Re: A little petition help...

I agree the front plate really is a useless implement. I am so glad to not be in NY anymore...although I didn't have the front plate in NY either. I kept using the excuse that there is no place to mount it since the car did not ship with the brackets. INS at the canadian border were the only ones that gave me a hard time about it...but I guess that was my fault since I was quite rude to them and un-intimidated by them....for many reasons.

Quote:
First, eliminating the need for a front license plate will significantly reduce the state costs associated with production, storage, and shipping.
Very good reason to ditch it. $$$$ always talks. I would think they would save more $$$ by not making 2 of each than they would make from no plate tickets.

Quote:
Second, a front license plate restricts the performance of passenger vehicles. Modern cars are not being designed with front license plates in mind anymore because mounting brackets that are necessary to hold the plates, arenít being incorporated into the design, also interfering with the cars aerodynamics and often get damaged during the car-washing process.
I don't think that reason will hold any water. It was quite entertaining to read though, even if it is a run on sentence that just doesn't ever seem to end any time in the near future like i thought it might buy I was a little wrong in my thought process what do you think?

Quote:
Third, unnecessary damage is sustained from minor bumper-to-bumper collisions, because the front mounting brackets on passenger cars can cause dents, cracks and abrasions to the rear bumpers of the cars that they hit, especially with the increased parallel parking in most Maryland cities.
I see this as something insurance companies would like to back as the frames and brackets do pose the risk of additional damage.

Quote:
Additionally, police officers will be more productive in stopping dangerous motor vehicle violations such as drunk driving, reckless driving, speeding, etc., because their time won't be compromised by stopping or ticketing a Maryland motorist who simply didn't have a front license plate on display.
I don't think this will hold water either as the tickets are great revenue generators. Keep in mind, there are a number of laws in effect these days that merely exist for revenue generation.

I agree, but I think that they should be cleaned up before they are presented. There are a lot of morons posting opinions out there too. I do like the airflow argument though. It is a pretty valid point since plate location can restrict airflow and cause engine/cooling issues.
