Post Illinois Plates and Drivers licenses 
I have been seeing quite a few Illinois plates in the city and understand illegals use a family members or friends address in Illinois to get plates and their drivers licenses, now that it is difficult in Indiana without a social security number.

Many of these people have worked months at jobs with those plates.

What is the law covering the amount of time as a resident that you have to purchase Indiana tags?

Seems a shame our roads are not getting the tax money from these people that are driving on our roads with Illinois tags. Let alone wondering if they even carry insurance.
