I've had one warning a month ago after 40 years of driving in Texas. Never had a front plate on my car or my wife's.dbjr said:In Texas they give a warning and can charge a fine but I have been stopped 3 times in about 10 years and always just received a warning.....Better than drilling....
txAM99, Thanks for chiming in. Please do post pics. Moweraxle has had many good reviews on other forums. His is the one on the white Porsche in my previous post.txam99 said:I just had moweraxle make the very first "mold" using the tow hook. It was his first one for Fisker, so he needed my tow hook to copy the thread pattern. He makes a great product, high quality, i havent mounted it yet, havent had time, but i will post pics when i do. I have the same mount on my porsche, have had it for years, is really great & avoids ever having to drill your car. Tow hook is slightly off center, passenger side, in the bumper behind a round "plug". Pop it out & the moweraxle mount will screw right in. You can find them at moweraxle.com....the company owner is a great guy, very helpful, i highly recommend them. I'm in Texas & they WILL stop you without a front plate mounted.
Yikes! I have been playing the odds for many years (like most of us), but I think they are really starting to crack down on things like this....especially if you are pulled over for something else - like speeding!Bert Yetman said:Just paid a speeding/no front plate ticket in Bedford, Texas. It was around $150 for the plate violation. First plate violation in 32 years of driving in Texas. Young cop.
I would definitely be interested in getting one for my car here in California. The dealer provided me with a front bracket but left it up to me to put the plate on if I wanted to. I don't mind putting the front plate on if I can do it without damaging the front of the car. This seems like a very good solution.txam99 said:I just had moweraxle make the very first "mold" using the tow hook.

That's probably because you look suspicious regardless of what you are driving and how many license plates you have on it.Skibum said:I was stopped last night by Menlo Park's finest because of my lack of a front license plate. Friendly cop just gave me a warning, asked a few questions about the car, and sent me on my way.
