When I bought my new car a few years ago I decided to buy new license plates.
My old plates were 14 years young pitted and ugly, and figured a new ride deserves new plates.
All was well for a couple of years then I noticed them starting to peel.
By the time I realized what was happening the five years had passed to get them replaced for free.
Now looking ragged I have no recourse but to spend the $40. to buy yet another set.
If you are caught with a plate that the police can’t read the cost is much higher.
The problem was traced back to the production of the plates in 2012.
To say the Ontario government was slow to rectify this issue is an understatement.
But the real crime is that instead of just giving new plates to those who have a registered bad plate, it is up to you to be proactive before the time limit is up.
Other provinces have simply replaced their defective plates, no matter the age.
No such luck in Ontario where the Wynne Liberals are using their defective plates to hose you for another $40.
Why should we be surprised?
Have you checked your electricity bill lately?
