Pulled over for no front license plate

So now I have to get it put on. WA sucks. Anyone know of a state that doesn't require a front license plate? I'm seriously considering moving now.

He gave me a warning and didn't give me the $125.00 citation "this time". But he patrols same town I live in "oak harbor" so I can't dodge him very much longer. Here is what it looks like others are doing:

1. hideaway but requires drilling - http://www.swiftmotorsports.com/prod...cda12b7b10d002

2. this one is no drilling but takes some time to remove - http://www.bdspeedshop.com/item.cgi?...sm&part_id=184

I can't decide which to go with...

I went with Swiftmotorsports and I would recommend it if it weren't still in my trunk along with the front plate. I just can't friggin' do it.

ok i found what you meant at: http://www.ninosport.com/Altec-Remot...e-Holder-400EU

It looks promising for switching from city to highway driving.

promod55 can you post pics of the installation?

I would go with the ...................#1.
1. hideaway but requires drilling - http://www.swiftmotorsports.com/prod...cda12b7b10d002

Maybe you could lengthen the bottom piece so you could mount it in THE CENTER of the car. OFF CENTER looks very bad ...IMO
That one slides under which looks nice (in the photo anyway)
Bottom holes won't be seen.
OR ...you could use the orig. mount & mount it in the lower CENTER like on another Tread W/photos...........(w/Zip Ties With no cost to you )......& It did look Good.
OR ...you could mount it in the factory center spot, where it looks very good.
If you are going to sell in a yr. or 2...............the next owner will have to deal with the holes.............But if he is from your state he needs it anyway.

The factory mount does look good, IF like you said you MUST put a plate on !

Put the plate under your passenger seat - When you get pulled over put it on the dash. Tell him the front license plate bracket is on back order and your not gonna screw up the front bumper to accommodate a fix it law. If its the same officer pulling you over ask for the ticket. Go to the courts and get dealer paper stating you purchased the vehicle and tell the judge that the same officer is following you and knew who you were when pulling you over. Stress that its border line harassment and you want to file a complaint with his superior. He will not want to deal with the hassle every time he pulls you over. Worked for me and my corvette

I live in Ohio, another that requires it, I've used the "holder on b/o" several times, got my plate in a ziplock on the dash, doesn't obstruct the view. It's worked on my 93 pacecar sinse it was new.

go with the show n go plate. i have them for sale cheaper then swift. also i recommend taking the time pulling the bumper off and cutting the grill slots to fit it right in. now i am talking the bottom grill so it slides up to its original area. would show pics but i still have my car at the shop getting done for sema plus my front lower grill has been removed. it will take some time but would look great and be hiden better then the vids you saw on here earlier

my GOD do we get random responses... there is NO ticket he can give... no front plate is a secondary offense ONLY in WA.... yes its required, but unless you were also speeding or making an illegal turn, he can't do shit.

Can you cite the RCW section that states this? I've done some searching and don't see where it is listed as a secondary offense only. RCW 46.16.240 specifies that it unlawful to have only one plate, but doesn't say that it is secondary only. I'm also having trouble finding documentation of the penalty, but if it is really $210, that's crazy. That's more than DOUBLE the penalty for displaying an altered or borrowed or invalid plate!

i've put 3100 miles in a little over 3 months and drove around seattle all day saturday and never got pulled over, i know i'm probably jinxing it but if i get a warning or ticket i'll use the back order thing and then order one of the options to mount it without messing up the bumper
