Front plate tickets....Loop hole that works every time!!!



Here's a little trick I thought up that works like a charm and will get you out of those $110 tickets for not having your front plate on your car. It's simple and eazy.....

Just call your local police and report your front plate "missing" not stolen, just "missing". That way, the next time you get pulled over the officer will see that you have called in and won't give you the ticket! They might bug you a little but thats all...... I've done it , and it works great!!!

or simply just keep it i the trunk attached to the bumper trim and let the officer know it fell of while you were driving, and that you haven't had a chance to go to a mechanic to fix it.

whats the difference between Missing and Stolen.
How would you report that to a police officer? When you call in, and you say the front plate is missing, wouldnt cop say because its stolen?. How would you justify the missing of plate?

call the police station, and tell them you think it might have got ripped off in a car wash or someone might have backed into your car and you never noticed it till now. if you report it stolen you might be required to get new plates right away.

sounds promising but i can't think of a good enough excuse for my plate to just go missing hehe

"yes officer, my plate went missing when i installed my illegal aftermarket bumper"

"why aren't there any holes or mounting hardware on the bumper?? uhhhhhhhh........."
