License plate

I did a search for this and didnt find anythin so my bad if its been asked before. Anyone here know if its illegal to take off your front License Plate? I hate the way it looks on the celica! It doesnt fit in at all!

I think as long as it's visible. maybe put it behind the mesh in the front. I dunno, we don't need front plates up here in Alberta. grin

If your state requires front and back plates, then yes you're "supposed to" have them on. If the cops don't catch you, then you'll be alright. I live in Texas, but I registered my car in Pennsylvania just so I wouldn't need a front plate.

In some states they don't care, but they've made it illegal in others because it could become a sharp flying object in an accident.
