I'd probably try to play an episode of COPS on your headrests as the officer approaches. They might at least think it was funny and let you off.

honestly..maybe say you just had your front clam replaced and they ordered you a new front bracket, but it isn't in yet. I have my licence plate behind my front seat to pull out if i'm this situation myself.

Sorry officer, I spent the money for a front plate bracket on these cool LCD monitors in the back of the head rests.

Getting your dealer to give you a receipt for a front bracket and carrying it with you has worked for me twice. Just make sure to tear off the part with the date on it!

I just picked up my Exige S 220 today and can't imagine putting a front plate on it unless I want to plow snow.

just wondering, does anyone keep their front license plate on their dash just in case? I've seen some people do this before...

Told a cop that pulled me over that the elise had a front plate exemption due to bumper height for the first two years and that mine was a first year model.
He let me off that one but gave me the California Stop ticket.

If Sweet Daddy were to make you a sticker like the one in the example below it might satisify the police even though it is technically not correct. Your prior excuses may work though with this attempt to comply. Better than a real plate by a huge margin.

OR - just move to a state which does not require the stupid things.

Good Luck -

I've been pulled over twice in nj for speeding, one 2x the limit. Anyways, in both cases the cops let me go with just a verbal warning. They both also mentioned the "missing front plate". Figured I would get off easy and get a ticket just for missing the front plate since they kept bugging me about it. I finally told the story about how the plate keeps hitting the ground and will damage the $10,000 front clam and that I would have to wait months for Lotus to ship a new one from England. Well, as I said, they let me go in both cases with just verbal warnings.

Besides, if you're being good, they shouldn't pull you over for just a missing front plate. I think they need a better reason to pull you over, although I'm sure they can make something up.
