Perks for tough jobs are necessary to keep those jobs filled. Hell, I'd be OK with waiving fees for military folks entirely.

You guys have it pretty good with the fees, though. Here in California, we just elected a super-majority of Democrats to state government, so they now have the power to implement anything they like. They are proposing to TRIPLE our vehicle fees. That will take me to about $350 for my 1996 Chevy K1500. The poor bastards with the big diesels are looking at $2,100 per year.

I wish. I'm home waiting for the phone to ring. I should probably go to the shop and work on the bikes instead of hanging out in here.

Rediculous.
Four or Five years ago I went into the DMV to renew the plates on my boat trailer. They had expired during the winter when I am not using the boat so I hadn't noticed. I've got my pen out to write the check and she quotes me a similar ridiculous number. I hand her back the tags and say "No way." Haven't been back since. I have two trailers that I simply run with expired plates. (Plates are mounted far enough under the trailers that I bend the bottom of them under like I have backed over something...can't see the year tag that way.)

I figure that by now the fine would be far, far less than the extortion they are charging!

Hey, I'm not proud of it, but have limits to my willingness to pay what in my view amounts to an illegal tax passed by people I voted against!

I wonder what the fine is for expires or no plates. Hmmm. I am going to Montana this spring an will probably pick up a permanent plate for the trailer. Not worth 80 bucks a year for a 300 dollar trailer that sees 2000 miles a year use if that.

You guys could also leave the state in protest like that big nosed actor Geard Depardieu.

Sure, whatever. It's ok to voice an opinion about taxes.
