Cuomo administration softens mandatory plan for new license plates

September 17, 2019 04:45 PM

The controversial plan to force drivers to replace older license plates in New York will be changed.

The original plan called for all drivers with decade-old plates to pay $25 for new ones, and $20 to keep the same plate number, even if they were in good condition.

The Cuomo administration on Tuesday said it was committed to working with the legislature to create a plan that ensures plates are readable by law enforcement and cashless tolling systems.

It also wants to create a process where plates older than 10 years are inspected and if still readable can be kept.
