Score Your Car Tags To Avoid Theft

To keep your car tag registration sticker from being stolen. Clean the area where it goes well. Window cleaner works best because of the alcohol. After adhering the new one well, score (cut) it several times with a razor blade. Someone trying to steal it only gets bits and pieces instead of it coming off in one piece.

Yes, I used to live in Chicago and in St. Louis for awhile, I thought everyone already knew this trick. Thank you for raising awareness. It definitely deters the sticker thieves.
