Auto Correct: License Plates
Have you seen the multitude of specialty license plates you can get for your vehicle nowadays? You can ones that support NASCAR, schools, animals, the list is tremendous. (The MPB plate is of course the best.) Don’t forget about antique vehicle plates! We’ve got the Harrison County Tax Collector on our show today to tell us about them. Coach answers questions too.
Hyundai is issuing a major recall for a disturbing problem: exploding seat belt pretensioners. This time around, the safety order is for the automaker’s Venue subcompact SUV-like hatchback.
You can find out if your car has a past recall by going to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s website: https://www.nhtsa.gov/recalls and inputting your VIN number. Or find their SaferCar app.
News: After California in 2018 and Arizona in 2019, Michigan is the third state to legalize digital license plates. The plate can be switched between light and dark modes, there's space for a personalized banner message at the bottom of the rectangle. Renewing registration can be done through an app. The plate can display public safety announcements like Amber Alerts. They contain GPS and telematics transponders, so a vehicle can be located — one lost in a parking lot or one that's stolen, for instance. https://www.autoblog.com/2022/06/13/michigan-legalizes-digital-license-plates/
