Always read the fine print. We bought Autism Awareness plates for the van last year when we got it. They were more expensive…actually way more expensive but it was for a good cause.
What I didn’t know was that they were almost 2.5 times more expensive to renew every year. I just found that out few minutes ago. Standard tags in Ohio are about $34 however, my Autism Awareness tags were almost $80 to renew today. It’s the same freakin sticker.
I just about had a stroke when she gave me the final price. I also had to renew my license this year as well, which I had forgotten about.
The moral of the story…..always read the fine print, even if it’s for a good cause.
Good to know since I also just got those plates. Oh well, it's a good cause & raises awareness.
Oops… Sorry about the sticker shock. That's one of the reasons I haven't gotten the autism awareness plate in my state yet. It's more expensive and you have to pay for it every year. You'd think that for a good cause, they'd only make you pay a fee for it once. (Or at least require NO fee; I guess that's too much to ask).
