This $300,000 Ferrari GTC4Lusso Prolly Should Have License Plates, But the Ferraristi of Frisco Generally Don’t Like Displaying Plates

Friday, December 29th, 2017

This is a 2017 model, so like I say, it prolly should have plates on by now. As seen on gritty Fulton:

But there are many benefits of running around without plates of course. I can name five* or six.

Of course people who have Hondas and Kias all seem to be able to display their license plates.

Go figure.

*Avoiding those pesky license plate scanners so that your future ex-wife’s attorney can’t track your wheareabouts years later.
Free bridge passage.
Your nabes might think you have the new and “improved” 2018 model (which mostly looks the same except it doesn’t have all wheel drive and it doesn’t have this model’s V-12 (prolly for all-important emissions and MPG reasons), so is that really better? IDK).
A clean look for your ride.
Showing the world that you’re just like Steve Jobs, who also went plateless as a lifestyle.
(Don’t say use tax avoision, don’t say use tax avoision.)
Etc.

CONCLUSION: Rich People HATE Front License Plates, Even Though They’re Required in California

That’s typical.

VEHICLE CODE – VEH, DIVISION 3. REGISTRATION OF VEHICLES AND CERTIFICATES OF TITLE [4000 – 9808] ( Division 3 enacted by Stats. 1959, Ch. 3. ), CHAPTER 1. Original and Renewal of Registration; Issuance of Certificates of Title [4000 – 5506] ( Chapter 1 enacted by Stats. 1959, Ch. 3. ), ARTICLE 9. Display of Plates, Tabs, and Stickers [5200 – 5206] ( Article 9 enacted by Stats. 1959, Ch. 3. )

5200. (a) When two license plates are issued by the department for use upon a vehicle, they shall be attached to the vehicle for which they were issued, one in the front and the other in the rear.

What’s that, does this law apply to your Mercedes Benz, BMW, Audi, Porsche and/or Tesla? YES, IT ESPECIALLY APPLIES TO THOSE.

What’s that, what about Steve Jobs? Well, he also regularly parked in handicapped spaces. Is he your lodestar? And if you want to copy him, you’d need to take off your rear license plate as well.

Sorry, rich ppl.

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?

Surprise! An MFG plate, for MANUFACTURING. And that means that Tesla can send out prototypes or whatever without an FLP

The Dashcams of Taiwan: Incredible Video of the Crash of Transasia Flight GE235 – Sullenberger-Style River Landing Saves Some Lives?

Wednesday, February 4th, 2015

Nothing goes unrecorded by the car dash cams of Taiwan:

TransAsia Airways Flight 235 looks to have lost a lot of power from its left engine. But assuming that the propeller blades of the failing engine were feathered to lessen drag, there’s no reason why a properly-loaded ATR 72 shouldn’t have been able to climb out to a safe altitude using the remaining engine.

There appears to be a lot of data recorded on this crash, so they mystery should be solved soon…
