Messed-up license plate could cost you

Q. I saw in your column recently that people can get cited for scratching up their license plates. It wouldn’t be a good idea to assume that a license plate with peeling paint was deliberately damaged. One of my vehicles has a license plate issued in 2005 with bubbling and peeling paint. I certainly took no action to make it peel. I’ve seen a lot of other plates of similar vintage that also have peeling paint. Perhaps California was using defective paint then. Curiously, my front plate is fine, ...
