Ohio: No Front Plate Required

    1. Chad Monnin
    2. Petition by

      Chad Monnin

      New Albany, OH

1) Saves taxpayer money by printing one plate and increases funds to the state

2) In the 20 or more states that have abolished the front license plate requirement, there is no evidence of a decline in public safety as a result of the plate removal.  

3) Provides additional incentive for Ohioans to stay in Ohio and not move to Florida, where they have no state income tax and no front plate requirement.

4) All of the surrounding states: Indiana, Michigan, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Kentucky have no front plate requirement.  

5) The front plate increases aerodynamic drag and fuel consumption.

6)  The front plate restricts airflow into many vehicles cooling systems, causing the vehicles to use more fuel and to run at higher temperatures.

7)  Front license plates and the accompanying frames, screws and bolts can cause extra damage to other vehicles even in the most minor of collisions. Higher collision damage results in higher insurance costs. By removing the requirement for front license plates Ohio citizens would benefit by lower damage in collisions and therefore lower insurance rates. 

8)  License plates are not recycled and cause damage to the environment.  Ending the front plate would reduce damage to the environment.

      Ohio is behine the 8 ball in funding yet is wasting time and money stamping front plates. It does nothing but give the law a reason to get ticket money out of the people who already fund everything else in this economy (the middle class). Lower class doesn't usually drive vehicles, as the wealthy just pay their lawyers to get the ticket tossed out. The middle class doesn't have those luxuries! We vote the polititions in to office who make these petty laws, we should vote them out to get real useful laws passed and ones like the front plate law tossed out!Why is this important to you?

      I have a sports car that the plate restricts air flow and it looks terrible.

      The additional plate is just wasteful and serves no purpose.
