Front Plates

I bought my Camaro in Seattle about a month ago; I'm from the Tri-Cities and just received my plates in the mail today. Any Washingtonian Camaro owners putting on their front plates? I found out itís the law here. I would rather not, it would destroy the look.

hey i'm in othello
I have had mine for goin on 4 months and i havent put em on yet
you can get a bracket on ebay that uses existing screws and mounts under the bumper
also there are several threads with links to motorized mounts that hide under the bumper, one has a remote
if iget stopped i will play the backorder card and order one of the mounts that comes from underneath the car
hope that helps

I am in VA and front plates are required here too. There was no way I was drilling the front bumper. So I found someone who made a nice looking plate mount that could be modified to fit the Camaro. Here are some pics of it mounted on my car - http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showpo...6&postcount=45. You can find ordering information here http://****************/.

Here is the best solution I have found for the front plates. I don't want holes drilled in mine . But, don't want ot get pulled over for it either.

I'm not putting my in either. Spoils the look of the front of the car. I ordered a hideaway mount that goes under the front bumper when not is use. It came from drivingcomfort.com $49.95. Works really nice.

NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER

My car was ordered from a Michigan dealer and they don't have front plates in Michigan, so my car did not come with a front bracket (or maybe it did but I think I remember telling them to trash it).

I did, however, order personalized Law Enforcement Memorial plates. Cost me $85 and the money goes to a great cause, but in my experience the added bonus is that the officer tends to look the other way for minor violations in light of the support I've shown for their fellow fallen officers (and since I have a few police officers in my family I know what they have to go through on a daily basis)

I decided to suck it up and have them put on. I didn't want to give the cops any excuse to pull me over. I did stand over the guy at the dealership and watched as he did it. It went really quick and was fairly painless--for me.

I have been driving around Oregon and Washington for years without a front plate. And so far no tickets, even if I get a ticket I will just pay it and be done with it. There isn't going to be a front plate on my car.

I was only able to manage 2 months before I got pulled over in the Tri-Cities for not having my front plate. Couldn't bear to drill holes, so just jerry-rigged the bracket with some tie-wraps and you'd never know the difference!

We need to put pressure on our Legislators in Olympia to elminate the front license plate, Cost Saving for the State of Washington.....
Also need to flood the WSP, Equipment & Standards @ P.O. Box 42600, Olympia, WA 98504-2600 to get waivers to run w/o a front plate.

Not gonna happen. They are spending too much money on things like license plate readers that take a picture of your plate while driving down the road. Then compares with "hotlist" of stolen cars. I work with LEOs that use this technology and I was told "don't expect that law to change".

I informed these guys that I don't run a plate on my Camaro. They didn't seem to care. The only ones who will even bother will be WA SP.

It's getting colder but Hell isn't freezing over just yet. I'd love the idea but change isn't likely. I do support it for many reasons. There are other options for I.D. vech for theft: small Bar-code sticker in front. RFID tag. that could trigger an alert in the cop car. a lot of things. If you fear big brother guess what its already here but he ain't watching that close with that much crime happing, right.

I would start the process as soon as possible:
First I would send letters to my State Senators and Representatives and request that the Washington State Law be amened to exlude front license plates. This would amount to a cost savings and with the state budget being in the mess it is in now is the time to look for cost savings. I would also send a letter to the Governor stating the same reasons.
I do not have a front plate installed, will see what happens

when i got my car, i checked whether i needed it, cuz i reeeally didnt like how it looked. they told me no, so i took it off. then i got pulled over. he told me i needed one. i told him i asked before i took it off. he said they lied to me. so i called my uncle(who is a sheriff) and he checked for me again(i was right). i gave the phone to the cop who pulled me over. man, he looked embarrassed lol i didnt get a ticket. (now it is a law here, and i put one on, but im taking it off in the spring lol)
