It’s once again that time of year, time to renew the tag on my license plate. I tried to do this online again like I did last year, but the DMV website said no way, you need to have a smog check this year. Regardless, either way it costs me $500 bucks per year to keep my license plate tab updated.
The cost of living is higher here than back east and north in Michigan overall, but the license plate fee here is insane! In Michigan, the same plate renewal would be be one third or so of the cost, and NO smog check. Go figure… They really gotcha! We need and love our cars and trucks!
