City addresses license plate victims' sticker shock
The City of Milwaukee will give a break to vehicle owners who have had their registration stickers ripped off -- sort of. For the past two years parking checkers issued $50 tickets to unregistered vehicles and those without stickers no matter the circumstance. The city can also tow those vehicles. In an effort to be less punitive the city now issues tickets for failing to display registration, which run $17 instead of $50.
