A new traffic initiative from South Simcoe police begins today
South Simcoe Police will be stopping more cars on the road in the coming months but not necessarily to issue tickets.
As part of a new initiative, officers will be stopping cars with illegible plates.
Plates that have the paint peeling off will be pulled over and drivers will get advice on how to replace them.
Ontario licence plates are covered by a 5 year manufacturers warranty, meaning defective plates will be replaced for free.
Drivers must take both plates, the ownership, proof of insurance and identification to any Service Ontario office.
They will then have their plates replaced free of charge, and the validation sticker reissued.
