I know in certain states they will give you a break if you stick the plate on the front dash. But maybe they figure you for a speed demon.
PM me before you go any further!Kaholo said:The problem in Hawaii right now is, that there is no law requiring you to have the DMV legally issued plates on a your vehicle - so thieves and street racers put altered or stolen plates on their vehicles to delay or prevent identification, and HPD cannot site them for a specific violation. All you have to have is (any) plate on the front and (any) plate on the back.
I know, as we say "Only in Hawaii". Supposedly the State Legislature is working on a bill to make it illegal to display "other" plates on a vehicle. Parenthetically it is still legal to eat dogs and cats here (some say black dog tastes best - better than red or silver), and we finally tested our Amber Alert system last Monday - last state in the union to do so).
Because of legal problem, and what the thieves and street racers are doing, HPD is now going to pay special attention to vehicle license plates (coconut wireless info from a cousin's cousin, bra).
It's not the site or the fine that bothers me -the officer is only doing his/her job, I just don't like to be pulled over and stopped in heavy traffic for investigation. Begs to have a Drunk or Ice user hit you from behind. (Paranoid - No, I know their out to get me).
Thanks to everyone for your support and ideas. Even my wife said "I hate that front license plate, it junks up that beautiful front end - wait a year and see what happens", but I think I am out of viable options.
It maybe time to get out the trusty old hack saw and whack the offending end pieces off the front license plate bracket, and then slap on some Por15 to keep it from rusting.
Of course, I bought my truck on the 8th of January and have not received the new plates from DMV yet. Dealer told me last week, that the State of Hawaii forgot to reorder plates and ran out, but "they will be here any day" . No need rush Bra.
