Question for the law enforcement people

Yes or No

Is not having a front plate considered a "moving viloation"?

It know it is wrong, just wondering what the law states.

When I had my temp plates (so no front plate) I got quite a few second looks from the boys in blue until they saw the plate on the back. It definitively draws more attention than I like to my shitbox.

If the cops are dicks they'll even roll you for having a clear plate cover.

Correct, and a $50 fine if a meter maid spots your car without one.

No front plate along with rar view mirrow obstruction are just 2 easy ways to have grounds to pull over a car and give an attitude check. If everything, along with the cop, is cool you get a "get that plate on" or a warning ticket. You give lip and you will be in a world of hurt. The last thing a cheesy stop needs is a smart ass. Your pulled over cause you broke the law, no mater how stupid it may be. Clear cover are another easy one along with loud music.... the list goes on and on!

Yeah Ponch is right ILVC mutha fraker.

I get this all the time, especially with my loud music - illegal window tint - Loud pipes and illicit saying on my rear window... You would be really surprised how much they get bent out of shape over these things!

Especially if you change lanes a couple of times and ignore their lights and sirens. Then they think they will be the next contestant on Wildest Police Chases, but then you pull over and their hopes of fame and fortune are shot down!

I did this by accident one day on my way down south, my music was so loud I could not hear the siren. When the officer finally got out of his squad and to the truck he was ready to blow a gasket! I explained that the pipes are so loud at 70 that I needed my windows up and the stereo up... He just stared at me and started to write my ticket!

The simple answer is NO, but it's more complicated than that. As with wrighting a ticket, the way things are handled from here is to the discreation of the officer. The things mentioned give the right to pull over and check license registration and proof of insurance. It is how you react to the traffic stop, the facors involved with the vehicle, demenor of teh occupants that can be construed as probably cause for a search.

I would be lying if I said "profiling " doesnt happen or the mind to search a car hasnt already been made up b4 someone steps out of squad. It hapens.
9/10 don't get "tude" answer only questions being asked, don't give more info than is required and tell the 4 lawyers in teh car with you to STFU. If everything is in order you wont get Rodney King'ed.

ROIGHT!!!!


just wondering, I haven't had anything to hid in 20 years. I remember being 16 and getting pulled over for "having a license plate light out". He ran my shite and scoped us out and said, "my mistake, you only have 1 license plate light." I was young and had long ass hair, I most definitely was profiled.
