A Coon Rapids driver was on his way to a family barbeque in Shakopee and said he was surprised when he got ticketed recently for driving with expired tabs.
The man told the trooper he moved last year and didn’t get a renewal notice before his tabs expired April 1. The trooper noticed the addresses on his driver’s license and registration didn’t match, but gave him a $115 ticket anyway.
The man figured his “clean driving record” and the obvious mismatch in addresses meant he deserved a warning.
State law lets drivers avoid paying such fines if they can show they weren’t properly notified and if they promptly renewed after being cited. Our reader renewed and got a letter from the state acknowledging the wrong address.
Should he have been ticketed?
