Yeah, yeah, yeah . . .
Here in California, front plates are required also. There's no waaaaay I'm gonna mess up the look of my vehicle with a front plate/frame. I don't even run a rear plate. What I do do (putting those two do's together always crack me up
) is this: I keep my plates in the car along with a screwdriver. If I ever get stopped (haven't yet -- fingers crossed), my story is that I took photos a couple days ago and didn't want my plates in them for security reasons (I'm placing them in a "classified ad"
). "But officer, I can put them on now if you'd like . . ." Get the picture? Just my tactic.
