Remember to Display Red Decals to Avoid Fines

 

Law enforcement officers will be checking vehicle decals closely next week. Fairfax County residents, including military personnel, are reminded that they must display their red Fairfax County decals for tax year 2005 on all vehicles or risk getting a ticket and a fine.

Police and/or sheriff departments from Alexandria City, Fairfax City, Falls Church City, Manassas City, Arlington County, Fairfax County, Loudoun County, Prince William County, Town of Herndon, and the town of Middleburg participate in a region-wide enforcement effort commencing on Monday, Nov. 22. Decals should be affixed next to the state safety inspection sticker. Decals from prior years should be removed before affixing the current one. Motorcycle decals should be affixed to the bike’s fork next to the state safety inspection sticker.

By law, the deadline for displaying the red 2005 decals was Nov. 15. On or after Nov. 22, law enforcement personnel in participating jurisdictions will issue tickets to drivers of vehicles without decals or with expired decals (e.g. last year’s blue decal).

Decals can be obtained at the Fairfax County Department of Tax Administration, 12000 Government Center Parkway, Suite 223, in Fairfax. Decal fees are $25/car, truck or van; $18/motorcycle; and $23/taxicab. There is no proration for decals. Vehicle decals will be issued at no cost to active duty military personnel who reside in the county due to military orders, and who are the sole owners of vehicles garaged or parked in the county and who maintain their legal residences in a state other than Virginia. Vehicles with out-of-state license plates are required to display a county decal if they are garaged here.

Residents of the towns of Herndon and Vienna must purchase town decals, available from their respective town halls. Residents of the town of Clifton must purchase a town tag from the town clerk.
