Guam - So what happens when you drive with expired tags? You get a ticket, right? So what happens if Government of Guam vehicles have expired tags?  Earlier this week we brought you the story about how several buses transporting children to and from school haven't received their official safety inspection, but yet they've been cleared by the Department of Public Works management to hit the road. 

DPW Director Andy Leon Guerrero defended the buses were still safe because their safety inspector gave them the all-clear. KUAM News has obtained a memo signed Monday by then-Acting Director Jess Garcia authorizing all school bus drivers to drive school buses with expired registrations until the end of the month.

If they're cited for the expired tags, he says to let him know as soon as possible.
