Youngest daughter just bought a Miata. She doesn’t want to put a front plate on it. I don’t know the rules on that, so if you’ll tell me, I’ll tell her.

Yes it is required, fine up to $200.
Lots of people don’t have one anyway and there’s small chance they get pulled over for it, though if they get pulled over for another reason they will probably be cited for no front plate.

Yes that's why they give you two plates unless it's antique
Local PD don't force unless they want to pull you over
DPS will cut across the highway to get you

Haven't had a front plate on any vehicle in probably 15 years. Been pulled over 3 times for it....always a warning, never a ticket.

When I had a sports car I got ticketed for no front plate

Get some zip ties and figure out how to attach it to the front if you don't want to worry about it.

The daughter says she’s gonna live on the wild side, with no front plate.

My wife bought her car in New Mexico it doesn't have a front mount for the license plate so she never put one on. She's been stopped three times but has never gotten a ticket for it. Crazy thing is all surrounding states do not require a front license plate we must be special

Too bad it’s the younger daughter. She gets tickets, while the older daughter never gets them, and the older daughter drives like a maniac. The older one can charm her way out of any bad situation, whereas the younger one says her “resting bitch face” guarantees that she gets a ticket.

Just have her lay it on the dash and say there was no place to put it. If she is blonde that would help.

Not having one is just asking to be pulled over, esp. if it's a small town where the cops have nothing better to do.

You're not a real Texan if you can't pull your azz around to the front and install two screws in the front one. The Japs and the Germans have no clue.

Used to be the fastest way to a ticket on I-20 between Lake Charles and Lafayette was to have a front plate. You could be dead in the center of a group of vehicles and they would flip their lights on when you were still 1/2 mile away. Driving from Texas as easily revenue. If you said anything other than Yes Sir and No Sir, you would get all your stuff spread out on the side of the road while they retrieved the bag of dope they "knew" was under your drivers seat.

Not enforced. Too many out of state vehicles and high end vehicles that don’t even have a place for a front plate. Either everybody has to have one or nobody.

Required but not a big deal if you don't like to party

Don't put it on the dashboard unless you want your head cut off

Good way to get stopped for nothing.

Riding with two friends that were stopped for no front tag. One was one 45 going north half way between Houston and Dallas in a company car, he didn't know it was missing.
Let him go. Other was on 180 heading east from Palo Pinto, got a warning. Couple weekends later we were on the way out there to go hunting, he had the tag on his dash,
same trooper stopped him and wrote a ticket.
