Here in MD the fine is $50 and it's a non-moving violation, so if you're fine with paying it, it won't hurt your insurance rate.

On my old 93 GLX I refused to drill holes in my front bumper cover and got dinged for no less than $150 total for not having a front plate.

Yes, in Washington state, you have to have the front license plate on, even since they took the front tabs off, but.........................................i don't have mine on, in 3 years :thumbup: .

In CA it's a fix-it ticket, but I've never gotten hasseled. I heard they mainly want them for lioght pixs, and when cops tag you with radar guns they aim for a flat spot on the front (lic.) to bounce the laser off of.

So you are saying that the cops only care for the speed traps, and not for safety?!?!?! NO WAY!!!!!! :shock: :shock:

I have a brother-in-law who is a Seattle area cop. He will stop a car for no front plates, but usually gives a warning. Not sure what the fine is?
