Front License plate
I live in New York City and I am wondering if you can have no License Plate in the front. Can you get a ticket if you have no front License Plate.

on there defense they're just doing their job, it is a law to have plates in the front so if you dont have em, your actually doing something illegal.if a po po gives you a ticket for no front plates then you deserve it.
if you want something done about it then vote on the next election tongue rofl rofl happywink wave

If the state law says "Plate must be on front bumper", than i guess you're gonna put your plate on the front bumper.


see in florida our plates reside on our ass ends of the car, no worrying about drilling up bumpers. I think the front is a stupid place for a plate.

Think about it. Body kits don't have the 2 indented holes, makes the front look like shit, the plate is not supported enough only hanging by 2 bolts.

Ass end is better, it looks natural on a car. Plate is in it's own spot, no modifying front ends, no hassle.

I don't get why new corvettes don't have front plates on though thumbsdown
a special on tv was saying the best car to speed in would be a black corvette with no front plate as detecting the speed would be harder..

but places where they require you to have the front plate on the bumper is ...

my theory ..

1. Red light camera's at some stoplights ..so you get a picture of your plate in the mail..with a ticket..
(a guess..)

2. So when the po po tries reading your speed they aim at the plate as it is a flat surface... a corvettes front end would be a bit more difficult to get the speed.. happywink

I was almost certain California didn't have to. When I got frames for my new plates, my dad was cool about me not putting them on the front. Hes a stickler about the laws. But because theres the black rubber thing there, I should have a plate anyway. That was his reasoning. rofl

I don't have any in my front bumper... I got temporary for Chino meet (just 1 day: 06-05-04)...
... No problems with cops in MY neighborhood... happywink they know me... laughsilly
BTW If you got pulled over, tell the cop you got the car like that... he'll give you a "warning" ticket.. I'm not sure if that goes to your record... confused
