If the paint on your license plate is peeling, hard to read or losing its reflectivity, you will want to get that replaced. Why? Because you could be subject to a $100 fine.
That damaged plate can be replaced for free when a law enforcement officer or a mechanic authorized to do inspections determines it is illegible. On Aug. 13, State Rep. Anita Kulik is also hosting special replacement events in Coraopolis and Carnegie.
If you are unable to attend Kulik’s event, you can still apply for a free standard registration replacement plate, by obtaining from the PennDOT website an MV46 form and taking it to an inspection station or a MV44 form that would be processed by a law enforcement agent.
Once you have the form filled out you should sign and return either form in order to receive a replacement registration plate, free of charge.
Kulik’s Aug. 13 license plate replacement events are from 10 to 11:30 a.m. at the Coraopolis Police Department, 1301 4th Ave. and from 1:30 to 3 p.m. at the Carnegie Police Department Car Cruise on East Main between Washington and Elk streets.
Those interested should bring a valid driver’s license and registration card to either event.
For more information, call Kulik’s office at (412) 264-4250.
