We’ve Been reporting on this blog for more than a week, that a key provision about penalties for driving in the state of Texas without a license plate displayed in 2012, no longer has any penality, which makes enforcement of the law impossible.
We sent out a twitter reminder to motorists living in or driving through that state, that this was the case.
Without any prompting, the Texas Motor Vehicle Department responded in kind to tell us we’re incorrect. You be the judge for yourself.
@TXDMV’s unsolicited response
@TxDMV’s Final Response
As of 4 p.m. Central time on Jan 3rd, we’ve seen no further answers from either @TxDMV or @TxDOT on this major issue facing their
ticketing/revenue raising traffic enforcement and penalty enforcement.
They’re definitely in a bit of a panic if they’re searching Twitter for anyone who is pointing the flaws in their admittedly complicated Transportation bill which was so long, that a key provision was omitted before it went to a final vote.
Will Texans begin to challenge this unenforceable law? You can bet that more than a few will.
TxDPS, be on notice that there’s no penalty for violating this law, so you’re potentially wasting a lot of time pulling people over who aren’t displaying their license plates.
