Bill to ditch front plate in TX... sign petition..

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

apparently a bill is being presented to eliminate the front plate in TX. It seems like it may have a good chance too. You can help by signing the petition.
Here it is:

the bill's author is Mike Jackson. We could write him in support....maybe it'd help.

I also found a petition here:

Done.

I hope it passes. I ordered my car without the plate bracket installed, and I haven't had a problem yet. I would hope, I will continue to not have a problem.

Seems to be hanging around since feb of last year.

Hasn't been too much of a problem around DFW area, except one time in Arlington.
Took a picture of my 996 with plate on it, submitted it for $10 fine and took the plate right back off.

I have heard this has been floating around but figured it doesn't hurt to try not like it's taking a ton of your time. Glad you all have signed it.

I wish this damn thing would pass already. A local cop (who has a grudge against me) cited me for no front plate. Being that I see him weekly I had to put the plate on. He may or may not have seen me going WOT on a sunny Sunday on an open road but couldn't pull me over.

Signed.

I'm not sure about this bill as the 2011 session hasn't started yet but hopefully Mr. Jackson will submit something when it does begin.

As a side note there has been some recent court decisions related to this topic. http://www.star-telegram.com/2010/09/23/2491718/courts-forward-thinking-decision.html

I tried to sign, but it said an error had occured. Something wrong with the site I guess. My car came with the front plate mount, I'm sure I'd have to get a new bumper to get rid of the holes. SUCKS!!!
