As title says, I returned vehicle plates to the DMV via mail back in January. They mailed me receipt to send to my insurance to be able to remove vehicle from policy. I am now getting parking tickets given in February to my old plates. Anyone has advice? Geico is at a loss of words and my only option for now is just to keep disputing tickets.

Should be said that I have 3 tickets from two different boroughs. Any help is appreciated.

Plead not guilty, attend the hearing and show the judge proof that you turned the plates in prior to when the tickets were written

Happened to me years ago, someone in another borough got tickets on my old plate.

Luckily I was able to find the return receipt from the dmv and had to send it to traffic court in Long Island.

It was resolved.

Wait, are you saying the DMV reissues the same plates to someone else? Or that someone has forged your plates on a car and getting tickets?

I would think in the first situation it would be easy to resolve by showing them the receipt/proof. In the latter situation, that is a crime and if you let the police know I'm sure they'll impound the car if the plate is seen again.

call the police and tell them someone is using the plates that you turned into DMV and your getting tickets

Well I’m not sure how the plates destruction process works but I believe they weren’t actually destroyed but just stolen or given by someone at the place where it’s supposed to be destroyed. I can settle the tickets by constantly going to court/online dispute but I’m concerned about a crime being committed and my name being attached to it.

From my understanding it’s not an issue police can help only DMV.

The moment you turn over your vehicle it is of utmost
important to take your plates off and immediately turn
them into the DMV.

30 years ago proof for turning in plates
was called an F7 receipt.

If for some strange reason your vehicle makes it out of the
pound and junked onto the side of the road ( as what exactly
happened to my vehicle ) a traffic cop will issue tickets based
on any registration found regardless whether or not plates are
on vehicle.

If it was not for my F7 proof of turning in plates I would have
had to pay a fine of over $700 dollars and that was a lot of money
back then.


Always have proof ......................Lesson well learned.

They can run the VIN to determine the latest registration, even if not currently valid.
