SUGARLOAF – In an effort to make it easier for vehicle owners to replace damaged or illegible license plates, Rep. Mike Cabell (R-Luzerne) is joining with Sen. Lynda Culver (R-27) in co-hosting a free event on Thursday, April 4, in partnership with the Salem Township Police Department. The replacement event will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Salem Township Municipal Building, 38 Bomboy Lane.

“We are happy to provide this free service to simplify the process of obtaining a new license plate from PennDOT,” said Cabell. “Thanks to the Salem Township Police for helping us out.”

Vehicle owners interested in taking part in the event are required to register by calling Cabell’s district office in Sugarloaf Township at 570-359-2138 or Culver’s Luzerne County office at 570-387-4267.

According to PennDOT, a plate is deemed illegible when one or more numbers or letters cannot be recognized from 50 feet or if the plate shows any blistering, peeling, discoloration or loss of reflectivity. If the plate is determined to be illegible by a police officer, paperwork will be completed for no fee. A new replacement plate should arrive in a few weeks to the vehicle owner’s home address.
