Anyway, one Googles and sees:

Now here’s what the gov’mint has to say on the topic:

So you might think that Travis talks out of his asphalt or that he really spreads a lot of the bituminous around or that UBER is garbage operation, but aside from that, help me out here Gentle Reader – can just anybody get a bad-ass looking metal tab from our DMV?

use upon a vehicle, they shall be attached to the vehicle for which
they were issued, one in the front and the other in the rear.
