there's not really any need for the validation sticker at all.
How many prov's still use stickers? I haven't seen that in ages.
Also, how many prov's still require 2 plates? Another thing I haven seen in decades.
Lots of jurisdictions have two plates. That's much better as far as I'm concerned. If cops are looking for a car (stolen, stuff like that) and driving in the opposite direction they can see it right away. Stickers are indeed a pain (I hate trying to put it on right), but as somebody else pointed out it's a quick way to see expired plates.
Lots of things your seemingly haven't seen. Get out more, maybe.
