Expired Registration Stickers - To Remove or Not To Remove That is the Question?

Expired Registration Stickers - To Remove or Not To Remove That is the Question?

Since the beginning of 2017 Pennsylvania drivers no longer need registration stickers put onto their vehicles license plate. Recently we have heard that some officials are encouraging you to remove them, especially if they are expired.  The reason being is that out-of-state police officers have been pulling over drivers. At the end of last year, PennDOT stopped issuing the stickers to help save taxpayer dollars. Now drivers just need a registration card.  PennDOT said that they did alert out-of-state police departments to the change, but some drivers are still getting stopped. I didn't know that you were supposed to take the old stickers off?  I didn't remember reading that when I renewed my registration in February of this year, they just said that you would not get a new one to put on your license plate. I tried to take them off the other day, and guess what - it's not easy. Jack Williams is going to start to alert our customers that there are expired registration stickers on their license plate and it may be in your best interest to try and remove them.  Jack Williams will not remove them, but if you get a small a small scraper and a little bit of brake cleaner they should come right off. Pennsylvania State Police also say that if you are pulled over when you are  out-of-state for your expired registration sticker, explain to the officer that Pennsylvania now does not issue the license plate stickers and show him or her your registration paperwork.
