End Front License Plate Requirement for California

Nineteen states no longer require a front license plate.  They are the following: Alabama Arkansas Arizona Delaware Florida Georgia Indiana Kansas Kentucky Louisiana Michigan Mississippi New Mexico North Carolina Oklahoma Pennsylvania South Carolina Tennessee West Virginia Front license plates are awkward and unsightly and have NO real practical purpose anymore but since automobiles no longer have an actual front bumper the "fake bumper" and "grill" are blended together and have no practical place for a front license plate bracket. If placed improperly in a grill opening the air intake is impeded by the license plate which can slightly reduce the performance and reduce the efficiency of the engine and automobile.   There’s also most cars made after 2018 that say “license plate &/ frame or accessories may block radar system.”  Radar system on cars means safety support as follows: frontal crash, road departure mitigation, blind spot info system, collision mitigation braking system & etc. The brands with what includes the safety features/operation of the vehicle are the following:                           Acura-Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™), Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow, Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) Chevrolet-Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning,  Forward Collision Alert, Low-Speed Forward Automatic Braking Honda- Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™), Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow, Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR) The requirement for a front license plate is NOT enforced evenly - some police officers take it very seriously and issue citations while other police officers see the requirement for a front plate as not important. The way the front plate regulation is enforced is unfair to everyone. There are far more important duties that police officers can do. Let's keep Californians safe plus Let's save some time and money for California.
