Rigby to Host License Plate Replacement Event

HARRISBURG – State Rep. Jim Rigby (R-Johnstown) is teaming with members of local law enforcement to help constituents replace license plates that have become difficult to read.

“A registration plate is deemed illegible when one or more numbers or letters cannot be recognized from 50 feet or if the registration plate shows any blistering, peeling, discoloration or loss of reflectivity,” said Rigby. “It’s an honor that the Richland Township Police Department is willing to partner with us to provide this valuable public safety-related service to area residents.”

The license plate replacement event will be held Wednesday, Sept. 7, from 4-6 p.m. at the Richland Township Fire Department, 1321 Scalp Ave., Johnstown. There is no need to register in advance for anyone planning to attend; however, driver’s license and registration must be provided by plate holders.

“Copies of form MV-44 will be available for plate holders to fill out, and members of my staff will handle getting them to PennDOT for submission,” Rigby added. “It will be a quick turnaround for anyone operating a vehicle with an illegible license plate and dealing directly with local law enforcement allows us to avoid the usual plate replacement fee.”
