There is a chance to testify in favor of a proposed ohio bill to eliminate ohio's front license plate requirement.

The bill is HB107.

This would benefit all corvette owners who feel the aesthetics and aerodynamics of their car's are compromised by a front license plate.

Currently 20 states (including all those around ohio) already dont require a front license plate.

also, you may not be aware that the penalties for not having a front license plate were increased in 2004 from an equip violation (like broken turn signal) to a minor misdemeanor registration violation. $150 fine w/ possibility of jail time.

I myself have been pulled over 2x and given written warnings (ohio highway patrol and medina co sheriff dept) for not having a front license plate. That was the only reason I was pulled over.

If you are interested in testifying, you can let this lady know ASAP:

Here is her email to me. Unfortunately I have a work commitment involving travel and cant be there to testify or else Id be there on the statehouse floor !

Dear David:

Thank you for your recent correspondence regarding House Bill 107, legislation introduced by Representatives Slesnick and Damschroder to eliminate the front license plate requirement on motor vehicles.

Representative Slesnick would like to make you aware that a second hearing on the legislation has been scheduled for Wednesday, May 11th in the House Transportation, Public Safety, and Homeland Security Committee at 4:00pm at the Ohio Statehouse. This is the best opportunity for proponents of the bill to come and testify.

If you are interested in giving testimony, please respond to me at your earliest convenience, so that our office can inform you as to the full details of the committee hearing. Again, we appreciate your interest in HB 107.

Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions. We look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you,

i think a key to making this thing pass is to provide an alternative to those who object to it. Typically law enforcement lobbies against these bills.

The alternative is to provide a new special class of license plate('collector', vintage, etc.) , available at a $50 premium, to those vehicle owners who dont want to drill the holes, etc. in their expensive car to display a front plate.

Whats dumb is ohio currently has 'collectors' license plates, but you still have to display two. If your car is that nice, do you really think someone is going to want to drill the holes in the front to display a front license plate.

I think this would serve both parties (law enforcement and public well) as 99% of people out there wont want to pay the extra $50 to be allowed to only display one plate.
