I've always been a little loose about the registration, licensing and inspection of my cars. I've also been scrupulous about the maintenance.
Until a little while ago I let my registration and inspections lapse on all three of my cars. I hadn't had a valid break tag in more than three years and my licenses plates had, I thought, expired since the flood.
About two weeks later we returned to the same place to renew our drivers licenses. both were due to expire before the end of the year. I wasn't really concerned about getting a ticket so much as being denied boarding an airplane. I was so worried about that I actually tested boarding with an expired passport. They let me on.
