CA requires one too. But I drove my Contour for 10 years without getting a ticket for having it missing. I only put it on when I sold the car, to save the new owner any grief more than anything. I would say leave it off and then see if the PoPo will issue a "fix it" ticket instead of a citation (if they can do that up there).

Bruin....yeah, I asked my PD to leave it off.

Oregon law is kinda funny regarding the front license plate. The way the law is written, you're only required to have a front license plate if you are supplied with two plates. If you are supplied with one plate, it is required to go on the rear of the vehicle.

The law also states though that passenger vehicles are provided two plates, so I guess I couldn't just tell the officer that I was only sent one!

BTW, Portland police love to give tickets for not having a front plate. One of my co-workers has received two tickets in the last six months while he was parked on the street in downtown! :D

Florida does not require front plates so we leave them all off unless someone wants it put on. I like the look of most cars better without them. Some people will choose a different car just because the braket is on the car.
Is it better to let people think you are stupid than open your mouth and prove it?

I thought that old CA "law" required a front plate UNLESS
the manufacturer did not provide a place to mount the front plate.

But, what is the CA plate-mounting "law" now?
