I don’t think we’re going to see any complaints if or when this bill passes.

Republican State Rep. Mike Maddock of Milford has proposed House Bill 5250, which would eliminate the 1-inch square stickers that we put on our plates every year. His main reason for this is because he essentially said they’re useless, in a release here’s what else he said to say:

Every year, hardworking taxpayers are forced to apply for antiquated, tiny stickers to glue to their license plate,” said Maddock, in a news release Monday.  “The point of these irritating tiny tabs is to show that your license plate is up to date.  Yet technology allows police officers to instantly verify whether or not your license plate is current. That tab means nothing to them.”

He went on to say that if we want to shorten the wait times at the Secretary of State, “this one step will free up millions of hours wasted standing in the line at your Secretary of State office to get unneeded annual license tabs.”

Personally, I wouldn’t be opposed to just dropping the price on these things. While the rest of the world is sending coupons and freebies for your birthday, the state of Michigan is sending you a bill for $111 to renew the stickers on your license plate.

Do you think it’s a good idea? How long was your longest wait time at the Secretary Of State?
