DT License Plate Frames: The Sortening

We interrupt our regular Mid Week Match-Up feature to bring this special announcement: First off, I'd like to send a tremendous thank you to all the folks who put up license plate frame ideas on last week's Coffee Brake post -- many awesome ideas were submitted and I wish we could make all the ideas...but I want to narrow this down to one design for a large batch.  So...time for a Hunger Games style death match.

  3. Please make your selection very carefully. This is the most critical vote you will cast all year and it will dictate which license plate frame will be on your car for the next 4 years.

  5. My wife got an expensive ticket recently for having an obstructed license plate. Her license plate frame mostly covered the registration tags on the license plate. Since then we've noticed that many frames have cutouts in the bottom corners for month and year stickers. This is something that is being enforced more aggressively with the onset of license plate scanners on cop cars (and tow trucks and repo guys too). Something to keep in mind when designing and using your frame.

    1. Here in NJ 'Unclear Plates' is a ticket you are happy to get. It means that the cop who pulled you over for speeding is willing to giving you a break. No moving violation, no points on your license, no increased insurance premium. Just a fine.

    2. Out in Cali plate violations are mostly dealt with fix-it-tickets, although it wouldn't surprise me if there was some moving violation they could throw at you. However, about 10-20% of cars don't run front license plates and cops don't care, and if you buy a new car you can easily go until the next model change before taking off the temporary tag on the windshield and installing your plates.

    3. I guess my point above is that I can't imagine a cop giving a ticket for a license plate frame covering part of the plate when many folks don't even run plates.

  7. El Donerino, because I am not into the whole brevity thing.
