I'm honestly surprised that it took this long for us to have to use plates at all. I always found it odd that we got effectively illegible stickers at all- especially with all the drunk folks who ride scooters because they aren't allowed to drive cars due to DUIs. The 2017-2019 sticker especially, dark blue with black text. It's pretty absurd.
But eh, as long as it doesn't cost more than $40 for two years then it's all good. We're already saving far more than that just because of how little gas we run haha
