You can't get there from here.

Talked to the Ohio DMV this morning.  My kids can't register the cars in Ohio themselves, because my name is on the title.  I either have to change the name on the title to their names, thereby allowing USAA to raise the insurance rates astronomically, or I have to drive up to Ohio and stay there while the Ohio DMV goes through it's little drill.  The cars will have to be inspected by Ohio to insure they are "safe" and "compliant", for which you get a little sticker which you must renew periodically and pay a fee for. It's all about taxing people, nothing more.

  1. Those who pay have to pay even more.

    Those who don't pay get Obama phones.

    1. I got it fixed. I called the Department of Revenue Commissioners office at the Capitol. I didn't get to talk to the Grand PooBah himself, but one of his staff knew what was going on and got it squared away. Out of the 10 or so public servants I worked with, she was the only one who had a clue.

  2. Can't they use your address or an address in your state and keep your states tag?? Get a box at a UPS store or a place like the UPS store. Which would be cheaper, Ohio or your state??

    1. Rob, I got it worked out so I could keep my state tags and not have to go through Ohio. It didn't make any sense that my state would want to run off tax money, I just had to find someone in Government who knew something about their job and that's why it took so long. I will say something here that might get me in trouble, but most of the people in state government here are minorities. There are some who know their jobs, but most of the ones I've dealt with over the years have been worse than useless and I ran into some of that on this problem.

    1. I feel more like Michael Douglas in "Falling Down."

      Can I say that on line? Is that a terroristic threat?

  4. Tarnation - the aggravation from our Public Servants just continues to build. Not sure if its just laziness on their part or they just enjoy pushing our buttons. Probably a combination of both.

    My condolences.

    1. Until I finally found one that would help me, most of them were just interested in getting me off the phone so they could go back to surfing the net as far as I can tell.

      It makes you feel sorry for the people who work for the government and do a good job. They get tarred with the same brush as the worthless majority.

  5. Rates are going up here, $180 for our 2003 pickup truck, and of course it's due.
    State inspections are a joke, we had them in NH growing up and all it did was make money for a shop. No one cared if you drove a pile of crap for 11 months out of the year, only on inspection did anyone seem to 'care about the safety of you and the planet'.

    1. Let's see. I pay $120 a month for the truck, the Cherokee and the Dodge my wife drives. I pay $66.00 a month for my sons insurance, and $87.00 a month for my daughter. That comes up to $273.00 a month, or $3,276.00 a year. I carry the best terms I can get on the kids cars, my wifes car. Just what the law requires on my old truck and Jeep.

      Safety inspections are a tax farming device. That's it.
