O/T New Car/Expired Temp. Tags...

Hey all,

bought a new 2004 f250 last month. I love it. My temp tag expired may 21st. They faxed me a letter stating that they were sorry and that If for any reason I got pulled over to show them the letter..

A friend is telling me that this is not a legal document and I can get a ticket... Anybody have any input?

Thanks.

yes you can get a ticket, but the cop that writes you needs to put away his jack boots and get a life. even if you do encounter said fascist the judge will probably not convict.

personally i would go to the dealer and demand to know what their malfunction is. they should be able to issue you a second set of temps. if there are still problems you may want to contact DMV or State Police.

good luck,

Assuming that ou get 30 days to register in Jersey. Keep all of the paperwork with you and if you get pulled over, just explain the mix up. You never know, there may be that one cop, trooper, sheriif, who just doesn't get it, but more than likely you'll be fine. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

AM I missing something? Here in indiana the only way a temp tag expires is if the date written on it passes. I am asuming that you have less than 30 days on your temp tag if you are miffed about it. But if it is over 30 days it is just time to register. But I couldn't imagine you complaining if that were the case.

jeff,

i think he's PO'd because the dealer is supposed to take care of the registration within that 30 day period and they have failed to do so despite the fact that i am sure they charged him an exorbitant processing fee.
