Nebraska Driver Paints Registration Sticker on License Plate, Cops Have None of It



Kudos on the artwork, but sucks about the ticket.

We get it, car ownership can be expensive and time-consuming. On top of car payments and gas, drivers must budget for insurance, parking, regular maintenance, and unexpected repairs. Another expense people typically forget to budget for comes courtesy of Uncle Sam: vehicle registration. One Nebraska driver, however, took matters into his own literal hands by hand-painting his own registration sticker instead of ponying up for a proper tag.

According to Fox News, a Nebraska State Trooper pulled over the unidentified driver on Interstate 80 on Monday when he spotted the DIY "stickers." The not-so-bad artwork indicated that the plates were good until May 2020. As Nebraska State Patrol wisely pointed out on Facebook: "Art is great and no doubt it takes talent. However, that talent does not amount to actually having valid vehicle registration."

In the UK we no longer have a visible marker for annual road tax (our equivalent I believe).

They just use the database.

In the US, Pennsylvania has also abandoned stickers. I suspect that many other states have also done that or are in the process of doing so.

In college in the 1960s (I started as an infant), a friend good at drafting made his own TX inspection sticker. From 10 feet, undetectable. Never got caught.
