    While funny, and mostly true, a lot of that is controlling the scene. For a parkade you've got a narrow gate or entrance to control the angle of cars entering, short camera distances, and as best as you can, an idea viewing angle setup. The mobile cars have 700 cameras strapped to them so theres always some angle they can process as they roll by at a slow speed.

    But driving around now, theres certain vehicles you see where the plates so muddy, or covered in snow its almost impossible to read. Throw in dust or dawns really flat light and night time, and its quite a bit harder to read plates all the time.

    The new reflective plates also fuck you on photo radar. Expect more tickets now. Seen a pic on FB of the difference and it was night and day from old to new.

    I'll miss all the people who couldn't figure the stickers out. Best I ever saw was one in each corner and one above and below the dash
    Basically the registry should watch you put the sticker on and if you do it incorrectly, your licence gets revoked for a year.

    Have never seen a good driver with the incorrectly placed sticker.

    I never put them in the right spot out of spite. The registration sticker was out dated in the 80's when dispatch was running plate numbers on their computers and could instantly tell if the plate had an expired registration, hence my post a few pages back. The cops don't give a shit about the stickers.

    So, in my act of rebellion, i just find a spot of clear white space, and BAM! that's where my sticker goes. Actually kinda sad I won't be able to do that anymore...

    I'll try and find it. New plate you could clearly read the plate from the flash, old plate, was dark and hardly readable. Real reason to get rid of stickers. More revenue from photo radar.

    Aren't plates / registration a provincial authority and the photo radar a municipality? Hence why Deadmonton and Calgary have them but nothing outside the City limits? So the money saved wouldn't do it for me. Plus, with what the UCP did with the bills last week for Municipal politics, I don't assume that they are giving the Cities a way to collect more.

    I suspect it is an 'easy win' for the red-tape reduction department. Come election, look we removed 125 stupid / silly red tape things like we promised!
    Cos...

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.

    Default License Plate Stickers....can I remove all of them now?

    Hi all,

    Since license plate stickers are no longer required in Alberta....can I remove the old ones for a cleaner look? I have a custom plate and would be nice to clean it up. I presume it's okay...but haven't seen anyone ask this question.

    I did. Good luck not scuffing it up trying to get them off. I just did the same for my Vanity Plate.

    Just renewed my plates and asked them this exact question - yes, you can remove all of the stickers if you want.

    I got the second plate sitting in the basement brand new with no stickers on it ever, might just swap that in instead

    Heat gun and plastic trim tool, came off very easy, and not scratched.

    Only thing that sucks about motorcycle custom plates, it says YEAR and MONTH on the sticker locations, painted onto the plate. Oh well.
