A local MPP has launched a pair of petitions he says are aimed at responding to “growing concerns from Ontario motorists.”

Kitchener-Conestoga MPP and PC Transportation Critic Michael Harris says they deal with peeling licence plates and the potential for a municipal vehicle registration tax.

On the issue of plates, he says the Ontario government has been aware of the problem for close to four years.

If you have one of those defective, bubbling plates and are pulled over, you could be fined $110.

To replace the plate, vehicle owners have to fork over $29.

As for a vehicle registration tax, Harris says the Ministry of Municipal Affairs is considering allowing municipalities the authority to implement such a levy.

Based on a previous attempt to bring in such a tax by the City of Toronto, that could amount to a cost of about $60 a vehicle.

The petitions are posted on Harris’ website:
