Staggered registration in Indiana (current system)

Beginning in 2008, Indiana modified, for the fourth time, its staggered registration system. When I lived in Indiana, as a kid, my family's plates expired on April 30 each year. In 1986, however, we were moved to the end of July. Now, my brothers and my parents all have until August 21 to get them renewed.

Here's how it shakes out now:
