    Front plates?

    Is it or is it not illegal to not display your DOT issued license plate on the front of your car? I've heard it both ways, from different law enforcement officers.

    If it is indeed illegal, the state could make a ton on revenue from ticketing about every fifth vehicle on the road.

    Not sure why this is in the basketball forum, but it is Iowa law that you have your front plate displayed on your vehicle (not inside).

    Re: Front plates?

    what the state should do is stop requiring front plates at all. Save everybody some money.

    Re: Front plates?

    Let's rank this one in the grand scheme of traffic violations. I'd agree. Costs more to produce the plates than there is value in writing someone up for not having one.

    Can someone tell me why we need one in the front anyway? If I'm speeding, you're going to turn around and follow me anyway right?

    Would also take away a UI program and could impact their graduation rates as well.

    Illegal but they only stop you for that after you have been drinking.
