Default I HATE TEXAS LAW! Front License Plate

Well, got pulled over taking a trip to West TX a couple months back. Hi-Po saw me coming and went in hot pursuit to catch me. Gave me the 3rd on having the front plate put on. On the good side, it was a warning. I see so MANY vehicles without front plates on.. Guess a Bonny really attracts 'em. So I am one that gets stopped.

Found a site to sign a petition: http://www.petitiononline.com/txplate/petition.html

Anyhow, THIS SUCKS having to put a front plate on. Does it look any better with a licence plate frame? Just plate only looks like crap! What did y'all do?

I got a holder from the dealer that mounted under the front bumper, and left the showing part in tact. Only used the bracket for about 4 monts though... lol

We are required to have a front plate in Maryland. It sucks!

Connecticut requires a front plate, I've been given several warnings. I am defiant.
