In RI we can't have any windows tinted at all on cars, but if it is an SUV you can have anything tinted behind the drivers and passengers windows, stupid azz laws

Ya my last car was a white G35 and I tinted the windows all the way around on that. Had to find that "special" inspection station and ya I got pulled over for the tint once the officer complimented me on it but said it was still illegal. But he let me go with a warning and the knowledge that it was also a $75.00 fine if I got bagged again.

This is scary, lives in Nashua and drove a G35.

I'm currently driving a G35 and I'm trading it in on my Camaro any day now.

What has become of our fair state? Still ok to ride a motorcycle without a helmet, radar detector, no seat belts. How did the window tint thing ever pass? Where is Carl Draga when I need him?

yes, but you folks to the north don't have to pay that stinkin' excise tax. That's why so many MA drivers register their cars up there. It's a funny catch 22, eh?

Do you have to use the front license plate in NH? I'm going to have to come up with a creative way to mount my front plate every year for inspection time...any body have any good ideas yet? The guys at the shop I go to are sticklers about that.

How did you get a car without the front bracket for a plate?? They come standard on ones ordered for new england..(Yes NH does have the same laws we do on front plates - I think all of new england has to have front plates..)....

I live in NH.. no front plate on my car. My dealer likes me.. they didn't put it on..

I guess they got used to me pulling it off in their parking lot (I velcro'd just the plate on the front) to get the sticker.. after the mechanic pulled the car out of the shop, I pulled the plate off. You should have seen the look in his face.. He didn't know what to say.. It would have been worth a camera shot.. Priceless!

@ Tessa - same as 570hp; I told them I did not want the bracket on the front, especially seeing the rivets used to hold that bracket in place. They said their inspection guy is letting certain cars go - but only on the first inspection.

@ 570hp - Velcro eh? What is it stuck to? The bumper? That would have made great picture.

@ 2010 - $35? Were you pulled over just for not having the plate? Or were you actually speeding? Where was it, might I ask? And of course, how did you get out of it?

I got a $155 ticket for no front plate.
Trooper tore it up a few days later when I put the bracket on.
He told me his brother just picked up a black one 2 days earlier and knew the bracket came in the trunk.
Zip tied through the grill, clear mask on front, still won't damage fascia if I take the bracket off later.

Not true. The front plate bracket comes standard "inside the car" from the factory with all Camaros (not just NE). You can request the dealer not to install it on the vehicle.

I still have my Massachusetts "green" number plate from 1984. With the green plate you only have one and it's attached on the rear. I made sure my dealer didn't install the front plate bracket when my car came in. I am legal with no front plate in Massachusetts as long as I keep that green plate. They were discontinued years ago, but as long as the plate is legable they can't take it away from me.

Supposedly those are going to be phased out next year. The "able to read from 60 feet" was lowered to 30 feet this year. By next year Mass. sticker shops will be failing cars for not having the red, white and blue plates.

They actually started failing inspections and trying to phase out the green plates over a year ago for illegibility. They are trying to get rid of all of them, but as long as it's legible, at this point there's nothing they can do and you will pass inspection. There is no official mandate that you "have" to give up your green plate at this point. I'm sure it will come someday, but until then, I'll keep my one plate as mine is very legible even after 26 yrs.

I used 3 inch toggle bolts to attach my front plate to the lower grille. I think it looks alright and it's on there tight and can easily be taken off with a screw driver.
