    Not following the law because you don’t want to “drill holes in your bumper” seems silly. That’s all I’m saying. I’m not exerting a bunch of energy lol it’s a message board, isn’t that what we’re here for?

    Fair enough, but it's clear that I don't care enough to be compliant.

    Now watch, in 3 weeks I'll resurrect this thread after getting a ticket for no front plate.

    July 1, 2020 though. If you don't have one now I expect for Law Enforcement to crack down on it for the next year.

    I have friends who have been stopped and warned here in Wayne County.  It also makes it open season to stop and search.

    Is this true? I'm almost certain this would not legally justify a search without a warrant.

    Right, what would their probably cause be? You don't have a front plate so we believe you to be a drug trafficker.

    From the ORC:

    http://codes.ohio.gov/orc/4503.21v1

    (B) A law enforcement officer shall only issue a ticket, citation, or summons, or cause the arrest or commence a prosecution, for the failure to display a license plate in plain view on the front of a parked motor vehicle if the officer first determines that another offense has occurred and either places the operator or vehicle owner under arrest or issues a ticket, citation, or summons to the operator or vehicle owner for the other offense.

    Seems like a missing front plate only comes into play if you commit another driving offense.

    Same reason people get stopped for license plate bulb out or brake light or head light, etc. ^^^^^^^

    (cop approaches vehicle, sees something inside)

    Since when do cops need an actual reason for searching a car? Feel like if your have a lightbulb out, they’ll call that the reason. And if you actually have shit in your car, they’ll say the search was justified.

    Sure, nothing is going to stop them if they're hellbent on searching. That doesn't mean it's a legal search.

    In that case, state you do not consent to any searches and then lawyer up.

    But it seems like cops are more likely to target those that likely don't know their rights, and/or don't have the ability to get a decent lawyer to fight it in court.

    I mean, it's literally the law, right? You cannot get a ticket for just a missing front license plate. It spells it out quite clearly.

    or issues a ticket, citation, or summons to the operator or vehicle owner for the other offense.

    Fri, Apr 5, 2019 12:23 PM

    Yeah right. That’s the way the seatbelt law atarted

    Fri, Apr 5, 2019 12:26 PM

    Considering they're removing the front license plate requirement in the near future, I don't see how that's applicable. 

    Fri, Apr 5, 2019 12:29 PM

    I kinda find it funny vball says they have both plates on their cars because "it's the law" but lol's when I post the actual text of the law as if it doesn't matter.
