This Expensive Tesla Model S Lacks a Front License Plate, Yet It’s Legal – One Simple Trick

Thursday, July 20th, 2017

So a certain kind of person doesn’t like front license plates, even though Cali is a Front License Plate State. Why, because it mars “the look” of their Porsche, Mercedes, BMW, Audi and/or Tesla. You know some of these people, Gentle Reader. I guarantee it.

Anyway, a subset of this group this is the cohort what takes years to put on their rear license plates, because, IDK, freedom? Because they don’t want to pay bridge tolls? Because they don’t want their, uh, affairs looked into by pesky family attorneys down the road? Because they want their rides to appear “brand new?” IDK.

And a subset of that group are those who drive around without plates but with an 11-99 CHP Foundation / Please Don’t Cite Me For Speeding Because I’m One Of The Good Guys license plate holder.

So that was the wind-up and now here’s the pitch. What kind of illegal behavior is this?

This was as close as I could get to the program next door due to the standing-room-only crowd. Emcee Melissa Griffinintroduced the always-dapper, besuited Senator Mark Leno, who presented an official certificate to Beth:
