Expired tags everywhere! #4672852

Maybe it's just my area, but I notice what I consider to be a large amount of cars running around on expired tags/plates. Just this morning the car in front of me had temp tags dated: 11/26/16 !!

I guess I could try to report it, but if cops aren't seeing this on the road and enforcing it, I highly doubt they're going to make a special trip to do so.

Seems like lost revenue to me.

Pretty surprising they made it that far. Seems a bit bold to me--that 16 can't be much larger!

Maybe they only drive during rush hour. It can be pretty easy to blend in.

Here in Pennsylvania -- they no longer have registration stickers starting 2017. You pay the registration fees & they send you your registration card for the glove box.

Connecticut hasn't had a registration date on the plates for years. A temp plate would be another issue.

But you still have plates, don't you? Coffee2

Same here - no stickers since 2010.

This seems to be rampant in Missouri, especially inside / around the city limits of Saint Louis, and before I looked at your location or the state I was wondering if this post was from someone in MO/STL.

There are at least two cars parked the street my apartment is on that have still have their temp (and long ago long expired) tags, but I feel like I see expired temp tags everywhere.

That's pretty normal here in the Cincy 'hood-don't worry, most of them don't have insurance nor a valid license either!

If that's the case, might be a good idea to use theft-proof screws on your license plate.
That way no one will swipe your plate.

To the OP:
1) Go ahead and try "to report" a car with an expired tag. You'll be treated with distain by any police dept.. They'd regard you as a rat.

2) You're not unreasonable with your concern. If they'd catch you or me for expired tags why not the other people? It is galling.

Don't try it here ... all patrol cars have automated plate readers and the officer doesn't even have to do anything ... they are alerted when expired tags are discovered and then they pull the vehicle over, issue the ticket, and arrange for towing to the compound. To get the vehicle out of the compound you will also have to pay for any unpaid parking tickets as well as the tow and compound fees. If you want to actually drive the vehicle out of the compound instead of taking them up on their offer to tow you somewhere to private property (on your dime, of course), you need proof of insurance and registration.

Don't forget you also get to go to court, or sign guilty and pay a moving violation fine. As with all traffic fines, failure to pay results in automatic jail time, and they do go around collecting people from time to time with warrants, or if you are stopped a second time you will go straight to the back of the car and off to jail unless you can pay the fine before the van leaves with the day's prisoners. Usually early afternoon, after the day's court proceedings are settled.

They also have vans that cruise the city streets reading parked vehicle plates, which then get towed to the compound, although you save the moving violation ticket.

In other words, bad idea to drive with expired tags, or park on public streets with them.

There is a grace period for transfers (the same owner can change the vehicle covered under existing registration/insurance but has 48 hours to do so) but not for new purchases or transfers between owners ... all vehicles need to be registered and insured before they can be on public roads.
