Sign petition for no front plate in Texas

Doubtful this will do any good...but even if there is only the slightest chance...it's worth it, and it only takes a minute to sign

We own a 328 (daughter)-not happy about mounting a front plate... I also have an M5 and refuse to utilize a front plate; give me a ticket. I'm don't care. The front plate isn't happening... I live in TX. The front plate is BS.

We are. That said, we have a few items to clean up on our books, as all states do. For instance, we just cleaned up the lack of open carry... That "Tea enough" for you?

No front plate here either.

So far, it's cost me just under $200, but I don't care.

Signed. None of Texas' neighboring states require a front license plate.

I have one of the front plate holders that utilize the tow hook hole. I never run it unless I'm stopped. I will just tell them I had the dang car towed again to the dealership and they didn't put it back on. I throw it in the rear floor board when we go on long hauls. in Houston they don't give a crap it you have it or not. been stopped before by HPD and they never said a word. Now the DPS they are total azz hats about it. I won't get a rental car out of the Dallas with a state that does not have a front plate. I've been stopped before for it even though it was an out of state car.

I just got my new F30 in April and gonna chance it without the front plate...last 335 had the tow hook bracket. I see a lot of cars without one, mostly nicer cars and I always wonder if they get hassled.
