    Will, there be precautions taken to prevent fraudulent permits for the coming year? The ease to counterfeit the permits that were issued last year makes me reluctant to renew this year.

    John asked 2 months ago

    All permits are associated with registered license plates and if a permit is counterfeit or duplicated, a $150 fine will be issued and the permit revoked. 2021 permits will be distinguishable from last year's permits
