Elimination of Colorado Front License Plate Requirement sign now

We, the Undersigned, petition the State of Colorado to revoke the current law requiring the display of a front license plate on passenger vehicles. 
We support the current and future licensing fee structure, but ask that the law reflect that a front license plate is no longer required. We believe that there are significant benefits in not requiring front license plates and our reasons for this belief are briefly summarized in the paragraphs below.



First, eliminating the need for a front license plate will significantly reduce the state costs associated with production, storage, and shipping as can be noted in the following legal document: http://www.leg.state.co.us/2001/inetcbill.nsf/billcontainers/E2E79473590B39FF872569CA00731F19/$FILE/HB1071_r1.pdf


Second, cars purchased in a state that do not require front license plates are not equipped with a front license plate mounting location. Those who move to this great state must then either deface and devalue their car by drilling holes in which to mount a front license plate, or spend time and money locating and installing OEM parts to be able to mount a front plate. Modifying a Collector's Edition or other Limited Edition vehicle can have detrimental effects on it's collectable value.


Third, a front license plate restricts the performance of passenger vehicles. Modern cars are no longer being designed with front plates in mind. Installing the mounting brackets that are necessary to hold the plates interfere with the cars' aerodynamics, often get damaged during the car-washing process

.

Forth, unnecessary damage is sustained from minor bumper-to-bumper collisions, because the front mounting brackets on passenger cars can cause cracks and abrasions to the rear bumpers of the cars that they hit.



Finally, police officers will be more productive in stopping dangerous motor vehicle violations such as drunk driving, reckless driving, speeding, racing, etc., since their time will not be compromised by a Colorado motorist who simply did not have a front license plate on display. 

Law enforcement officials might be opposed to a measure abolishing the front license plate requirement, as they might believe that losing the extra plate will make it more difficult for them to do their jobs in the best possible manner. However, there is no evidence of a decline in public safety as a result of the plate removal in the 20 or more states that have eliminated the front license plate requirement.



We the Voters and General Public of Colorado urge you, the law making officials, to remove this law from enforcement. As stated above, there are numerous benefits to no longer requiring a front plate on motor vehicles.



Lastly, We the Voters and General Public of Colorado are appreciative of the Law Enforcement Officers and Law Making Officials of this great state and will continue to support them in their endeavor to make this state an even better place to live.
