License Tags Stolen? Possible New Law Could Help


Jefferson City, MO – Missouri lawmakers sent the governor legislation on Thrusday that would let people replace as many as four stolen license plate tags a year for free.

Right now, drivers can only get two free tags a year.

The legislation, if signed into law, would also ban police from writing tickets to tag-less drivers - but only if the driver says the tags were stolen and a computer check finds the plates up to date.

The bill's sponsor, Senator Maida Coleman (D-St. Louis), says her tags have been stolen twice.
