Time for individuals to take some responsibility. They have been spoon-fed too long. I am tired of all the wailing and gnashing of teeth over this broke state trying to save a little taxpayer money by cutting the renewal notices for car registration.
When a person buys a car he/she takes on a responsibility to drive in accordance with the Rules of the Road and while they are operating that vehicle to have in their possession: 1) a valid driver’s license; 2) proof of insurance; 3) the vehicle registration. In regards to No. 3, that is the document used for re-registering the vehicle. It has an expiration date on it corresponding to the little month/year tag on your license plate. If you can’t use these things to know when you need to renew, you deserve to get fined.
And while I’m at it, the individual, working for the state, should have been fired on the spot for blaming the governor for not sending our the notices.
