A member at Puget Sound Toyota Owners Club has taken the time to put together an online petition to amend the law that requires vehicles to display a front license plate in Washington state. We need as many signatures as possible for this to make a difference, so please read it, sign it, and pass it along to as many people and forums as you can. I will be sending this petition to ClubLexus and NorthwestNissans.

This is probably the 5th petition I've signed in 2 years. As always I hope it works but Washington State is ghey about their license plates. I hate front license plates.

I know this is like the millionth petition, but front plates are extremely ghey, therefore, I will sign any and all petitions to get rid of them.

And to those that have signed it, thanks for the support!

why not spend the time gathering real sigs on a real petition for a voter initiative? the legislature doesn't read online petitions :p

Based on the number of votes cast for the office of Governor at the last regular state gubernatorial election, the number of signatures required for initiatives is 224,880. And those are real signatures of registered voters in the state of WA, not random people on the internet. :)

details are at the secretary of state's website:

:lol:

I got pulled over in my car, because the license light cover was dirty and wasnt letting any light out, to shine on the rear plate.
The PO-PO's told me, when peeps steal cars, they bust out the license light, so they can see the plate at nite. That was another BS story. Cops must read out of the same book :pissed:

Hell no we wont go! I think my car looks horrible with a front plate. Having a CWest front doesn't make it any easier. So, I dont even bother. I hope this passes.

I got pulled over three times and got yelled at from a 4 way stop sign. First time, I told them I just bought the car a couple months ago and the Fife Dealership said I didn't need a plate. He believed it and let me go, but still told me it was WA State Law to have front plates.

The second time was around the middle of 07. It happened exiting off of 512 Ramp onto I5 South heading towards Olympia/Portland. At the beginning of the off ramp there was a cop standing out side of his car with a radio. Then as you looped around towards the bottom. There was two cop cars with 3 cop standing outside waving people down that didn't have a front plate! I was like WTF! Are you serious?! Who actually has the time to wave people down for not having a front plate. Instead of looking for drug dealers or something more useful! So.. I got pulled over and looked through my review and saw another guy get pulled over. So, he asked for my License and Registration and I took like 3 to 6 minutes looking for it. I was looking my hardest and couldnt find it.. I was like [email protected]$#!!! So, he said never mind and let me off with a warning. =) I Was soo HAPPY!!

Third time was coming out of Muckleshoot Casino.. I got off with a warning.. :) Oh yea! The last one happened near my house. Was driving a little to fast before the 4Way and I didnt even realize there was a cop nor did I realize he was talking to me. It just so happened I had my window down and was looking his direction when I noticed he was yelling at me, lol. He was like, "Slow down! You were going way too fast. and get a front license plate!" Just gave him the Okay and drove off. I found it funny..
