    Lol, I used to live in Ohio and hated this. Like no plate in MI, don’t like paying $2800 in annual registration fees though when it was about $250 in OH for my 6 cars.

    I guess that’s why MI has such beautiful roads though /s

    Illinois will never change this. Too much money raised in Chicago ticketing everyone without a plate parked anywhere in the city, including the airport lots. It blows.

    I wish Texas would go the same way. And dump inspections.

    I’ve had a half dozen written warnings, but never been ticketed. 12 years with my C6 and 2 with my GT350 and no tickets yet.

    NY will never change their view on this either.

    "The front plate is for your safety." **** off.

    I hated having a front plate. That’s awesome that the 350’s front bumper will remain clean when I finally retire (or get stationed back near home if I’m lucky)!

    Here in Ontario we have to have a front plate as well. May of us run without on our pleasure or weekend cars. Its a stupid law that make zero sense. We pay for a new plate sticker every year for the rear only. No point on having one on the front IMO.

    I missed this and posted it over in General Automotive. I'm a little shocked. As much as people have hammered away at it, opposition has been strong from the 3M lobby and revenuers.
