License plate sticker renewals trending down statewide

Posted by wlpo on January 5, 2016

(AP) – Have you checked to see if your license plate sticker isn’t out of date? The Secretary of State’s Office says fewer drivers renewed their license plate stickers in November and December, after the state announced it would stop mailing out reminders to save money.

License plate sticker renewals fell 19 percent in November compared with November 2014. Roughly 302,000 stickers were renewed in December as of Dec. 28, as opposed to about 475,000 for all of December 2014.

Keep in mind you have to pay a $20 fee to renew past the due date to go on top of the $101 renewal fee plus possible traffic tickets for having an expired sticker.
