Lost my plate...

Stupid Currency Exchange, stupid State of Illinois.

When I did the track weekend at Putnam on April 5th and 6th I brought both SVs and kept the license plate on the one. Well, the damn thing had a crack in it from bending back and forth ten million times. It flew off and it's probably chopped into ten million peices by the mower at Putnam by now. Anyway, I go to the currency exchange to renew my sticker and tell them I lost my plate and I need a new one. So the girl charges me for the sticker and tells me it will either take 3 months to get the exact plate number I have or I can just get a random number. I'm like, OK, I'll just get a random number and its a 30 dollar charge for the new plate. But she says I have to buy another sticker. She said the state requires me to renew my lost plate and buy a new sticker for the new random number plate. WHY?!?!?! Why do I have to buy 2 fucking stickers? There has got to be something wrong here. Has anyone else lost their plate and this happened or are these fuck sticks trying to pull something over on me?

Maybe this is a sign from God that he doesn't want me riding on the street this season. I don't know...

I actually lost my old plate riding back from Putnam somewhere on the highway.

The DMV told me the same thing. I was a broke college student and couldn't afford to do things the right way, so I rode the rest of the season without a plate.

Surprisingly, I never got pulled over. Bought a new one over the winter.

Report it stolen forget about renewing it and get another.

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

No shit huh? 2 stickers? That's pretty dumb. Anyone want to buy a sticker? I'll make you a deal and trade you for a case of beer.

Thats a good question. When Johnny law dog pulls you over does he check to make sure the sticker number matches the plate number?

In order to get the sticker, you have to renew your plates, so if your plates are up to date, I'm guessing no one would notice.

But, if/when a cop runs your plates, they will come back expired and I'm guessing it will be questioned why you have a new sticker but expired plates.

No idea, I think when he runs the plate it comes back as having the registration up to date or not, the sticker is just backup evidence if the comp doesn't go through.

So the extra sticker really is worthless then?

it is illegal. They register your plate as renewed when you buy the sticker. If someone buys the sticker from you when they go to renew next year they will have to buy the previous year's sticker as well as the new one (and a late fee to boot)

Well, Jenny Law only checks if the expiration date on the sticker doesnt match up to the expiration date that comes up on the computer when she runs the plate. ***So if youre driving a 07 Dodge and I run your plate and it shows me the plate is valid until 6/08 and yet I see a sticker on your car reading 09/08, I'm going to check the sticker and see that small imprinted license plate # that the sticker is supposed to match up to and then go run that license plate # and see it registers to a 03 Chevy and then start asking you Q's from there.***

The renewal stickers now have your actual license plate numbers in small print on the sticker. That has helped catch people in a bs story about their sticker a couple times already!

I say just report it lost or stolen if you want and get new plates.

If you lost a sticker or had it stolen, it would be good, but if your plate isn't up to date, I can't see it helping. I guess it would be better than riding around with an expired sticker as it is less noticeable, but if your plates are run and you get pulled over, you're going to have to explain where the sticker came from and I can't think of a believable reason as to why you would have expired plates with a valid sticker.

EDIT: Didn't realize they had your plates on them now. Good luck explaining that if you get busted.

With any license plate, even if you renewed your plates and they are up to date, you are still required to display the current valid registration sticker. When a cop runs your plate, he/she can see if it is valid but you must also have the current valid sticker displayed in the upper right corner of the plate as well or Officer Grumpy can legally issue you a citation.

Good deal, thanks for the response guys.

It's kinda funny, my plate expired in December of 2006 and now that it's '08, the tags are almost the same color, a little model paint turned that 6 into an 8 rather nicely... legal enough for now.

I'm headed to the DMV this afternoon to transfer the title and get new tags. Being legal is fun!!!

This is only true if you get you sticker from the state. But if you walk into a currency exchange and get a renewed plate stick it doesn't have your plate # on the sticker. Trust me I know the loophole

Is the price the same if you go to the DMV or currency exchange? I always goto the DMV.

I told you to just make sure you had your registration on you and if you got pulled over, tell them it must have broke and fell off. Shit, you said the top half inch of the plate was still there. That's good enough unless you get a warning from a copper.

The 2 spots of the plate that the bolts go through are still there. The rest broke off. I have all my registration but It's just asking to get pulled over riding around without a plate.
