we can't have them here. counts as a fraudulent plate, which is a ticketable offense. dunno about other states.

I prefer the front end clean and empty! However, if I had holes drilled in the front bumper, I might want to fill them with a Japanese plate!

I have to agree that I don't want anything on my front bumper! If only Florida would allow long style rear plates that would be nice!

its true! Most of those guys with euro plates have their normal plates in the windshield when a state requires front plates. same with rear. Even in Germany, us citizens such as the military have to get the square plates not the euro plates.

that's still considered illegal here, especially because the plate becomes a hazard in a crash.
State of Washington says they have to be visible from the front of the car. No mention of where. Also if there are no factory brackets on the front of the car, then no plate is required.

Oregon on the other hand requires it on the front regardless... and im pretty sure most if not all new cars have plate brackets on the front of the car.

Still... i think people who put plates on their dash are stupid. Like you said Haku... crash hazard and bodily damage from flying object. I have seen people with their VW's place both plates on the bumper... they make euro holders just for that... but that's just stupid too in my opinion. Like seeing a driving wall of plates on the road.
