AGENCY AND/OR THE OWNER'S AUTOMOBILE INSURANCE COMPANY, AND UPON PAYMENT
OF A TRANSFER FEE OF SEVEN DOLLARS AND SEVENTY-FIVE  CENTS,  CREDIT  THE
UNUSED PORTION OF THE REGISTRATION FEE PAID FOR SUCH VEHICLE AGAINST ANY
SUBSEQUENT REGISTRATION FEE WHICH BECOMES DUE FOR ANOTHER MOTOR VEHICLE,

SHALL  BE  COMPUTED BY APPORTIONING THE REGISTRATION FEE FOR REGISTERING
THE STOLEN VEHICLE BETWEEN THE NUMBER OF MONTHS FOR WHICH THE  REGISTRA-
TION  FEE  WAS PAID WITH THE NUMBER OF MONTHS REMAINING AT THE TIME SUCH
VEHICLE WAS STOLEN. WHENEVER THE AMOUNT OF THE CREDIT  AS  PROVIDED  FOR
HEREIN  SHALL  AMOUNT  TO  OTHER  THAN A WHOLE DOLLAR AMOUNT, THE CREDIT
SHALL BE ROUNDED TO THE NEAREST TWENTY-FIVE CENTS.
