Stolen License Plates

  • A neighbor at Noe&14th Streets reports that her car license plates were stolen twice in the last 6 months and that it resulted in a big hassle as it affects Fastrak, DMV Car Registration and Residential Parking Permits.
  • And you have to pay a fee when you transfer license plates for your Residential Parking Permit. She has asked Supervisor Mandelman if 311 and the City could drop that fee if they had a category regarding stolen license plates.
  • If you have experienced this problem, let DTNA know.

Slow Triangle
