Not all states require inspection stickers. We didn't have them in Nebraska. I now live in Virginia (a state that requires them). However I have lived here for 2 years and have never gotten my car inspected, I want it to remain clean looking and not have a giant yellow sticker in the windshield. I also refuse to put a front lisence plate on my car. I have been pulled over once for speed and the cop did not say anything about either of these violations

Lucky you! Haha. It looks better like you said. But actually... As of January 2012 no state in the USA requires a front plate. The law was forgotten when writing the updated law. Or something like that.

Not trying to call you out or anything but if this is true (and I hope it is). What is your source? I would like to have something to show the officer if I ever DO get pulled over for this violation, or atleast something that I could reference.

Google it. Countless people on here have mentioned it. One even told a cop that and didn't get a ticket

This says there are states that REQUIRE 2 plates? Is this info outdated? Sorry about throwing the thread off topic momentarily but I just want to make sure I'm right before I start argueing with a cop.

Wa state requires them. I am not going to drill holes in my bumper though and have yet to be pulled over. But I know people who have SUVs and trucks and have reviewed tickets.
