Today, coming home from a trip in the mountains, I got a cracked radiator and my car overheated. My dad came to get me, he drove my car and I followed in his. I got pulled over and ticketed for his expired registration. FML

While it did suck for OP to be the one who got pulled over, it is not a moving violation (doesn't go to insurance). His dad simply just has to renew it, and there should be a fairly cheap dismissal fee that, yes, his father should have to pay.

The registration stickers on the license plate are color-coded for the year, so it's fairly simple to look at the sticker color to determine if the registration is out of date.

Edit: dammit, sorry that was meant as a reply to #7.

I got a ticket for an expired registration in high school. It was "my" car but it was registered to my dad. Not only did I have to pay for the ticket, but I got a big stupid lecture about not making sure the car registration was renewed on time, even though HE was the one who received the notice in the mail. Then I was made to go to the DMV to renew the registration. I waited for over an hour, only to find out that my dad was the only one who could renew the registration. You'd think my dad, a man who was over 50 years old at the time, would know better. Yeah, I'm still a little bitter about it.

As far as I know, when an officer runs your tag number on his computer he is able to see when it was last registered, along with other details about your vehicle.

Damn, talk about bad luck. Ask your dad, maybe he will pay you back for the ticket, or split it with you. And on the bright side at least you weren't stranded out there and he came and got you. I'd rather the ticket than being stuck up in the mountains.
