    I'm with everyone there. The only thing that I can think scratchchin image that a front plate is good for are the few lazy cops, so that they don't have to walk to the back of your car when they are giving out parking tickets. lmao image

    ashamed image Just a joke. sorry image

    No offense intended. I have friends that are cops.

    I believe the fine State of Maine has a front plate law, HOWEVER we have three vehicles that sport "vanity plates" not issued by said state. We have had only one incidence and that was with the Monte - I think he wanted an upclose and personal look see. He reminded us that we needed to display our "other plate" somewhere on the front of the vehicle. This was after I got out of the car in the pouring rain to look for my purse which was in the trunk. We also popped the hood so he could see that we were legal (no he didn't ask, we offered and I held the towels) We chuckled all the way home. OH, why I remember the detail so - it was my 50th birthday! hyper image

    Why don`t they just let us put the darn thing up behind the rear view mirror where all can see it and it takes up no extra space.I`m sure some great thinking person could come up with a bracket. scratchchin image

    Ok, my turn to step in. I've been pulled over twice near G.I. here in Nebraska for a tinted licence plate cover. Both times were by State Troopers coming at me. I was told "no covers (even clear) can be used because they obscure the tag". I got a fix it ticket both times. Any law enforcement officer can sign-off on the ticket. I took each of these tikets to the local P.D. to get the sign-off. Not only did neither one of the officers even come out to look, both stated and I quote, "Those Troopers need to find something better to do." The local in Minden even told me "go ahead and put it back on I won't pull you over for that B.S." Both of these infractions got me to thinking. Has anyone else ever seen the typical Farm Truck covered with mud plate and all? Isn't that obscured? and what about the rear plate on the truck who's owner can't seem to back up without caving it in. Isn't that plate obscured?
    Thanks for letting me rant.

    I know in Alberta you cannot have anything in the way of the plate. whether it be snow, mud or a plate cover. Its all dumn i know a few guys that have been ticketed for having snow on the rear plate. Not very many people do a walk around and make sure the plate is visible. We are lucky we dont need any front plates they stopped that in the mid 90's, and look how well we are off. It probably has nothin to do with the oil right? lmao image

    I didn't read through most of the entries in this topic, so if it was already mentioned, sorry. I'm not sure about most states, but I know for the ones near me, WV does not require a front plate, the police use laser for speed detection. And I'll give one guess what they key in on when trying to catch your speed....yep, that front license plate. And they have a hard time doing so with tinted covers or no plate at all. Several cities in Maryland are notorious for stopping people to give them tickets for no plates or covered plates. Did I mention I'm SO HAPPY I live in a state where I don't need a front plate? biggrin image
