In MA some get away with no front plate because there is a mix in MA where if you have a green plate (old) you only need one and else has to be front and rear. My wife years ago ordered a stupid save the whale plate and now we have two plates on one car.
I keep seeing mixed opinions on Veil vs Laser Shield on the front plate. Since you might get pulled over either of those why not go with NO plate.
I was watching the other day and every once in a while you see a no front plate (with out a green rear plate). Usually on nicer cars that didn't want to drill front bumper.
It's only a $35 fine if the cops wants to be a real stinker most give a warning. I did read a forum where cops post and they did say they often use a missing front plate as cause to pull someone over and only use it for cause and rarely do they give a ticket.
I'm not sure of the laws in MA are covering a front plate. Since they are fairly soft on having ANY front plate.
I really don't want to be pulled over though.
