Ohio to drop front license plate requirement on July 1

COLUMBUS, Ohio A recent law change eliminating the requirement that Ohio drivers display front and back license plate will take effect next week.

Starting July 1, Ohio will join its neighboring states in only requiring a rear plate for most vehicles. The change, requested by car dealers and auto enthusiasts, was part of the state transportation budget signed by Gov. Mike DeWine in April 2019.

Under the new law, drivers can still request a second license plate for an extra $7.50 But a single plate will still cost $6.50, the current price for two plates.

Commercial tractors will only be required to have one plate, but it must be displayed on the front, said Lindsey Bohrer, a spokeswoman for the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles.

4. I would think that law enforcement would like the front plate to stay. I frequently

have a bike rack on the back of my vehicle. I hope that prevents the toll cameras from reading my plate LOL.
I will have to find anti-Trump plates for the front of my vehicles.

5. Down here

it keeps you from being mistaken for being a Northeasterner, who is likely going to try to grab that parking spot that you're both equidistant from!
