How do you properly get rid of them? Throwing them in the trash scares me since anyone can pick them up and use them.

You can just cut them up before you throw them away. Tin snips or even an old garden tool. If you don't have a tin snips just fold it in half a few times and it will snap. I show off my freakish strength by ripping them in half.

Personally I shoot lots of holes in them and then hang them in my garage. I have a good 40 or so between all of my old cars, trucks, and motorcycles.

This is one area where I am glad the state of Ohio turns a blind eye. Other states like Virginia and I think New York require you to return the plates to state, along with a pile of paperwork. It's a real pain in the arse. Personally, I like my garage full of plates.

You hang them on your garage wall. It's the law.

Do NOT leave the OLD ones in the car.

I had a year where I moved to three states and I would toss the old plates into my trunk.

I crossed the border into Canada and the border patrol people detained me for 15 minutes wondering why I had so many license plates. I told them the story and tossed the plates and they let me go.

It is funny you say that. I have recently let my beard grow out and I have been exclusively riding 2-wheeled transportation lately. If you see a guy in a grey helmet and an all black CBR rolling through P. Ridge down Montgomery Road 2-6 times a day that is me. Since graduation I have stopped wearing a shirt and tie to work and I have been wearing jeans and boots instead. I guess my ex was the only thing keeping me from going feral.
