Man, I was at a "photo" intersection in Sacramento (Howe and Fair Oaks) and I was the first car (in the front) at the light. I was stopped, well behind the limit line. I noticed about 4 police cars and 2 CHP's (Harley and BMW) at the '76 gas station accross the intersection. The police began to pull out just before the light turned green for me. I took off nice and easy and one of the Cops in the right lane was goin slow...... like 20Mph and I passed him, then his lights came on. I was like "F---, what now" and then I pulled over.

The cop was pretty cool and just gave me a fix-it ticket (my friend got fined $85) but now a have to put my crappy front plate back on......

man

If you get caught again it's a real fine this time.

Here's a brilliant idea. Follow the law and you won't get a ticket.

on second thought, I would probably have the tag just stuck in my front window the entire time, only attracting the bored officers in my area.

the fine is suppose to increase by 40% the second time and higher after that. I got 7 tinted window tickets in 1 year and it was $10 each time. I got off easy, Fresno is large and busy enough that the courts don't have time to look at everyones record for every fix-it

I have a front plate, I don't worry about it. But if you don't have the bracket anymore, it is an option. 99% of the time they won't pull you over for it anyway. I don't know about anywhere else, but the fine in Iowa is only like $5 plus processing fee if you were to get caught again.

That part was not directed at you, just those that whine when they keep getting pulled for ticketable offenses.

I've got a card that says I don't need one. I love the look of officer's faces when they pull me over for it, and I just show them the card.

I got the card because in my accident the mount was totally wrecked (stange, it wasn't on the car at the time!) and my car was still driveable. So I asked the officer on scene for a note so I won't get a ticket between then and when I get it repaired. He failed to date it. :D

My old 89 3.8l was sitting in a parking lot in anchorage with the front end away from the road. Hence I was backed in. When I got out of the mall. BAM:zbash: There was the ticket for no front plate. He must have been really bored or wanted to pick on my bird. Any way got home: got paid: mailed the 35 dollar fine off. No fix it ticket, just a fine.

GRRRRR Anchorage cops are known for there a$$holeness. It is like they are trained in it. "ok first you will have to take a$*hole 101."

Don't get me wrong I do not have anything against cops, I wanted to be one. There are good cops and bad cops. Too bad we mostly see the bad ones. Cause they tend to do the most picking.

Minnesotas laws suck also, 2nd only to California. The way it is here, if it's illegal anywhere in the US, it's most likely illegal here.
