    I never thought I'd see this happen. Today no cars in Ohio need a front plate. :)

    Pushed my luck for 5 years with no plate. Even the county sheriff who pulled me over for enjoying my car too much didn't mention the missing plate.

    I guess I don’t understand the anguish over front license plates. When I was a transportation director, my police associates made clear to me why unique identification both front and back was important for law enforcement. My Mini Roadster proudly carries both plates - but they must be unblemished, waxed, and looking like new. My apologies to my hero Dave.O.

    Don't understand your pride in your front plate. My brother in law was a police captain. He didn't mind no front plate, but boy he hated dark tinted windows. I understand that. He has 3 bullet scars on his chest from being shot by a 3 time loser with dark tinted windows. Never saw it coming.

    If my car had a front plate bracket I'd have run a front plate. since it didn't I never put one up front. Yes I know the police like them so their plate readers will work. Not really a fan of the big brother aspect of that.

    Supposedly it will save the state 1.5 million a year. Not bad I think.

    Now I'm going out to look at my naked bumper. You go out & polish that plate.

    All the best.... :Thumbsup:

    Cars are designed without stupid front license plates because they take away from the design and are not aesthetically pleasing to the eye.

    It’s my car, not the states, keep the government off my car. They already charge me for a plate, Registration, Yearly Inspection and Emission and Sticker fees that go with them.

    Also, cops love them because the are nice and flat to aim radar and laser guns.
