From LCT: The bill also would repeal the requirement for chauffeured transportation operators to place "livery plates" on fleet vehicles, thereby saving costs and time. Each operator who purchases a new fleet vehicle must pay $40 for the plate. Delivery of livery plates often takes several weeks, which means new vehicles are legally inoperable for that time.

    In place of the livery plate, the PUC is going to issue those ugly blue stickers. Why do we need a sticker when we already have our TCP number on the front and rear of the vehicles?
