Reason number 5,233,347 why I love Oakland:

This car has had a handwritten license plate for as long as it's been parked on my street -- maybe 2 years? I had to chuckle today because I noticed the handwritten expiration has finally been replaced with one that is in 2009.

Why stop at April 2009 though? Even if the car is registered for April, you're supposed to get pulled over -- or your unoccupied car is supposed to be ticketed -- for not having real plates anyway, so why not go all the way and sharpie in a 2015 date for cheekiness' sake?
