Default Front license plate needed?

Does Metro police pull drivers over for not have a front license plate? The DMV website says: Front plates are optional only if 1) the vehicle was not designed for a front plate and 2) the manufacturer did not provide an add-on bracket or other means of displaying the front plate. My front bumper doesn't have a bracket, but I could get it on there. I won't bother if Metro doesn't make an issue of it. Thanks.

Metro really isn't very picky about Vehicle Codes from my experience. I wouldn't worry about it unless one day you do get a ticket, worry about it then. I personally don't run one a front plate on my car.

We have a 1988 Aliante that has none. 8 years in CA 12 in NV nobody has ever asked. New Avalon has no plate holder. If you want it they can drill a couple of holes. But by not making the plate holder they use to have you don't need a front plate.

So no kit..no plate. We put both plates on the rear by the way. Just so we can find them both if ever needed.

So what happens if you put a plate on there that says Go EERS! or something instead of the proper plate? Wouldn't the cops notice? I've seen people do that and have often wondered if it was legal.

I didn't even know any states but Illinois required front plates. I guess there are still some.

AZ does not require a front plate if you have the "standard" issue plate

If you have vanity plates, then you need both

Im not sure if it is Metro, but my buddy got stopped for it while going over the Hoover Dam. His truck did not have a mounting plate, but it turned out that it was an accessory that was offered by Toyota, so he had to purchase the mounting hardware and get it fixed up. Then he had to have an officer check it and sign off on the ticket. Once he got it fixed the fine was waived.

My car also has no place to mount a front plate so currently it resides in the trunk. I have had the car for a year and have yet to be stopped.

There are people in my neighborhood who have their European plates on the front of their V-dubs and they say Metro has never had a problem with it. They have been asked about it by metro but never had a problem.
