    Good news for Texas and Texans

    Found on Mazda Miada Forum Web Site

    No more front License Plates

    The Texas Law originally required that you have a license plate in the front and back of your car. The attached Article which just passed will now allow you to remove it.... Pass the good news on to all you know who love cars and hate those front plates!


    Looks like it passed and goes into effect in September....

    > SECTION 9.01. Subchapter A, Chapter 502, Transportation
    > Code, is amended by adding Section 502.010 to read as follows:

    > for attachment at the rear of the vehicle for which the plate is

    > including Section 502.404(a), a person is entitled to operate on a
    > public highway a vehicle that displays only one license plate if the

    Re: Good news for Texas and Texans

    So cops will be aiming at headlights for front LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging). And they may start setting up more rear plate LIDAR traps.

    For front LIDAR, I wonder if laser jammers will have a tougher time jamming a gun that is aimed at the headlight instead of the front plate where the transponder is usually located.

    Re: Good news for Texas and Texans

    Well, at least you only got 1 side of the car to worry about?

    Re: Good news for Texas and Texans

    Good for Texas! Somehow, I don't see this happening in California.

    Re: Good news for Texas and Texans

    lol yes! Go Texas
