    this is truly great news for every one who owns a van or pick up truck and has been forced to obtain and pay for those plates for simply having owned a van or pick up truck, imagaine the tens of millions of dollars the state will now refund every one, thx to the DMV, though I am not so sure that the governors bullet train budget will appreciate this magnaminous decision?
