Peeling license plates to be replaced

Your license plate that is peeling away will need to be replaced. According to Channel 3000 in Madison, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation is bringing back a program requiring it to replace plates ten or more years old. Approximately three million plates fit that description, and the oldest ones will be replaced first. Seeing the plates lose their reflective sheeting is becoming commonplace because a state program that automatically replaced the plates expired years ago. A new state law passed last year will put the practice back into place and in line with dozens of other states. If your plates are ten years old or older, your annual registration will include an extra $8 charge to replace them. If they are still legible, you can wait for the program to get running. If you cannot read what your plates say, you will have to go through the DOT’s website yourself to get new ones. If you don’t, you could get pulled over by police and be subject to a fine of over $150.
