    It has absolutely nothing to do with law enforcement, just a revenue generator. I my area the cities with the lowest crime rate are likely to be the most aggressive on license/parking violations.

    +1000. I used to see a Maserati Gran Turismo there periodically where the owner temporarily attached the front plate to the grill with a coat hanger while he was parked.

    My daily driver is a 2017 Corvette C7. I drive it all year round and use my 458 on weekends. I park the Corvette at the O'Hare parking deck periodically and last week I was welcomed back from my business trip with a $60 parking ticket on my front windshield for not having a front license plate. I was parked on level 5 of the deck, and it would have taken some effort for a police officer to get out of their car and walk around to the front of my car to see that I had no license plate, especially in a crowded parking deck. Guess I'll take Uber from now on.

    They scan your front and back plate whenever you enter their city owned lots at O’Hare.

    Thanks, that's what I thought. Got stopped and ticketed ($30) in Wheeling, IL last week for not having a front plate. I was not speeding, just got pulled over for not having a front plate. Guess I'll install the front plate and be done with the hassle
