There might be a new way to wean car addicts off their car buying behavior. That way is to simply have them experience a day at the DMV. Recently, I had the pleasure to go to the DMV and re-register my car because I never got the tags in the mail. Apparently State documents cannot be forwarded to a new address. Hence, if you ever move residences or offices, make sure that you contact the DMV and other state departments immediately to notify your change of address!
I only drive on weekends now since I take the bus to work (ladies love bus riders). I drive so little that I had no idea the tags never came for 3 months! Of course, the one day I do drive to work due to a dental appointment, a cop pulls me over for a “fix-it” ticket. “You know why I stopped you right?” Mr. Officer asks.
“Actually, I have no idea Officer,” I sincerely replied back. He gave me a ticket for expired tags and told me that if I went to the DMV and got new tags within 30 days, I wouldn’t have to pay the $276 fine, but only $25.
