License plate in windsheild... legal?

Hey everyone,

Well, I'm going without a license plate from now on since it looks like shit on my car. I had the screw holes patched up and everything. But now I wonder, is it legal just to throw the plate ontop of the dash so it can be seen through the windsheild incase a cop tries to stop me?

Eeeek!

Thanks for the warning, I'll just play dumb and say the mounting bracket fell off or something.

ALL but the plates given by the MTO are illegal. NO EURO PLATE. Also plate has to be mounted on the front most of the vehicle, which means the BUMPER.

putting the plate in the windshield looks dumb, don't do it.

It IS illegal, the $110 dollar ticket I got a few months ago proves that.

I got a $110 for having no front plate at all. I asked the copper if i could put it in my front windshield and he said that was ok and it's been there ever since, no problems even after i got pulled over for speeding, cop didn't say anything about the plate in the windshield..

Thanks Daft, I think I'm just gonna carry it in my rear seat foot well, and if a cop happens to pull me over, I'll put it on my dash right away, and play dumb.

"What officer? My plate has been there this whole time, I don't know what you're talking about?"

Hehehehe...

Yep, Illegal.. I've got a 110 $$ ticket for having a Euro plate on the bumper and ONT plate on the windshield.
Regarding Euro Plates.. I think section 13 of Ontario Traffic Act states that no plate other than issued by the MTO should be on the car = "confusing identity of a vehicle" So now my Euro plates are on the wall..
Since my car is black I just put a darkes smoked shield over the plate and in looks much better than just that hideous white square.
