There I was completely wasting, out of work and down
All inside it’s so frustrating as I drift from town to town
Feel as though nobody cares if I live or die
So I might as well begin to put some action in my life

Breaking the law, breaking the law
Breaking the law, breaking the law
Breaking the law, breaking the law
Breaking the law, breaking the law

So much for the golden future, I can’t even start
I’ve had every promise broken, there’s anger in my heart
You don’t know what it’s like, you don’t have a clue
If you did you’d find yourselves doing the same thing too

Breaking the law, breaking the law
Breaking the law, breaking the law

Just get one of those bear stickers for your back window, then you can do what you want.

Granted I display it in the front window, But I will have to get one of those gay black plate holders from the dealler...Like an IDIOT I forgot to take a brand new one out of the trunk of the LAST last SC300 we had

I've SEEN that car around the sound... on 520...wonder if it flys

Judas Priest rocks :D

I took most the plates off the front of my Cruisers, they just don't look right on a fj45 or 40......chances of getting pulled over are pretty slim unless LE is looking for a reason to pull you over anyway. Funny it was aa acting police chief that talked me into pulling the front plates off ;)

Did ya all know, anyone can get the LE Memorial plates..........which to me seems like a good way around getting pulled over..........but then again, a different ex chief got pulled over for 10 over on I-5 and was issued a ticket.....:D

Depends on how bored Mr. Cop is....

I got a ticket for that a few years ago. If i remember correctly, it was $71 at the time. About 5-6 years ago. I also received a ticket for "no litter bag" at the time.

I can't even count how many times i've gotten pulled over for no front plate. I got so sick of getting pulled over i put it back on, it wasn't worth it. Not to mention it is super expensive to keep paying. It doesnt matter what kind of car it is either....I know a lot of people think if you drive a BMW with no plate your not going to get pulled over vs a rice rocket with a coffee can muffler.

Plus not having it on, already gives LE cause to pull you over........So you have to be extra careful!

Well, the cars we have gotten from Texas..(salvage auctions) dont have front plates or holders for plates...since they arent required in Texas, I guess. So the front bumper covers are BEAUTIFUL...like the manufacture intended the cars to be...NOT with a STUPID BLACK PLATE HOLDER IN THE MIDDLE

ETA: I say a couple beamers without plates and a riceburner...

and I try to go with the traffic FLOW, not speeding so I'm pretty conformist, i guess....I'm just glad everyone else sees fit to go 75-80 down I405

Attachment of plates to vehicles — Violations enumerated.

The vehicle license number plates shall be attached conspicuously at the front and rear of each vehicle for which the same are issued and in such a manner that they can be plainly seen and read at all times: PROVIDED, That if only one license number plate is legally issued for any vehicle such plate shall be conspicuously attached to the rear of such vehicle. Each vehicle license number plate shall be placed or hung in a horizontal position at a distance of not less than one foot nor more than four feet from the ground and shall be kept clean so as to be plainly seen and read at all times: PROVIDED, HOWEVER, That in cases where the body construction of the vehicle is such that compliance with this section is impossible, permission to deviate therefrom may be granted by the state patrol.

License plate frames may be used on vehicle license number plates only if the frames do not obscure license tabs or identifying letters or numbers on the plates and the plates can be plainly seen and read at all times.
