As of July 1, twenty states in the US no longer require registered vehicles to have a license plate mounted on the front. Oregon currently requires a registered vehicle to have a license plate mounted on both the front and the rear of the vehicle.

A front plate is not necessary for identification as this can be accomplished with one license plate. 20 other US states have determined that this is sufficient and have implemented legislation to support this.

Beyond aesthetic reasons, the State of Oregon can experience significant economic savings from the cost production and shipping of a 2nd license plate whether or not there is a corresponding adjustment to registration fees.

For example, the State of Ohio, the most recent state to remove the requirement of a front license plate requirement, expects to save $1.4 million a year by making fewer plates. This is real money the state can utilize on other transportation related projects.

Finally, the State of Oregon has approximately 3.2 million registered passenger vehicles. The corresponding reduction in the production of 3.2 million front license plates will lead to less environmental impact from the extraction of metal, the manufacturing process and emissions from chemicals and paint.

This petition urges Gov. Kate Brown, the Oregon Legislature and the Oregon Department of Motor Vehicles to remove the state wide Front License Plate Requirement.
