Earlier this year I wrote about some roadside signs that were popping up near the Delaware border, lambasting Pennsylvania drivers for licensing their cars in Delaware. I never heard anything more about who posted the accusatory signs or why.
Richard Corkran, who lives in West Marlborough, came up to me after a meeting the other night and suggested that nostalgia might be a key reason why Pennsylvania residents use Delaware tags. He said although he lives in Pennsylvania, he still has the same Delaware tags that have been in his family for many years; he said they evoke happy memories. He said he has found that cost is pretty much "a wash" in terms of inspections, insurance and sales tax between the two states.
