Now really... It's not dangerous at all to you for others to drive with expired tags. Learn not to sweat the small things. You know, "don't worry, be happy."

As others have posted, you never know the situation of the driver in that expired-tag vehicle. Some may have huge medical bills, be laid off work, struggling from pay check to pay check, trying to feed their kids. If none of those are you, count your blessings.

Breaking the law is acceptable now?
No, it isn't.

How do you feel about those out there driving without insurance?
What about those driving without a license?
That ok also?

My god, are you ex military or a ex cop. You're right on top of your "law's" , aren't you? You know, sometimes things just can't be helped no matter what the law is.

I'm much more concerned with people who are driving out there with no insurance.
That one costs EVERYONE in the form of increased insurance costs, not to mention what happens when/if you get in an accident with an uninsured driver.

We live in an area with no vehicle emissions testing, no personal property taxes on vehicles and no safety inspections on them.
I reckon I can fess up a measly $50 or whatever for tag renewal every year to stay legal.

Some insurance companies will refuse to pay if their client has an accident, is at fault, and does not have a valid registration. If your tags are expired, then the car is not legally registered. So expired tags are very similar to those driving without insurance. I for one would be very ticked if I was hit and their insurance would not pay to repair my vehicle. Of course you could sue the individual, but the insurance company is not required to pay if the owner/insured is violating laws (driving while intoxicated, suspended license, etc.)

I have never heard such riduculous comments. It's like this: If you have expired tags, your car should be taken away or impounded. Come to California where you can apparently get away with having expired tags for over 6 months with no problems and can drive your car all around without getting a ticket! I guess I'm just one of those nosy fed-up neighbors that watches lazy ass people get away with murder. Yes, I have been unemployed myself and have a heart, but after reading some of these comments, give me a break!

That's why we have to carry "uninsured motorist" insurance, so your own insurance company will pay your losses - even though you aren't even at fault. Not fair, is it.

Most of this post is off subject. The whole purpose of a freaking tag is to keep our cars "some what" air friendly. When I fail emissions becouse my car is old and, of course, I am poor, I HAVE to get repairs done, which may cost a couple to a couple thousand dollars to repair and then pay an extra $20 for another freaking emessions test, so you can pass and then more money ($85) for the freaking tag sticker. For the so called do gooders here, you may know the law, but you do not know the difference between right and wrong, or common sence for that matter. Its just another hustle sceme from our state gov'ts. If only I could walk to work... By the way I'm from Georgia.

This is BAD ADVISE because it only works until a law enforcement officer gets close behind you. I have seen this sign tried and I wonder if it's the same person.
Any farm truck, construction truck crane, mobile well drilling machine, motorcycle and etc requires a tag in Tennessee if it is driven on a public road. A farm tractor, farm combine, rubber tired construction backhoe, rubber tired construction loader and bicycle cannot be tagged, doesn't require a tag and can be legally on a Tennessee public road (without a sign). However, if you get caught driving an ATV (four wheeler) on a Tennessee public road, you may get an ticket for an unauthorized vehicle.
I noticed a different looking Tennessee tag on an older car at a Rogersville food store parking lot occupied by an elderly couple. After a second glance, it was not even the current tag and after the third look, the expiration date was ten years ago. LOL.

Some of you all are very lucky.
A farmer friend of mine in Greene County was caught on a public road crossing from one of his fields to another of his fields with an ATV (4 wheeler) and paid a fine for unauthorized vehicle.
An officer getting coffee noticed an acquaintance of mine expired tag at a fast food restaurant and then waited down the street for them to pull out and stopped her. She said she failed to get the state renewal notice and forgot it was due. During past years, I have known of several people who had a current state tag but got caught by county officers for not having the county wheel tax sticker. Over the past years, I even know of different people who moved from other states with current out-of-state tags to be stopped because they had been here for a few months without getting a Tennessee tag.(How would law enforcement know)?
