Police giving me trouble

Twice in the past two weeks I have been pulled over for no front license plate, I usually get no trouble at all but they've been picky lately. Should I put it on there? What did you guys do and his this happened to you?

Lol ive gotten like 4 fix it tickets for no license plate. It's a hassle doing all the stuff like taking it to the police station and then the court n paying the fine. So I just put it inside the car front windshield so they can see it and don't bug me as much

Re: Police giving me trouble

My mom did the windshield thing for 5 years on her 06 gt. Then she got a ticket from the officer who said she had had 5 years to put it on, she replied with "You've had 5 years to catch me"

We have the 2 license plate law as well. Cop pulled me over and gave me **** about it as well as my window tint. He gave me a window tint ticket instead of both. I'll continue paying the ticket. My car looks much nicer without the plate and I don't want to drill my bumper.

Are they're any automatic ones? I'd love to a cop to pull me over because I don't have one and just have it slide up before the cop walks to the front of my car. ;D.

They have a key fob I believe. You just press the button.

Yeah I was reading the reviews and it didn't seem like it was worth the money. I'll have to find one from somewhere else.

It's required in my state, but I told my dealer that I wouldn't buy the car if they put that bracket on.
