Question Remove front license plate in BC - fine amount?

So how much is the fine for not having the front license plate fitted to the front bumper in BC?

Is it legal to have it on the dash?

$108 and 0 points for not having a front plate.

I think its $180 if you put it on the dash. Reaosn being if you go to a full stop, the license plate will fly backa nd cut off your head.

I think having it on your dash, draws more attention, then not having it at all.
On my last car, a Talon, I had no front plate for the entire time I owned the car, from 1994-2006 and never had a problem with the cops once.

I even had several speeding tickets during that time, and they never once said anything about the front plate

I had my front plate off for 2 days, and I got a ticket as well as a speeding ticket too. Went for a month after that, with no problems, but finally decided I'd better run a plate again.

I saw a mercedez driven by some mainlander who put the plate on the windshield (inside) by using mini-suction cups w/ hooks (like those for the L or N signs..

if you came to a stop suddenly, the plate's momentum would want to continue to carry it forwards correct? however, being a subie driver like yourself, i wouldnt put mine in the window due to the extereme acceleration our cars see on a daily basis. sudden acceleration would cause any loosely mounted objects on the dashboard to fly at your face at extreme velocity bludgeoning you to death instantly or possibly even decapitating you. *sad face*

I think they were too distracted by the the porsche to even care about the driver or license plate!

It just gives the cops one more reason to stop you- and then search for more, um, unsavory things in and on your vehicle.
