Most of the people in the survey said yes if it will save them money. Come on people you know they will not reduce the price. You would get one plate for the same price.

I say drop the front plate, I don't believe unsolved crimes in states with one are any higher because of it. Save the money of making it and move on to much more important issues!

As one who purchases his automobiles with the intent of having a nice looking ride vs. those who see a car as something to get them from point a to point b, i say GET RID OF THE FRONT PLATE!!!!

Nothing upsets me more than having to drill holes into a front bumper to install an ugly license plate on a car I just spent THOUSANDS of dollars for.

It's time for Ohio to STOP looking at every car on the road as a potential funding source and do away with the 2 plate requirement.

If you take away the front plate, how will they use the new electronic plate readers?

Hey Law Enforcement Members - Notice how many people will argue with the idea of making it illegal to obscure their back license plate. I would suspicion that these people would favor that they be allowed to have NO PLATES. Since making a plate unreadable is the next best thing to having no plate, we all know what their reasoning is.

Don't think having plates on a car doesn't raise the attention of law enforcement? Be sure to ask Timothy McVey about that one.

Since license plates ARE stolen off a vehicle, doesn't it logically register that you double the time it takes to steal a SET of plates off of a vehicle, increasing your chances of getting caught, especially if one of the plates has rusted/head-striped bolts holding it on?

Then, if the Perp on gets one of your plates (and law enforcement is vigilant) the mismatch plates, or only having one plate in a state required to have two (LIKE OHIO) makes it more likely for them to get caught.

armybrat - I'll tell you one reason WHY it hasn't "worked" in other states. Someone, committing a crime, will back into a slot with other cars or buildings behind the vehicle because THEY KNOW many people are too disinterested to walk past the vehicle to check the plate number.

I know a guy, from Ohio, that deer hunted on an abandoned farm in WV for years without buying a hunting license. He would pull the front Ohio plate off his bumper and back into the driveway of the farm, a couple of feet off of a WV State highway in Wirt County and was NEVER checked.

The above is one reason why, instead of Ohio considering going to one plate, WV should consider going to two.

Two Ohio license plates and make it illegal to cover the back one with plastic so that it CAN clearly be read, day or night.

One license plate is all any car needs. It has worked out for other states, so why not Ohio?

I would be happy if we could just pay the same price for our plates in Washington co. as the rest of the state pays instead of the $15 more that we currently pay.

THIS is what takes up the time of our State government? Didn't I just see a report that more people are on welfare then earning a paycheck in Ohio? Stop piddling around with the nonsensical and address the real problems. Besides it really ticks me off when the government talks about 'savings' and those who give them the money never see those 'savings' in their pockets.

Around half of the Ohio cars on the road only display one plate, nothing on the front, if it is agnist the law why isn't it being enforced? Why not just go with one only since it seems to be o.k. for the most of the people.
