HARRISBURG – Responding to the growing number of residents dealing with illegible license plates on their vehicles, Rep. Martin Causer (R-Cameron/McKean/Potter) is hosting an event to help get those plates replaced at no cost.
The event will be held on Thursday, Oct. 26, from 4-7 p.m. at the Lewis Run Volunteer Fire Department, 46 Main St., Lewis Run.
“State law requires PennDOT to replace license plates that are deemed illegible at no cost to the vehicle owner,” Causer said. “I encourage residents whose plates are worn and difficult to read to take advantage of the opportunity to get the replacement process started.”
A registration plate is deemed illegible when one or more numbers or letters cannot be recognized from 50 feet or if the registration plate shows any blistering, peeling, discoloration or loss of reflectivity.
The McKean County Sheriff’s Office will be on hand to view driver’s plates, and if the plates are deemed illegible, paperwork to start the replacement process will be completed. Those who plan to attend should bring their vehicle with the affected plate attached, along with their unexpired PA driver’s license and current vehicle registration card.
Registration is requested and may be completed online at www.RepCauser.com/Events or by calling Causer’s Bradford office at 814-362-4400.
