck as a sense of personal pride, and the 2 times I've been pulled over with them on, they shake my hand and tell me to carry on. I'm firmly in the walk quietly and carry a big stick camp. All people know when they see my truck is I'm ex-military and I'm towing a 'house'.
When a personalized license plate can be easily traced to your home address, I'd say it's probably not worth it.
