Taking it to the shop? I would say I am taking it to the shop is a cop were to ask. You may still get a ticket (about $50 here) but if you take the time to go to court with a photo of your car WITH the front tag, you can most likely get the ticket thrown out.
I have magnets in the front of my clam that grab my plate with 50 pounds of pressure. I put more magnets in the front so the magnets grip to eachother. Works great! I still never or rarely ever use the front plate though.
Vision without execution is a hallucination.
