Post Missouri front plate petition

The petition has nowhere near enough signers to make a dent. Missouri should revoke the front plate so our front ends can look pretty.

Do cops actually care where you are from? I'm in Lebanon and Springfield and I have never had a problem. Oh, and dealers don't automatically put the bracket on the front because they know it looks horrible (unless it's a truck, in which case it doesn't matter).

Signed it! Hopefully, it goes through. I hate having dual plates.

If you're in a small town, then they care if you're not from their town in my experience.

I thought you were in Lawerence, KS where KS only requires one.

I've got the best of both worlds. I have MO tags since MO doesn't do emissions, and I live in TN, where they don't care about front tags I signed it anyway though.

I'm actually from Wildwood, MO—outside of St. Louis. I'm in Lawrence for college, but I'm definitely from the Lou.

Nice to see another state, guess I should put the Ohio plate petition in this section. There are over 7000 sigs with a bill that was put up in 2005. I am waiting for the dent to take effect.

Do you even have your front plates on? My Malibu doesn't. There's about a couple thousand other people in West Chester that don't use their front plates either...I don't think it matters.

I don't think anyone in Missouri is happy much with the plate's design. Apparently, from what I've read, it was not the design voted on by Missouri voters. I may get a Missouri State plate or something extra just so I don't have to get that god-awful plate. Missouri does not seem to be very progressive as far as license plate designs are concerned.

What part of MO are you from? We most certainly do emissions testing here in Saint Louis. I work at a shop that does the test.

I think rather than a petition to remove it (which the state has no motivation to do) we need a petition to make a personalized plate that you only have to have on the back of the car. Make it a fee for the privilege. Say $50 a year or something. If there is revenue to be generated, it will get more traction. I'd pay it. And for officers who pass you and see you don't have a front plate, they could have a special logo on the rear plate to easily distinguish it.

That would be neat, but unfortunately most cops in MO don't know state plate laws to begin with, and adding something like this would only cause more problems. My example would is having 18,000 lb plates on a truck. I have been pulled over for running the one issued plate on the front of the truck as instructed from the DMV, while the cop issued a ticket for not having two plates displayed on the vehicle.

I don't understand - Missouri plates always look like someone spent five minutes on the design and called it good. Kansas plates look like works of art in comparison. Anyways, I have no front plate.

i live in MO but all my vehicles except the vette are registered in KS. I have no front plate on my vette and i got a ticket for it, i went to the hearing for it and the judge threw it out and said there is no reason for me to make my car look like shit with the front plate on it.

We here in Nebraska have the same stupid law...required front plate. I have never put one on the front of my 94 Corvette, never had a problem.(knock on wood). If states want to cut costs, require only one rear plate...50% saved right there! BTW, I'm originally from St. Louis....Go Cardinals!

There is a bill in the Missouri house right now call house bill 58. Sponsor is Theodore Hoskins Of Berkley (St. Louis). The bill is to stop issuing front plates in the state of Missouri. He is selling it as a cost cutting move,where as the state would only have to produce half as many plates and save money. If you have personalized plates you would still get 2 plates because you pay extra for personalized plates. I'm assuming you wouldn't have to display the front personalized plate if you didn't want to. Check the Missouri state web site under HB58. At This time the bill is not currently on the calender but it's not dead yet. It would be nice if this passes but I don't run with a front plate on my Sky and so far so good for almost 3 years.
