    Front plate law here in NH is FTL! I had to buy a plate bracket and install it on the Z.

    Here in Nebraska, the state is required to redesign the plates every three years.

    I guess the reason is back in the 70s/80s Nebraska used the same design for 10 years or more, and people just got sick of it.

    BTW, I'm originally from Kansas, and front plates aren't required there, unless you have personalized plates. No clue what the logic is behind that.

    Not sure whether they're required here in Ontario but I imagine they are, They just kill the look of our older cars and the cars with an aggressive front end. Since my car's not on the road I took the front plate off (which was from the early 80s anyway) to get some pictures and all the paint's chipped off from it and looks like crap.

    I don't know any of the laws up here about plates, but I know they don't redesign ours lol man our plates up here have looked the same since I was around to see them... I slapped some plates from 83 on my car and drove it home and they look no different then the one on my dad's car he bought this summer...

    Front plates are required here in Illinois, but laws, rules, and regulations are made to be broken. I kicked my front plate to the curb when I got the billet grill.

    Yea I am in Illinois as well. The law does suck especially when either state on each side(indiana and missouri) are smart enough to not require them. I have actually gotten a warning twice so they do enforce it as well. It's just one of those usless bogus laws they overlook year after year.

    We used to have a two plate law here in Michigan about 20 years ago?
    Back around 1980,I was entering a freeway with my '76 Mustang Cobra. I had duals dumping under the the rear axle. So I'm winding thru the gears on the on ramp and merge in front of a state cop. He lights me up and I pull over. He says I need pipes exiting at the bumper. He then proceeds to check my lights,tires,etc. While he standing facing the front of my car,he asks/tells me to turn on my headlights,brights,turn,flashers. I then remember I have no front plate,because the bracket is missing. After he checks everything he lets me go with a warning about my pipes. He never noticed the front plate was missing.
