Protest the New York state license plate fees

Filed under: Life,News — pauljlane @ 1:45 pm

New York state, in another “eff-you” to its residents, is about to charge people — twice! — for license plates next year.

As of April 1, New York wants to charge every driver $25 per vehicle to get new plates. And then if you want the same number, you have to pay another $20 for the privilege.

What an absolute joke and abomination of what public servants should be. Is anyone in Albany actually desirous to keep people here? Our leaders sure don’t seem to act that way.

Click here to sign a petition protesting the move.

  2. I feel the government is again swindling us out of money!! The money will not trickle back down to us! The same goes for Civil Service tests–$30 in Nassau county–and you don’t get results for months!! The plates were only changed 9 years ago and DO NOT NEED TO BE CHANGED!! I also am not fond of the plainness of the new plates. Just a money maker for the execs!! I know first hand about State & county government from being only a temp in Nassau County for 5 years.

  3. MY HUSBAND IS ONE OF THEMANY WHO HAVE LOST THEIR JOBS THIS YEAR.IF YOU WERE TO FORCE NEW PLATES ON US, I FEAR WE WOULD BE UNABLE TO AFFORD IT. THE CUT IN PELL GRANTS HAS MADE IT IMPOSSIBLE FOR HIM TO OBTAIN CRUCIAL TRAINING TO LAND A NEW JOB IN HIS FIELD.
