Front plate crackdown



Looks like cops are being asked to enforce this more strictly now. I'm guessing because photo-based systems like the camera speed traps south of seattle and the Good to Go system require front plates and are getting more prolific.

Seattle has had meter maids giving out front plate tickets for years. They even patrol neighborhood streets looking for expired tabs and no front plates.

Same for Everett. I received ticket there for no front plate when I had my 128i. The only good thing about it was that it was much cheaper than if officer friendly from WSP was to hand you a ticket for the same thing, and no lecture on why I didn't have a front plate.

Not sure about the camera speed traps, but the Good to Go system doesn't need a front plate, at least on the bridges. I get nailed for the crossing fee every time I go over the 520, front plate or no...

If you have a good to go pass it 520 never reads the front plate.
