The 11-99 “CHP” Foundation: An Embarrassment to the State of California – A License to Speed in 2017Tuesday, April 18th, 2017
This outfit got a lot of criticism, so the CHP made them take the letters “CHP” off of their infamous license plate holders and then they said they’d stop isuing them, but it appears as if this program is still going strong in 2017.
Most of the these license plate holders I see these days are fake anyway. And even if you bought a “real” one on ebay, you were (or you are, IDK) supposed to display your 11-99 FOUNDATION MEMBERSHIP card or secret decoder ring or whatever whenever you get pulled over for speeding in your speedy luxury car. (You know, IDK how this system was supposed to work in the first place. How can you look at it and not think, “Corruption, corruption?“)
Anyway, fake or real, what these license plate holders appear to be saying is, “I like to drive fast in California.” And if I can figure that out, CA’s peace officers can figure that out as well.
Sometimes, I just don’t know.
How to Stick It To The Man (Our SFMTA) with an OREGON License Plate – ONE SIMPLE TRICK! – But BewareThursday, April 6th, 2017
Let’s see if we can’t interpolate this abandoned SFMTA / MUNI / DPT citation here.
What’s this, an Oregon license plate? Well, that’s going to make it tough on the SFMTA to cite or tow you (depending) for something like expired registration, right? And that’s just for starters. Like, say you don’t ever pay your tickets, you just laugh and toss them down on the street – how is our SFMTA going to get the CA DMV to help collect money during annual registration time? It can’t. And what’s this, it’s hard to even ID your car because you’ve covered over the Vehicle Identification Number? Clever girl. Except…
If you piss off the wrong SFMTAPCO, you just might get towed for covering over your VIN.
AND, once you get five tickets and you don’t pay them, you will get towed, with a quickness. And then you’re going to have to pay off all your old tickets and late fees before you can get your ride back.
And of course, if you’re now living in Frisco, you need to get CA plates very quickly anyway, for various reasons.
OTOH, if you’re heading back home soon and never coming back, I suppose you might get away with parking almost wherever whenever you want for a short period of time.
Choose wisely. as this is a risky game…
Every day would be Christmas, every night would be New Year’s Eve, if only your ride had a little unauthorized LPC:
Long time ago I talked with an IT manager at the state DMV – he said they had to make sure that three-letter combinations like S-E-X and A-S-S couldn’t ever be used on a CA license plate. But I guess 666, the number of the beast, is A-OK? And he was like, sure, no prob. So On It Goes
