Just a quick rant. All you people who live in states where front license plates are not required, I hate you. :p

I wish I could get the clean look of some your guys' cars w/out front plates.

K, I'm done now.

Thirty-something states do not require a front plate. However, AZ might be the only state that is actively petitioning to go from rears-only to a front-and-back system again. (Arizona went to rears-only in '88.)

I've never lived somewhere that allowed only rear plates. Eh. At least in my state it's still legal to have plate frames. (Ha ha, NJ!)

What's it cost you to renew every year? IL is $78 for non-vanity plates.

No you dont have to pay double, I got my law emforcement memorial plates and tabs last year for like $75 and if I just had got tabs instead of new plates it would have been $35.

You're supposed to have a front license plate in Cali. :D



I've only been pulled over once but as far as I'm concerned there is NO WAY I'm going to ruin that clean look. :p

I had fronts on mine but took them off even though UT requires them. I stick my plate up in the front window whenever I park on the city streets though because I've been had by the parking nancy before.

I hate the front plate law too. i'm not too concerned with paying the small fine, but i don't want some cop to use it as a reason to pull me over for other possible violations.

Go to a junk yard and get a front plate bracket for any MKIII jetta golf GTI cabrio etc. Turn it upside down, and attach the mounting plate to the bottom of the painted part of the bumper (above the lower vents) orks like a charm. I have done this for friends that have MKIV, MKII etc..
