The guy is not a member of Shock Trauma Team.

Seems to be able to park in Fire Lanes at Baltimore Marine Center without a ticket.
Since 1999

Sounds like a personal issue. Either alert the authorities or put on you man pants and have a conversation with the alledged offender. Why come on here and post that crud?

I didn't know Shock Trauma personnel could get special plates. My cousin's wife didn't either...and she's a member of the team.

What are the other "Magic" license plates? Inquiring minds want to know.

I'm not sure who qualifies for the plate:

They would appear to be private organization plates. You can form a group and set your own membership standards and get special organizational plates-- like Ravens tags available now, which just about anybody can get. FOP, ceratin school alumni orgs, etc.

So you can get raven or fop plate without ANY affiliation with ravens or fop?
Gosh that seems so stupid to me. Will the state of MD do anything for a few extra dollars? I'm assuming the plates cost a little more.

no you can't, you must be affiliated with the organization to get the paperwork to get the organizational tags

That's not right. That reminds me of how those without handicap plates or hangers park in the spots not meant for them. The same with those who use their handicap relative's plates or hangers to get a closer parking space.

Each organization sets the requirements for receiving that organization's personalized tags.

Vanity plates are $25 per year.

I was referring to the organizational plates. Its $15 w/o logo or $25 with a logo on the plate.

Interesting, I thought MD stopped issuing them after that dust-up over the 'Sons of the Confederacy' tags with the stars and bars on them.

In any event, I don't think Parking Enforcement gives deference to any organizational tags, except perhaps FOP's may catch a break, but even then its doubtful, especially if a citizen complaint is made. If one sees such a tag in violation and it bothers them enough, they should call it in.

Looks like the Sons of Confederate Veterans plate is still available.

Also a motorcycle tag

1) How is this even relevant to the local news?
2) I guess you're like the trolls on Craigslist, all tough on the internet, too afraid to ever confront someone in person.
3) How do you know they're not a member of STC team?
4) Did you know that anybody w/ a connection to MD EMS, and staff at UMMS can get those plates?

I love to watch Fox News because conservatives are much more interesting to watch. They make good TV. Just look at this clip.
