prototypepacifist I don't know exactly how big the cervinis lower grill is, but you could try getting some zip ties or something and just putting it on the grill down there. It'd look kinda stupid, but you wouldn't have to drill anything out.

*edit* A lot of people around here are into putting their LPs at an angle on the back of their cars. They actually get bodywork done on the car to have a little indenture for the LP just to have it be crooked. It looks horribly stupid, and I'd like to kick them all.

focuson03 another reason (at least in ohio) is so that it gives them something to aim their laser at to get a very accurate speed reading, the reflective coating provides for the best area. . .

captcomputer So if they are leaving the sceen of an accident, which end of the car are you looking at for a license plate?
Who is going to step in front of a car to read the plate, when you would be better off waiting till they drive by.
If Johnny Law is going to pull you over he is going to be behind your car anyway, Right?
Tell me this makes sence.

WD40 Here's a color code chart of which states require front license plates.
You folks down south have got it made.
Didn't realize there were that many states without the front plates.

Paolo in ontario, if you put the front plate on your dashboard, the police will give you a $110 ticket for improperly displayed licence plate, it has to be "affixed" to the "front" of the car, it dosent say mounted with screws, so you could easily tie wrap it or construct your own bracket so it doesnt put holes in your bumper.

The point is to make the tags more visible to police or other motorists in case of accident or infraction.

NC has no front plates, and people would leave the scene of an accident or crime all the time without being identified.

microtonal People here have been pulled over and given tickets for having their plate in the front windshield. It doesn't comply with state laws. Most cops probably won't do anything but it's within the law to give you a ticket if the front plate isn't mounted on the front of the car.

From Washington State RCW 46.16.240 - Attachment of plates to vehicles
"The vehicle license number plates shall be attached conspicuously at the front and rear of each vehicle for which the same are issued and in such a manner that they can be plainly seen and read at all times"

"Each vehicle license number plate shall be placed or hung in a horizontal position at a distance of not less than one foot nor more than four feet from the ground and shall be kept clean so as to be plainly seen and read at all times"
