Repeal the Front Plate Law in NY State sign now

We, the Undersigned, petition the State of New York to repeal 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 these belief are briefly summarized in the paragraphs below.

1: Eliminating the need for a front license plate will significantly reduce the state costs associated with production, storage, and shipping.

2: Front license plates restricts the performance of passenger vehicles. Modern cars are not designed with front license plates in mind anymore and mounting brackets that are necessary to hold the plates, arent being incorporated into the design. They interfere with the cars aerodynamics, lowering it's gas mileage.

3: They often get damaged during the car-washing process.

4: They cause unnecessary damage from minor bumper-to-bumper collisions, because the front mounting brackets on passenger cars can cause dents, cracks and abrasions to the rear bumpers of the cars that they hit, especially with the increased parallel parking in most New York cities.

Additionally, police officers will be more productive in stopping dangerous motor vehicle violations such as drunk driving, reckless driving, speeding, etc., because their time won't be compromised by stopping or ticketing a New York motorists who simply did not have a front license plate on display.

Law enforcement officials may be opposed to a measure abolishing the front license plate requirement, because 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, in the 20 or more states that have abolished the front license plate requirement, there is no evidence of a decline in public safety as a result of the plate removal. Also, since New York applies the registration sticker on the front windshield, and not on the license plate as a few other states, it would not lose a sticker mounting location.

Please consider our petition to eliminate the New York front license plate.
