Has anyone heard if there has been any new laws regarding the removal of the front license plates of Texas automobiles? I would love to reinstall my 'SVO Ford Motorsport' front plate after a fine officer of the law to me to remove it.

No change

From the current transportation code (available on-line):
502.404. OPERATION OF VEHICLE WITHOUT LICENSE PLATE OR
REGISTRATION INSIGNIA. (a) A person commits an offense if the
person operates on a public highway during a registration period a
passenger car or commercial motor vehicle that does not display two
license plates, at the front and rear of the vehicle, that have
been:
(1) assigned by the department for the period; or
(2) validated by a registration insignia issued by the
department that establishes that the vehicle is registered for the
period.

There was a bill introduced last year, but it never made it all the way through the state legislature. The way things work there, I believe that means that it would have to now start over from the beginning and be re-introduced and re-passed by both the house and the senate.

Thanks, Bro...the rumor mill has been brewing for a while. I guess maybe next year.
