表情符号上车牌?听上去很酷有木有!在澳大利亚昆士兰州,只要花几百美元,就能让你的车牌变得拉风又可爱。不过,目前商家只提供5个表情符号供司机选择,你会选择哪个呢?

 

Emojis are usually reserved for text messages or chatting online, but now some drivers will be able to add them onto their car number plates.

表情符号通常出现在短信息或网上聊天内容中,不过如今,一部分司机还可以把表情符号用在车牌上。

In an unprecedented move, drivers in Queensland will soon be able to add the much-loved symbols onto their vehicle plates from March 1st.

从3月1日起,澳大利亚昆士兰州的司机将能把这些备受喜爱的表情符号加到车牌上,这是史无前例的举措。

The unique idea is being rolled out by Personalised Plates Queensland (PPQ) and will allow motorists to choose from five emojis.

昆士兰个性化车牌公司想出了这个独特创意,并提供了5个表情符号供司机挑选。

Drivers can pick from either a laugh out loud face, a wink face, a sunglasses-wearing emoji, a heart-eyes expression, or simply just a smile.

司机可以从大笑、眨眼、戴太阳镜、爱心眼、微笑这五个表情符号中选择。

Notably only the positive appearing emojis have been made available by the company.

值得注意的是,该公司提供的表情符号都是积极正面的。

'For quite some time we've seen that you can support your favourite team or your favourite town with a symbol on your number plate,' RACQ Dr Rebecca Michael told 7News.

昆士兰州皇家汽车俱乐部的瑞贝卡·迈克尔博士告诉7News网站说:“过去很长一段时间,我们见过人们用车牌上的符号来支持最爱的球队或小镇。”

'And using an emoji is no different,' she added.

她说:“车牌上加表情符号和这些做法没什么不同。”

But drivers will have to pay for the privilege of adding an emoji to their number plate.

不过司机们得花上一笔钱,才能享有把表情符号加到车牌上的特权。

The emoji additions will set a driver back anything from $160 to $500.

在车牌上加表情符号需要司机花费160美元到500美元(1080到3378元人民币)。

The new idea has been met with a mixed reaction, with some people taking to social media to share their thoughts.

'HAHAHAHAHA Queensland is introducing emoji personalised number plates. This state cracks me up some days,' wrote one user.

另一名用户发问道:“这是什么蠢主意……”

While others appeared more excited about adding emojis to their number plates.

但是也有人对于把表情符号加到车牌上感到兴奋。

'You'll have to get new plates guys,' wrote one.
