Default Illinois Front plate law

Illinois currently requires you to have a front license plate, but that could change soon.

Our tint law has changed recently too, just a FYI for Illinoisans.

Washington will probably end up getting rid of the front plate requirement. Two years ago to save money they got away from the requirement to have tabs on the front plate. They could save a rumpus load of money if they got rid of the front plate all together.

I hope Missouri does this as well. Right now I can run only a rear plate because I'm not in Missouri. If I ever go back though, I'm supposed to put it back on.

Connecticut just charges us more.

There'* a front plate law..and my Step Monster works at DMV. She tries to tell me each time the Bonneville rolls up that I need to put on the front plate... I'm on 4 years w/o a problem from it.
