HARRISBURG – Rep. Andrew Kuzma (R-Allegheny/Washington) today reminded vehicle owners that if their license plates are difficult to read, replacement plates are available for free. To help facilitate the process to turn in the illegible plate for a new one, Kuzma is teaming up with the City of Monongahela Police Department for an event on Saturday, March 18,

The event will be held at the Monongahela Aquatorium, 200 Railroad St., from 1-3 p.m.

“Weather and age can damage license plates and result in the letters and numbers becoming difficult to read,” Kuzma said. “Many people do not realize they can receive a replacement from PennDOT free of charge. This event will help simplify the process.”

If the plate is determined to be illegible, paperwork will be completed for no fee. A new replacement plate should arrive in a few weeks to the vehicle owner’s home address.

According to PennDOT, a registration plate is deemed illegible when one or more numbers or letters cannot be recognized from 50 feet or if the registration plate shows any blistering, peeling, discoloration or loss of reflectivity.

Anyone with further questions can contact Kuzma’s Pleasant Hills district office at 412-382-2009.

The 39th Legislative District includes Elizabeth, Forward and South Park townships and Elizabeth, Jefferson Hills, Pleasant Hills and West Elizabeth boroughs in Allegheny County; and Union and part of Carroll townships, Finleyville and New Eagle boroughs, and the city of Monongahela in Washington County.
