The 'statement, contradicts recent reporto that the double penalty would not be charged until after February 3. "No Excuses" The law requires the penalty must on at the end of this month re- flR of the excuse the motorist may have for hin failure to seek new plates, Registrar Bevans declared. "We recognize that even this small fee Is a serious drain on the resources of* many of our people and we are go- inff to be lenient wherever it IB pos- wtble," he pointed out. "However, the law (fives us no choice In the matter of fees and we must enforce it." The penalty Is equal to the amount of the fee. For the owner of an ordinary passenger car this means he will have to pay JG instead of $3 for his plates. It will mean a great deal more to the owner of a commercial vehicle, as these fees Are much higher. New plates may be secured at all branches of' the department and at branches or the authorized auto clubs. Can Mail Fee However. If the motorist does not have the time to make such a trip, u simpler method ia for him to mall hin fee and white slip to the department's main office in Sacramento. His plates will be sent to him nt the address given on his certificate of registration. If the applicant has moved sinco last registering, he should write his new address in legible letters on tht* certificate itnd he should indicate the county of his legal residence. .Those who have assumed the legal ownership of their vehicles during- the year are required to send an extra $1 for a transfer fee.
