  • Damn, finally got a front plate ticket for my euro plate...

    Well, I just went to my car at lunch to find a parking ticket for no front plate.
    I have a Euro plate on there, and I guess the cop was having a bad day cuz now I owe him $30.
    I will just put the stock plate on to get inspected, and then its back off for my euro one again.
    4 years without getting nailed for this, and finally it happens.
    Good thing I am getting a second car and I won't be driving to work anymore (got a go-ped to ride there on) so I won't have to worry about this again...

    anyone know how to get the fine lowered? I want to do it just for the sake of it

    Bro, I thought it was just a fix-it ticket. I have gotten a few and I put the plate on and get it signed off by a police officer then it is only $10.

    HTH,

      I just had a court date for having no front plate.

      My problem is that I cannot order new plates since my registration is not current. the fees are paid, but they will not issue me a new sticker until I can pass smog. Well it failed once again last week, so no front plates.

      I explained this to the judge and he dismissed the whole ticket! (it was an $1800 ticket, I ended up paying only $100 and a $10 court fee ) that shows why it pays to go to court!

            "can you tell the court your plate got stolen and you are waiting for a replacement"

            Do you have the report that shows the plate was stolen and that you have applied for a replacement? If not you're SOL.

                  I am just going to say I have this euro bumper and there is no holes for a plate (there arn't)... I will put the stock plate on but say that I am getting my new front bumper painted becuase the shop sent me the wrong one... it has worked before when I talked my way out of a ticket, but that was in person, this time my car was parked, it was defenseless I tell you!!
