Can I legally remove my front license plate?

I see lots of pictures with the front License Plate remove and want to remove mine too. Is it legal to take off the front one? I live in Illinois if that helps. Thanks! wave

Where can i find out? I check on the DMV website but it doesn't say. Is there a telephone line to the police for non-emergencies?

i live in WA and it is illegal here, but i have had the TRD front plate on my car for almost a year and have never had a problem. I have even got pulled over and given a warning and the cop didn't say anything but he might not have noticed.

Oh yeah, it's illegal alright. Take it from a person that had 7 tickets for no front plate last year alone! 25 bucks a pop.

they just look at your plates and see that you're from another state so they don't pull you over... i live in PA (where you don't have to have them) and used to work in NY (where you do) and they don't ever say anything because you're from another state... so they can't inforce it...
