Re: Dreading the day my tags show up

I live in CA as well, but didn't put my front plate on. I have a buddy who never had his front plates on any of his cars and has never been pulled over for it. I figure I rather take my chances than putting something on my vehicle that I think takes away from the look. Unless the design of the front bumper integrates the front plate, I refuse to have it on there.

Re: Dreading the day my tags show up

I lived in CA for 35 years and never put a front plate on any car I owned. I never got a ticket for it either. Also, even if you do get a ticket it's only a fix-it ticket. I was once ticketed for having a tinted windshield but the cop missed that fact the car did not have a front plate.

Many CA cars are delivered to the dealers without front plate mounts; the dealer adds them. I asked the dealers to not install them on the last three new cars we purchased there and all three complied. Only one said they would not be responsible for any tickets.

I love FL - no front plates.

Re: Dreading the day my tags show up

I am in TX and they are required here as well. The dealer gave me the Kit to mount the front plate but I have not installed it yet. I can't bring myself to put those huge screws into that new bumper on my white 2014. I know people who have run for years here with no front plate and never had issues but others who did get several tickets. I think I will take my chances for a while and see how it goes. I may look at other options like i have seen some people do with magnets etc..

Re: Dreading the day my tags show up

I also live in CA in Los Angeles and I was never lucky as the other people who live in CA. When I got my GC I didn't have the front license plate on but I got pulled over 3 times in a month for a fix it ticket. After awhile of getting stoppes i just installed the front liscense plate....
