only thing is theres 2 parts to the sticker, theres the one on the plate, and the another sticker on your green ontario registration card. Thats where the matching is done. I dont think anything is looked up, the stickers are just a cash grab from mto.robz wrote:but even if they stole the plates for the sticker itself, wouldn't a cop be able to look up the theif plates and see that they are not renewed, or does that type of info not pull up on there computers,...? otherwise - yeah, I would guess they will be committing a crime, or joy-riding on the 407,...
An officer can check the validity of the stickers by tail gateing you and checking the date of expiry versus todays date. When he pulls you over he takes your registration, unfolds it and checks the number.
Also the sticker's expirty date is always the birth month of the registered owner. This also means the stickers must be renewed the First day of the birth persons month, not the date
so thats another ditterent of sticker theft
