Is your license plate peeling? If so you are being asked to replace it or face a possible fine.

It's all part of a new initiative by the Erie County Auto Bureau and the Erie County Sheriff's Office are encouraging motorists to turn in defective license plates to avoid any unnecessary traffic stops by law enforcement.

"Look at your license plate if it's peeling take advantage of this." said Erie County Sheriff Tim Howard. "Eventually people will start being ticketed for it. Again, they could be ticketed for it now."

Getting your plates replaced is fairly easy and free of charge. All you have to do is bring your plates with your registration to any DMV.
