Angry Expired license tabs

Just a reminder to all of you pulling your camper out of winter storage, especially if not storing it at home.
Here in Minnesota we get new license plate tabs in Febuary. Needless to say if the camper is being stored elsewhere the tabs don't get put on in February.
Well, today I pulled my camper out of storage and got about 2 miles down the road, and you guessed it, the friendly cop pulls me over because my last years tabs are still on the license plate.
My new tabs were home waiting to be attached but I did not even think about them when I picked up the camper this morning.
Now I am the not so proud owner of a ticket for expired tabs. Grrrrrrrrrrr!
People in Mn get their tabs when it is cold and trailers are stored for the winter. If you are in a state like ours, remember to put those tabs on the camper before hauling it anywhere. I forgot, and I earned myself a ticket.
Not so lucky me.

Picked mine up a couple weeks ago. Got all the way home and realized I didn't put the new tabs on yet. Lucky I didn't get ticketed.

Here that would be a "fix it" ticket where you just put them on and then drive to the DMV to prove you have them and they waive the fine. Or it would have been before California decided they needed your money...

I no longer have to worry about tags, I have antique plates on my 1985 CT-13

I have California PTI (Permanent Trailer Identification) plates. No tabs required. But then again, we don't have "Winter" here either.

Hi: Karalyn...We don't have tabs here!!! You buy your plate and keep it moovin' from trailer to trailer. It's just "The Ticket" .

In Fl you can get the ticket dropped once your prove you had had current tags waiting to be put on. Actually, the police can look it up in their car now and see online your are current and then send you on your way. Usually with a reminder not to forgot to put them on. Saves a trip to the courthouse.

i agree with melissa...seems to me that the officer could certainly have looked it up in his computer...you HAD already registered and paid....i'd fight that ticket, but that's just me. good luck!

We also get plates once and just have to keep it road worthy in Ontario
But we do have winter; week since last snow and we still have snow in the bush

Obviously it is a terrible crime to purchase tabs, then not put them on.

How about if you bought food at the grocery store, but didn't eat it. You could die!

Heh! Heh! Heh!

The states, counties and cities are broke and if they can get money from you they will.

Just like booze to an alcoholic, there's just never enough.
