New Car, New State License Plate and New Fee

Nine years with the same license plate means next year I’ll either get the state’s new design or choose a specialty plate. The new bridge was one of the design choices in last month’s statewide contest and was not chosen; then again, some people would have preferred this:

Still shiny with no peeling paint, my plates were transferred to the 2017 certified preowned car I bought last week. There has never been a time when the Thruway Authority hasn’t changed me, even when my E-ZPass® tag wasn’t mounted on the car’s windshield.

Because I was on a “car diet” for the past few weeks I didn’t drive further than the next dealership to check preowned cars. Running against time as my Honda’s engine was fading, I kept the daily mileage to a limit and drove about five or six models, some a few times, to be sure I liked or disliked them.

I enjoyed a comfortable and safe ride with the 1998 Honda Civic LX sedan for 21 years and 162,000 miles. Now to break in the new car with a road trip!

I’d like to know what you think.
