i haven't had the front plate on my truck for 3 or 4 years because it always fell off or would be dangling by one screw when i got to my destination. it resides under my passenger seat. no tix for me yet. probably because there are so many other states that don't have front plates.
trailers are a different story. lights, tags, etc., are an excuse to get pulled over in hopes of finding something else.....
By the waterside I will lay my head.
Listen to the river sing sweet songs to rock my soul.
