    I lived close to forty years in Alaska where a front plate is required. Never gave it a thought, just put the front plate on the bracket. Now I'm in North Carolina where a front plate is not required. I have a new Tacoma and I want to put my St Louis Cardinal plate in the front, but I don't want to drill holes. On ebay.com, I've seen a "no drill front license plate bracket" for a Tacoma. Has anyone used one of these brackets? How did it work out? Does it stay tight? Thanks for your input.

    Yup! by law here in California. We have also traffic cams that takes pictures if you run a red light. So my county is required front plates, you will receive a ticket over the mail with your front plates and your face if you run a red light.

    The system sucks cause theres tickets given away for yellow lights. Time to go court at that point.

    No need for one here in NC, but I did get pulled in NY when I was younger for not running one.

    I kept it on the floor of my Gold Trans Am just in case. I remember the trooper's words exactly; "Did the state of New York issue you two licesnce plates boy? I suggest you get it on there unless you have some money you want to give to the judge".

    N'uff said, right away sir.....................

    I love when i go to WNY close to buffalo. no front tags and no inspection stickers on window. all the cops give me a hard look when coming head on, and some times i can look in the mirror and they hit the breaks and check to see if i’m from NY or not by looking at rear plate.

    i think one of the members on here makes a no drill bracket for front plates. could be wrong about it though.

    not much yet, I did tint the tail lights though.
    It's required in Utah but I don't run it. The dealership actually called me to ask if I wanted a front when it came in. I said no, good thing because they would've drilled a stealership plate on my new bumper.

    Nope. Keep the front plate under the seat so if they ask I say a screw fell off and am going to put it back on
