Vehicle Registration Stickers Eliminated in Pennsylvania

Beginning December 31, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) will no long be issuing vehicle registration stickers. Drivers still need to have their vehicles registered, but starting January 1, 2017, vehicles will not need to display a vehicle registration sticker on their license plate. Due to current license plate reader technology, paper vehicle stickers are no longer necessary, and eliminating them will save taxpayers $1 million per year. For Donlen customers enrolled in AutoTag, Donlen acts as the DMV in Pennsylvania, and processes and mails renewals directly from our corporate office to ensure that your vehicle registration is renewed on time.

Driver’s Corner

cars in snow

For many people across the country, winter means very dangerous driving conditions with snow, sleet, and freezing temperatures increasing your risks on the road. To help ensure everyone reaches their destinations safely this winter, the National Safety Council has compiled a comprehensive list of tips for drivers.

Those tips include checking the weather before you leave, preparing your car for winter by having a mechanic check vehicle systems such as the ignition, brakes, and battery, as well as important reminders of how to drive to avoid a crash. Drivers can avoid collisions during winter by accelerating and decelerating slowly, increasing their following distance to 8-10 seconds, and never using cruise control in wintery conditions. Read all of the National Safety Council’s tips here.

And Finally

Have a great holiday season, and safe travels.
