How Jobs Cruised Around Cupertino Without Plates

Steve Jobs managed to drive around California without a license plate for four years, and until now, it remained a mystery how he was able to get away with it. Ponying up the cash for the occasional ticket wouldn’t be an issue for the billionaire, but a former senior security officer at Apple has revealed Mr. Jobs’ clever legal loophole. In Cali, state law requires that drivers affix license plates to new vehicles within six months of the date of purchase, so naturally, Steve would get a brand new $120,000 Mercedes-Benz SL 55 AMG twice a year. To soften the sting of jealousy, know that he just exchanged the car with the Mercedes leasing company and did not actually buy each one outright.
