The people going around without current registration are highly likely to also be uninsured, and to just take off if involved in an accident.
I can’t drive for 15 minutes without seeing cars with dealer plates, the ones that just advertise the dealer and should all be gone since back in March, since you are supposed to have real plates within 90 days, and the new paper plates went in effect back in January.
A little more attention is needed to spot expired tags, but basically there should only be 2 year colors on cars, but again, pay attention from the passenger seat and you see a rainbow of colors in a few minutes. So some of these cars haven’t been registered in years. When they catch these cars, many also have other issues that make them unsafe to drive, so they are towed. Things like tires not just bald but worn down into the belts, etc.
They should do that at the winco store in Lancaster pretty sure mist that go there don’t have current anything they should go clean that dump up.
Mo money, Mo money, Mo money. Yes I understand all that but how was this protecting the safety and well being of the public? That’s the part I missed. That areas is also low income so they gonna give people who can’t afford to correct the things that would probably be fixed if they could afford it citations they can’t afford and clog up already clogged court calenders then say we need to build another courthouse and turn the current one into a day spa for judges on one for and the other floors will house the new programs all the people who can’t afford it will be ordered to complete. Man that almost sounds like something rexy poo poo would have come up with.
Or should I be asking what the methamphetamine-crackhead collaboration thinking is this seriously? I didn’t think they even made dope that good anymore. Oh maybe somebody been cleaning out the evidence room and come across something from a real old case
