California is one of 31 states that require a front license plate. Now that the plates arrived for our 2016 Chevrolet Volt, it was time to drill some holes.

    Oh my, you just DRILLED holes into your brand new Volt? Crazy. Of course, I guess its more crazy that I live in Georgia and work in Tennessee and that represents 2 of just 19 states that DON'T require front license plates.

    I'm so glad I live in Pennsylvania where front license plates aren't required.

    I would swap out those screws for stainless steel ones, as I always plan on keeping my cars a long time. If you are stuck with a plate, at least you can avoid the rust stains.

    Yeah it bites, but in West LA/SoCal/driving on PCH parking enforcement relish giving out tickets for this. And moto cops/hwy patrol love to use it as an excuse to pull u over. I had the bracket put on my car before I picked it up cuz I just didn't want to deal w the aggro later.

    Even though CA requires a front license plate, I've driven 20 years without a plate on my cars and never had a problem with the police. My most recent car just purchased 2 weeks ago, already had the front plate installed via drilling into the bumper. Sigh.

    No front license plate required here in quaint little Delaware. No sales tax either :-)

    As a European that moved to the US, don't get me started on the laundry list of stupidity regarding plates in this country.

    Me, too; it's one thing PA has right, anyway.
