There something like 17,469,547 cars trucks and busses in Texas. Granted some of those would still be required to have a front plate but lets round way down and say 17 million front plates no longer have to be made.

At 5 bucks a plate that adds up to a lot of money. Granted we probably woudln't see any of that money again but hopefully they would put it to good use paying down debt and fixing roads and what not...............maybe.

You know, a very, very hypothetical specific situation.
I thought he used that at one time as well.

I was looking at it from the perspective of the individual with the assumption that the plate fee would be reduced. But get your point.

I'm all for no front plate. But I will say I've found partial tags imprinted on hit and run victims. Not so much lately, but when the plates were still stamped it happened quite often.

UPDATE
Texas Single License Plate Bill Introduced in Texas Legislature to be Considered on Tues., March 12

Legislation (H.B. 657) to require the issuance of a single motor vehicle license plate for attachment at the rear of the vehicle will be considered by the Texas House Transportation Committee on Tuesday, March 12, 2013. The bill, favored by state hobbyists, would apply to passenger cars and light trucks.

We Urge You to Contact Members of the House Transportation Committee (Contact Info Below) Immediately to Request Support for H.B. 657

H.B. 657 would apply to all passenger cars used to accommodate 10 or fewer passengers and light trucks, including pickup trucks, panel delivery trucks, or carryall trucks that have a manufacturer's rated carrying capacity of 2,000 pounds or less.

H.B. 657 would protect the aesthetic contours of collector cars and relieve vehicle owners of the burden of having to create mounting holes on fabricated bumpers, etc.

H.B. 657 would save money, conserve resources and bring Texas in line with other states that have moved to a single plate requirement.

DONíT DELAY! If you havenít done so already, please contact members of the Texas House Transportation Committee immediately by phone or e-mail to request their support for H.B. 657.



Please e-mail a copy of your letter to Steve McDonald at stevem@sema.org. Also, please forward this Alert to your fellow car enthusiasts. Urge them to join the SAN and help defend the hobby! Thank you for your assistance.

I never ran a front plate the whole time I lived in Tx, only got 1 ticket when I was 17 and it was dismissed. It's worth the risk IMO.

I'm not going to run a plate up front. Them new oem front bumpers are way to expensive to put holes on it. I'll take a ticket and go to court.
