The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

We push, but we don't budget

In an effort to save a few bucks, the Oklahoma Tax Commission announced that they would no longer send renewal notices for vehicle license plates (or, as state parlance calls them, "tags").

Today the Commission backpedaled, saying that they weren't saving any real money by not sending the notices. State law provides for a thirty-day grace period after the expiration of the current tag; the Commission had hoped that people, knowing they would get no reminder in the mail, might actually renew on time or even early. It didn't happen.

(I myself used to procrastinate, though I never seem to find the time anymore.)

You know, whatever happened to looking at the back of your car to see when your tag expires?

If you can't even think to do that (and I'm not talking procrastination... I'm guilty of that as well), then you probably don't need to be driving in the first place. You might forget where the brake pedal is or something similarly stupid.

(Just in case anyone asks.)

Too many other things on my mind. It just doesn't occur to me to look.
