I've never ran a front plate on any of my cars here in CO... and I've had 7 of them over 13 years ranging from a Porsche to a very modified VR4 to an old beat up 4 Runner to the wife's Armada. Never a single issue with it.
I've got a really good buddy who is a state trooper from my car racing days. He said that the state actually wanted to do away with the front plate law (this was about 6-7 years ago now I think), but the troopers lobbied against dropping the front plate requirement. It is the number one way the can pull a car over and run info on the occupants. He says they catch more people with warrants out on them this way than any other way.
It used to be that it was just a fine, but last I heard it also carried points with it now. Not 100% sure on this last part as I’ve never gotten pulled over for it.

|SETI1x||Do the law makers not realize how much money the state would save if they didn't print/issue front plates? Most law officials I know don't even see the front plates unless you're speeding, driving backwards down the highway. Just sayin'.|

Well that all ended when I had to work on that project downtown. In less than a month I racked up over a dozen tickets at $75 a pop. Oh and if you don't get payment to them within 20 days of the ticket being issued it actually doubles to $150. There are some serious parking Nazi's down there.
From the best I can figure if you park in a private parking lot I don't think they can ticket you there (not for sure, just my personal experience) however if you run with no front plate like a lot of us here, don't park at a meter downtown unless you feel like tossing $75 into the shitcan.

B)Jeeps are too cool to pull over
C) Burnouts are really hard to do

|vince.parker25||Yeah I was thinking about buying a different bumper soon. But just wondering what to do for now. I think maybe the most logical thing might be to burn in two screws into the top.|

|JFjeld||I have a custom front bumper so I don't run a front plate at all. 5 years without a problem in IA, and about 1 year so far here in CO.|

License plate mounting.
Okay. So on the girlfriends jk. The front license plate is being funky. Whenever we take it to the octopus. It bends the plate because the pueblo dodge had the frame mounted with only two screws. It's mounted at the bottom and has nothing holding up the top. So how do you guys have your front plates mounted? Should I just burn two more screw holes into the bumper?
