/Rant.....Sorry I just really hate Illinois.
This is why I love taking my mail halfway across the country, having an off the books job(yes it is a legal job, I just don't officially work), have no leases in the state, and have a military dependant id. They can't make me do SH*T. My car is registered and tagged in arkansas, my insurance and my liscense are in a very slow area in texas, and I live in new york. Ahhhh...screw the system...

NY- two plates
SC- one plate.

Having a front plate increases the radar / radar area so the hwy cops have more to aim at. :boo:

Washington state won't let you put covers over your plates either, and state troopers have tried to tell out-of-state vehicles THEY can't have them, due to using them to bounce the laser (they don't use radar any longer) off and being foiled.

The plate is actually one of the few flat metal surfaces they can aim at.

Neither do Corvettes.

I agree with no front plate. Auto manufacturers clearly don't want it there!

You can buy a spray-on coating that is invisible and deflects laser.

Just sayin'....

Mine does, it has a removable cover that gives the front end a smooth look if you don't have to mount a front plate.

I moved mine down and blocked the center part of the lower grill. It is slanted down and in and i just screwed it into the bumper. So my plated is visible but slanted down, wonder if this would foil the laser gun. I beat the top edge flat to meet the bumper. Would putting dimples like a golf ball onto the plate scatter the laser? Just a thought.
