I have often wished there were a list somewhere of rear-plate-only states.

Nice thing about the UK is the number is painted on the front of cars like the classic Jags.

RE: What to put on front bumper?

Cal always required front plates, but that was hardly enforced until cameras started being installed at intersections.

I got cited a few weeks after moving to SoCal from NJ. I could not remove the front plate bolts from the bumper (NJ winters) & had to break the NJ plate to get it off the car. I had to remove the front bumber to mount the Cal plate.

The Officer was not very sympathetic to my problem.

But then again, my brother has been driving in SoCal with only the rear plate on his car for years without any problems -- go figure.

The dealer might be required by law to deliver your car with two plates.

That’s more than likely the case. In Florida – and perhaps this is true in California – the car is actually registered at the dealership.

RE: What to put on front bumper?

THANKS to all of you who have replied!

I decided to contact the dealer asking if they would be willing to repair it and they were very gracious in offering to fix it. It's pretty common and the Business Development Manager who I talked to said they would be happy to take care of it.

I'll let you know you if they in fact do it when I bring the car in.

Thanks everyone. It's one of those little annoyances which stick in the back of your mind and piss you off as time wears on.

Yeah, let us know once you have this rectified and perhaps take a picture when it's done. Good luck, ab3.

I have often wished there were a list somewhere of rear-plate-only states. I'd move to one if it were convenient [8D] I *HATE* front plates. They look ugly, get beat up, and on certain cars, look worse than ugly, e.g. Jaguar XK, most Chryslers, etc. which have a prominent grille and no bumper to affix the plate to..

Michigan only requires 1 plate.[:D]
