Even the most vigorous spring cleaning can’t undo years of wear and tear.
If that wear and tear happens to be on a Pennsylvania license plate, an upcoming event will help motorists bring their vehicle up to code free of charge.
State Rep. Stephenie Scialabba will host a Hard-to-Read License Plate event from 2-4 p.m. Friday, June 2 at the Cranberry Township Police Department, 2525 Rochester Road.
A license plate is illegible when one or more numbers or letters cannot be recognized from 50 feet away, or if the plate shows signs of blistering, peeling, discoloration, or loss of reflectivity. A $100 fine could be issued for the offense.
During the June 2 event, officers will have the required PennDOT MV-44 form to start the replacement process. There is no fee for this service.
Scialabba will also host a similar event from 2-4 p.m. Friday, June 2 at the Jackson Township Police Department, 140 Magill Road, Zelienople.
To register, call Scialabba’s office at 724-772-3110.
