Posted on January 25, 2016 | in Uncategorized | by
The line for automobile stickers stretched out the second-floor door of the Fayette County clerk's office and spilled into the first-floor lobby of the Fayette County courthouse Feb. 29, 1952. The following day, March 1, was the first day drivers had to have a 1952 license sticker in their windshield signifying their 1951 plate was good in 1952. Kentucky was one of 21 states that used the stickers rather than make new plates to conserve metal. If you were found after March 1 driving without the sticker, the fine ranged from $10-100.
