Good luck trying to get 10 provinces and 3 territories, or 50 states and 1 district to all agree on just about anything. You’re dealing with regional laws and regulations, not federal. A lot of those separate regional governments first response would be “why the heck should we do anything just because someone else does?” I know that would be Texas’ response

P.s. same thing goes for allowable window tint levels, use of radar detectors, whether or not to observe daylight savings time, and all the other little bizarre differences across both countries.

I didn't have to drill one hole in my car and still got the plate bolted to the car.

I've lived in Dallas for 18 years and have NEVER had a front plate. No police enforcement even when I got gigged for speeding. RESIST!

Orrr you could just not put one on and pay the ticket for the once a year or so that you get it.
On my bike I relocated my license plate and deleted the mudflap, as most sport bike riders do, and usually get 1 ticket a year from a super trooper officer named James Casey.

visionguru lol i know what u mean, but the 1" layer of road salt covering it has already taken care of my car not being a sexy beast anymore . i never actually got a front license plate holder since I bought the car in FL. Maybe they probably didnt give me one... not the most competent of sellers (I kept saying Hondas are great and the dealer kept saying they are good cars. I think i sold the car to myself, really... or that was some next level sales tactic, probably the latter considering i did buy it). yeah ill probably go to the dealership here in Toronto and utilize my extended extra warranty or w/e and make them drill baby drill... it would feel like defeat tho and im all about #winning and #tigerblood.

RickBlaine not going to lie, I have thought about it and im defo pretty enough to pull it off, but i've already spent over a decade getting my professional designation so alas, next life. I will rule with an iron fist tho, none of this nonsense! and once i take over and fix the great Hhwhite north, im coming down south to fix your license plate issues as well! again with an iron fist, naturally. The oppressive license plate man is living on borrowed time! #ironfistsforeveryone . i am taking applications for #2s for each state tho so heads up! having an accord shall be all the qualification needed.

PS: I absolutely LOVE the autocorrect in red. this is my new absolute favourite forum

EDIT: didnt see all those responses lol

MikeNC- thats why the iron fisted rule! once i take over there will be no more license plates at all! total free for all. what could possibly go wrong

WhiteOrchid yeah but the bolting still makes a hole, no? or am i getting bolting wrong haha. either way, i wanna push my no-holes policy as far as I can

slimm1469 yea but thats texas. y'all are way ahead of the rest of us on quite a few issues! I long for the day when I can cap the mailman for being on my property ...

RickBlaine- they would see that coming from miles away tho... also, not a great swimmer . I wish honda sold amphibian kits now

Parisi- i wish. Toronto cops are different. A friend back in college had blue windshield wipers. He got a ticket every single morning at the same place for a week. I kid you not, the bacon explanation was that the blue windshield wiper holders made his car qualify for an "impersonating a snow-removal vehicle". that actually happened, i have seen his tickets. he got them removed eventually but yeah... that happened. pretty sure once they sniff out a 1 plate car they can f with, id be lost . btw how do u get tickets on a bike? Here in Ontario afaik it's illegal for the bacon to chase u if you are on a bike (public and ur safety and other care-bear BS like that). My friends here just put a sweat-thingy arm band over their plate and go ham. Re: trooper James Casey- thought it was a supertroopers refence. dude's hardcore AF it seems. wouldnt try to pull my 1 plate nonsense w him giving me the ticket potentially

China has the driver and car licensing as a federal matter, more or less. Provinces still issue plates, but the rules are similar across the board. I don't expect things to change in North America anytime soon.

Personally, I am so used to front license plates that I don't mind. Besides, we have BC Parks license plate or those wacky custom plates. I have a BC Parks one and it looks quite nice.



At least I can still legally have radar detectors, hah.

I've yet to see any state require a front license plate on a motorcycle. That would look pretty ghetto IMO. Dump the accord, get a bike.

UnknownJinX the good news is that soon they will take over the western world and we can ALL benefit from the benevolence and forethought of the great Chinese Communist Part! I for one welcome our new overlords and hope to not be sent off to a work-camp.

pretty sure radar detectors are HELLA illegal in Ontario lol. thats what bothers me- from what I have been able to find online, the only reason to have front license plates is so they can clock u from both sides w their money making guns.

GPz1100 its -35 C aka -31 F degrees outisde (ok fine WAS like 2 days ago). Even if speedbikes weren't more or less a deathtrap, pretty sure id freeze solid in these temperatures lmao. Bike use is 4-5 months here from what I am told by friends. Also isn't it illegal to dump on accords on this forum? O.o (gasp)

Personally I love the Florida way of doing things- I have friends who have their German EU license plates in the front and that still kosher. if i did that here im pretty sure they would send the RCMP and Canadian SWAT after me.

As I said, I did NOT drill any holes in my car to mount the plate to the front of my car. I could remove the front plate and the front plate bracket and there would be no holes in my car and you could not tell a front plate had ever been mounted on it. Look at the picture I posted earlier, my front plate bracket is not bolted to the bumper.

You just moved to Canada and already you're using their spellings. So finish your assimilation and bolt the bloody plate on the front bumper, where it belongs!

Never happen in the USA that’s for sure. Being a Republic, the constitution bars the Federal government from sticking its nose in such affairs of each State (that’s what the 10th amendment was all about and why the anti-Federalists wouldn’t ratify the constitution without it). Amongst many things China is not, it is not a democratic Republic.

Why not use some 3M double sided tape to stick it onto the bumper, and add some fake plastic screw head to the holes. Should be good enough to escape detection.

I bought my car in Florida and I have a front plate bracket. It’s in the plastic in the spare tire well. Including it is on every dealerships pre delivery inspection.
