These Aren't the Droids You're Looking For

The Oklahoma Tax Commission is spreading bad info on a recent change to vehicle registration.

"... the new law also requires drivers to keep their registration or an official copy of it in their cars"
https://kfor.com/2019/06/21/new-laws-on-car-registration-tags-take-effect-july-1/

...is not what the law actually says.


Try this:

"2018 Oklahoma Statutes Title 47. Motor Vehicles §47-1112.3. Documentation required in possession or in vehicle"

A. Except as otherwise provided in subsection B of this section, at all times while a vehicle is being used or operated on the roads of this state, the operator of the vehicle shall have IN HIS OR HER POSSESSION OR CARRY IN THE VEHICLE and exhibit upon demand to any peace officer of the state or duly authorized employee of the Department of Public Safety, EITHER a:
1. Registration certificate or an official copy thereof...
(CAPS mine)

You should be OK with having your registration in your wallet, which is a better idea than leaving something for identity thieves or the obvious risks of reaching for a glove compartment during a traffic stop.

Tulsa Police Sgt. Stephen Florea, over the Gilcrease Traffic Division, said the law change does not include a penalty, so there would be no citation for drivers who do not keep the registration certificate with the vehicle.

Update (July 3): The Oklahoma Tax Commission is offering free copies of registration certificates via email. Go to okcars.tax.ok.gov. The PDFs provided digitally may be printed and kept with the driver or vehicle.

Many Tulsa World readers commented about visiting tag agencies that were charging as much as $5-$6 more than the listed $1 reprint fee after the news about the law change last week.

I’ve always just assumed the “private” tag agency system in Oklahoma was a product of some long-ago corrupt political bargain.

Long-ago?

There's no time like the present.

Maybe the word you are looking for is "patronage"
