Default Attn: Michigan People - Tab Renewal Fine and other new fines

Well...someone just sent me an email about a new fine if you don't have your tabs renewed by the FIRST day of the month they are due. So, since my tab says MAR, if I don't have them renewed by March 1, 2004, it's a $10 fine...per tab.

Just a warning. Here is more new fine information:

How about this one:

If you're stopped and you can't present proof of insurance, you
must pay a $300 fine, even if you later prove you do have insurance.

I heard about the 300 dollar insurance thing too. I emailed by congressmen about this when it has in the legislature, and they basically told me to screw off.

Subject:Senate Bill 509


Dear Andrew:

Thank you for writing in regard to your thoughts on the Michigan Drivers Responsibility Program.

In the last eight years, over 1,800 Michigan residents have died in motor vehicle accidents caused by "bad drivers." The human toll on the families, plus increased insurance premiums to all Michigan motorists as a result of the accidents and deaths caused by bad drivers is tremendous. Senate Bill 509 will go far in curtailing traffic accidents and fatalities caused by bad drivers by creating a financial disincentive to those who currently drive irresponsibly. If passed, the legislation will assess all drivers with seven points, a $100 fee and an additional $50 for each point over seven. The fees, which will be assessed by the Michigan Secretary of State, will be on top of fines already required by the courts for the payment of traffic tickets.

Legislation similar to the one proposed, was passed by the State of New Jersey some time ago. It is reported that fatalities caused by bad drivers have decreased by 24% since the inception of the law. I am hopeful that if this bill is passed, Michigan will see similar decreases in bad driving and fatalities.

Again, thank you for writing to express your thoughts.

Respectfully yours,

Ken Sikkema
Senate Majority Leader

That fine is okay with me. Stick it to the drunk drivers.

I have also heard about the $300 no proof of insurance law... I believe I was listining to Mitch Album on the radio when I heard of it.

Utter BS.

I like how A_Train's canned letter from his congressman refers to "driving responsibly" in the reply. What the hell do driving while intoxicated and not having proof of insurance have anything to do with one another? Above that, how is a $300 fine for a missing slip of paper going to curtail fatalaties and accidents

Yeah, I also have a hard time seeing the connection between the letter and the $300 fine.

Oh well, at least we don't have front plates or emissions.

A_Train,
At least you heard back from your Senator. I wrote mine and heard nothing. Maybe I laid it on a little thick about driving school instead of higher fines. My neighbor works for my Senator no less. $50 a point for anyone with over 7 points.

Don't blame me. I didn't vote for her.

Maybe she is trying to get some extra $ to have her mole lopped off?

It can't be the first of the month its due itís you birth date. The fee is only if you try to renew you tags late I just got mine and no fee when it started last month. Birthday is the 24th got new tags yesterday and paid no fee. I asked the lady and she said only if I tried to get them after the 24th would I have to pay the fee. I like it people should get tags on time and not be late it's also only $10. Ok I like it cuz the money goes to roads and Iím a Civil Engineer so that means more work for me.

I was kinda surprised a few weeks ago when I asked my insurance agent how much more insurance would be on a '99 Vette; $60 more than right now every 6 mo. I asked about a '00; $10 more. I guess the '00 has a better safety rating. I thought it would be $$$ more though.

A friend that stopped by and I were talking about the new fees. He said its after your b-day that it goes up too.

The new fees are gay.

I used to never renew my tabs/register my car. It's like $200 for a new car!

Sure enough, I'd get pulled over, but that'd be 6 months down the line. You had to pay a $40 fine but they pro-rate your registration, so you actually save a couple bucks.

Can't do that anymore...

Wow... that is exactly what my friend's Dad does. He swears by it. Guess that's what the fine is trying to prevent...
