Texas plates

I'm pretty sure a front license plate is the law in Texas. I am not looking forward to drilling holes in my bumper when my plates arrive.
Does everyone ride with the front plate? I've also seen people display it on their dashboard or the inside front windshield. Or just go without it.

Which one do y'all go with? The people that do not attach it to your front bumper, have you ever had a ticket for it?

Just curious :/

Say no to the authority! Put it in your windshield or beside your seat and toss it up on your windshield if you get pulled over!

Texas shall fear me!

Same law here in Nevada. My wife's car is the same, no place to put it on the front. I told her to keep it in her trunk, and if she was ever asked about it, just play dumb and say "there's no place to put it". It also helps she's good looking. Not sure if it would work, but she's hasn't had any problems. She's had the car for 4 years. Just know you could be a target for being pulled over..so..be a good boy!!

A license plate would mess up the black out look. Good choice keeping it off +1.

Get that hide away plate from AM that requires no drilling in the bumper. It also comes motorized so you can press a button so it comes out and goes back in... I saw a Stang the other day with one.

I don't have the pic of it on my phone anymore but I posted it on instagram so if you guys want to see it in action follow me and it is the white one taking up 2 parking spots.

My wife's car hasn't had a front plate on hers for over 8 years. I don't have a front plate on mine neither

Oh wow. I'm surprised at the number of people that are rockin no front plate. I'm honestly thinking of leaving if off. One, I'm military so my car is registered in Texas but I live in Louisiana. The law here is only a back plate. I figured since the cops here are used to it, might help my situation lol. I do cross those state lines perty often though :s

You are very unlikely to get hassle from a cop for not having the front plate. There are a few jackasses out there though. But being military, you are required to have plates on your car as required by the state it is registered in to get in base. I'm military as well and since my car in registered in NC I only have one plate. The gate guard checks my rear plate for the state a coue times a month.

Oh dang. Yeah I didn't think about the gate guard. We have one gate guard that is a real ball buster about stuff like that.
