If its the law, it has ot be followed, any good officer will know this. Lukily here we are only required to have the rear plates. But if it was mandatory id slap it on just to get them off my back.
Hell on my Tj, i kept the plate real low on the back bumper, i even used a hammer to bend the province's slogan underneath the bumper, to minimize the size of the plate. They never gave me problems. It how ever did cause a problem when i went offroading, i found my plate all mangled at the end lol.
