Front License Plate Ticket

Amigos,

A couple of months ago I got pulled over for not having a front license plate in Ontario. I still don't have the front license plate. How bad can it get ?

Is it just $$ or is there some demerit point danger?

Good to know all the other crimes are solved so the cops can spend their time on tint and license plate tickets

It's a mixed blessing. On one hand, I'm glad Alberta got rid of the requirement for front plates several decades ago. On the negative side, now you get all the clowns driving around with front plates from places they've visited (not their real plate). Those are the ones I think should be fined. Cravenspeed sells a think called the Platypus, which is their take on a front plate mount. Not sure if it would meet your needs or not, but I know I'd hate to be drilling holes in my front trim to mount a regular plate bracket. There's likely other stuff out there, but this is one I know of from buying other "stuff" from them. Here's the link... https://www.cravenspeed.com/the-plat...ount-for-fiat/

I've been driving without a front plate since I bought the car and haven't been pulled over once.

My rampant speculation is that unless they drive past you and do a check in the rear view mirror, that if they don't see a front plate they just assume it's an "out of state" vehicle. I certainly can't blame you for not putting one on, as there's just no way to do it in a manner that doesn't detract from the beautiful looks of the front of the vehicle.

Did you use a lower mounting bracket, or did you drill your lower trim? Far less intrusive in that lower position, so if I had to mount one, that would be a good position. Well done.

Did you have the actual front plate with you, like in the trunk, or not at all. It means more to show you have it and offer a lame excuse why itís not mounted and promise to do better in the future.
