Does anybody know why we have a front license plate?? So many other States do not, and seem to get long just fine. Besides when traveling outside NY, it gives the speedtrap guys a heads up that we are out of state. We were told that by a law enforcement officer in South Carolina. The just look for vehicles with front plates. (either NY or Penn) Easy money. They know you won't go back to contest it, and they give you a mailin envelope with the fine already assessed. Let's save some money and use only one plate like everybody else.

You would think it would save the state money by only making one plate per car..right on Fred....
The majority of states require a front and rear plate.
Instead of ..right on Fred... , shouldn't it be Right Said Fred ?
Not even in the top 50 of my favorite bands, but I DO like their song, "I'm Too Sexy".
Have a Good Day!
Probably so the license plate scanners mounted on police cars can scan both on coming and traffic they following.
31 states require front and rear plates....don't do the crime and you wont pay the fine
Good post and of the 19 states that do not 6 of them have pending legislation to add the second plate.
As for the reason for two plates vs. one, I think it's because the (states) have determined that the convicts must be kept busy doing SOMETHING (besides other convicts, that is). Therefore, 2 plates = twice the work. Just my guess, though.
