Not sure if this is too off-topic but I know that some of you drive pretty fancy cars that would look ugly if this passes:

... and, think about the effect on global warming too!

lol yeah i hate having a front lic plate and went for about 10 years without one untill i got 2 $70 tickets for it. I put it back on for now but prolly wil take it off again soon. I think they look ugly and also they get photographed by redlight cameras and speed trap cameras. Neither of which i ever violate of course.. but im just saying ;)

How do corvette owners deal with no front license plates? They are all over the place, don't they have some kind of special license plate thing for these types of cars?

San Francisco decided that those tickets are a good way to make more money. So now the parking guys give tickets for that too, even though it is not really their business, since cops don’t even care.

And they also started giving tickets for registration sticker.

I bought a suburban from a highway patrol with no front plate, he said it was illegal with out it. my friends bought a new range rover,it has a cheap bracket that drills trough the bumper, there were no holes there like corvettes and other cars.

Fuck that, I have my front plate in the car with some zip ties. When you get pulled over, just zip it to the front grill of the car and have the ticket signed off on the spot :).

My Subaru didn't have any brackets to screw the front plate into it either. Dealership attached license plate frame in with wood screws into the plastic bumper, pissed me off when I found out.
