HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) _ Pennsylvania is eliminating registration stickers that motorists affix to their license plates starting in 2017.
The state Transportation Department anticipates the change will save more than $3 million in production and mailing costs. The savings will be used to purchase automated license plate readers which permit police to scan license plates to see if the vehicle is registered and has insurance.
Motorists will still need to renew their registrations and have their vehicles inspected.
Beginning Jan. 1, motorists who renew online will be permitted to print out a registration card.
