I took this picture in Boise.  Somebody doesn't want their car messed with.  Yes, they scratched off any California colors/info...

Why not go down to the DMV and get your shit registered in Idaho?
Link Posted: 8/16/2017 10:41:18 AM EST
I am surprised they have not been stopped yet, I have been stopped a couple of times over the years because they could not read my plate and they plate was just worn, that one has been defaced on purpose!

This I don't get.  Granted they will still drive like they are from California, but no one will know when they are parked.

Was it a Prius by any chance?  Nobody messed with my Silverado while it had CA tags on it.  And yes, it's about 30% the cost to register up here.

It was not a Prius, but some other Toyota sedan.

i wonder if they drive it back to california every year to smog it?
Link Posted: 8/24/2017 10:37:03 PM EST
The only thing I can think of is that they moved here and were in the process of getting ID plates, but didn't want to risk pissing anyone off.

so do boiseians really hate out of staters that much?

FWIW California had an issue with their plates, they claim there isn't a problem but for a while whatever hippie organic vegan paint they used on the plates was garbage, that picture is what happens to those plates over time.

In pure California fashion it's against the law to have a plate with peeling paint, the government says the plates are fine and you have to pay 20.00 for a replacement, if you don't it's a $1000.00 fine for driving a vehicle with a plate without paint. You can't make this stuff up people.

Here's an article on it

That depends.  If I see a truck with big tires and gun stickers that happens to be from California, that's good to go.  But if you're in a Prius with a Hillary sticker, GTFO.

Basically, a good chunk of Boise residents these days are from California and we ended up hating the place so bad we actually bothered with relocating.  When we see that shit follow us up here, well, speaking for myself...it makes my blood boil over.

Now there's apparently a different strain of this virus called the Seattleite that originated from California.

You forgot the viral strain (stain) from the West called Portland, where many of them originated from California as well. They infected Portland so badly with their strain of liberalism that now many of them are moving from Portland to the treasure valley because Portland has become more of a cesspool than what they thought it was going to be.

Who am I? I'm Tim from Southern California. Moving to the Treasure Valley this December. Yes, another California person bringing the family to Idaho. But wait,,,,I'm not a native. I'm actually a native of Montana and call Kansas my real home as that's where I lived when I graduated from high school and struck out on my own. I'm bringing the hidden SoCal brand of ultra conservatism with me....so fear not. Have to move out of California in December as many weapons I own will become illegal for me to possess here upon my retirement.

I have been very amused at my times in the Treasure Valley with my California plates. Idahoans go out of their way to be rude and I had one dude pull up next to me and scream at me to "Go back to California!" It was comedy! I loved every minute of it!

I've been stalking you guys on this forum for over a year and finally got around to registering. I'm sure I'll be joining in on most of the conversations on here soon.

That's odd.  I never had any trouble.  Of course, if you were driving like you're from SoCal, that could have easily done it.
Link Posted: 8/30/2017 11:20:37 AM EST
Nope, not at all. I actually enjoy driving the speed limit while I'm in ID. However; after spending several weeks in the Treasure Valley for the past three summers....I noticed that many Idahoans are beginning to drive like Californians. Especially up and down Eagle Road. I get it, Eagle Road is the busiest street in state of Idaho, but I saw Idahoans actually honking a bit at each other on it this summer. Even Californians (at least in SoCal) don't usually honk at each other.

I think the only time I was honked at was when I visited my family here before the final move was completed. I wad driving a rental car with California plates, on Eagle Rd and I had the audacity to slow down to let someone merge in front of me. The person I let in waved thank you, the person behind me honked and screamed at me.

I moved here during the month the Colorado registration expired on my 2 year old Silverado. Cost to register it in CO (AKA California East)? $680. Cost to register in ID for 2 years, including title fee and 2 year parks pass? $154.

I couldn't write the check to the clerk's office fast enough.
