Front license plate - special place
Illinois is a two-plate registration state. The State issues two license plates for cars. One of them is supposed to be fastened to the front bumper.
Look where this one is. Carefully tucked in tightly on the dashboard. Out-of-sight. Unreadable. This vehicle was in the McHenry County Government Center parking lot on November 9, parked near the east public entrance.
I found that drivers have various reasons for not displaying the front license plate.
Some feel it interferes with the aesthetic appearance of the front-end styling.
Some avoid the small cost of purchasing a bracket to mount on the front bumper.
Others don't want to drill holes in the front bumper.
Still others don't want their cars easily identified by PhotoRadar in Illinois reduced-speed work zones.
Some think Illinois should issue only one plate and so they will display only one.
What do you suppose this driver's reason (or excuse) is?
