An ounce of prevention is worth avoiding a $65 parking ticket for an expired registration sticker.
Joe was walking to his chariot one morning and feeling good about life. He enjoyed his usual morning cup of coffee and was headed to play some golf. As he approached his car, a little birdie (not the golf kind) tweeted in his ear (not the Twitter kind) to check out the registration sticker affixed to his windshield.
He listened to the tweet, and Joe’s dismay, his registration was about to expire in two days. Yikes!
Joe needs his car every day and regularly parks on the street when visiting his customers. Joe had visions of bucks (many dollars) moving from his pocket to the Evil Empire.
Is there anything Joe can do to prevent this economic disaster?
Temporary Registration Certificate
- Renew his registration online
- Download a temporary registration certificate
- Display the temporary certificate and the current (about to expire) registration sticker
Joe spent five minutes and bought himself Evil Empire protection for ten days.
When you’re right, fight!
Our excellent customer, David, took all the proper steps to acquire and display his get-out-of-jail-free temporary registration certificate but still got a parking ticket.
Here’s what the temporary registration certificate looks like.
I recommend affixing the temporary registration certificate to your windshield directly above the current (about to expire or just expired) registration sticker.
Remember, the temporary registration certificate is only valid for ten days. Make sure to attach your valid registration sticker within those ten days.
I realize that registration or inspection sticker renewals aren’t fronts of mind. You may wish to set some reminders to go off to prompt you to check the status of the new sticker.
Don’t be stunned by sticker shock.
