trailer plates

11 posts in this topic

why does minnisota give you a sticker for the tongue of your boat and other trailers. This seems to be a problem to law enforcement in other states that do not have this or know about it. I came up here from ark. 10 yrs. ago and when i take my boat out of state i ussually always get pulled over for not haveing a plate on back of the trailer. I'm thinking about registering my boat back to ark. so the states south of mn. will quit stopping me wanting to know where my plate is.

I'd rather buy a lifetime sticker, than plates and tabs every few years. How about you get those other states to get rid of their plates?

Yeah. Maybe we're just a little more progressive.

MN is progressive? LOL!!! Regressive is more like it.

How about not requiring a license for boat trailers like other states? Another novel concept this state cannot grasp....

i am confused, if other states dont require a license, why is the tongue tag an issue?

Besides it is a lot harder to take the decal off of the tongue then it is to take plates off a trailer in a crowed parking lot. shocked

A few years back, before they had the lifetime sticker, I got a ticket at a boat lot for now having a plate on my tailer....I had to go and get a duplicate and present my receipt from the original. The lady at the court house said that they were getting many cases of this happening, and most were due to the plates being stolen, not lost. frown

regressive is more like it. Mn. will probably tell me i can't smoke in my boat next. Anyway,the tags or stickers are really an issue i guess, but yes all staes should be one way or the other, then maybe no confusion.

I think "progressive" is the new name for "liberal" . Minnesota is that.
