I was recently in a discussion about front license plates where I mentioned that lots of LEOs use them as good targets for lidar.
Most states require front plates -- I think 17 of them don't.
Has anyone ever come up with a good reason why front plates would be required *other* than for speed enforcement?
Or are states using the excuse that they help to ID the car (which we know is pretty much BS)?
The plates and brackets are an unnecessary cost and they ruin the front of the vehicle's appearance IMO.
Anyone ever find out why they are required? If a good reason exists I'd like to know.
