Those renewing their vehicle licence this month will receive the last batch of stickers for their plates.

From Nov. 1, the government is getting rid of them. SGI Minister Donna Harpauer says the stickers have become redundant.

"Law enforcement no longer relies on the stickers to validate vehicle registration, they can verify registration electronically now", she said in a telephone interview Tuesday.

The move saves about $100,000 every year.

That money will go toward the automated licence plate recognition software used by law enforcement in patrol cars.
