Does any state or country have a Decal "option" instead of a traditional license plate.

    A Decal instead of a license plate would help the aerodynamics and appearance of any car and could bring in additional revenue for the state. There are numerous license plate options in California all of which cost extra and they're very popular..Why not give owners of cars like tesla that option..

    This has been discussed in at least one other thread. Someone copied their license plate onto reflective vinyl and stuck it on the nosecone of their Model S. Some cops said it was a cool idea, but many other members including myself chimed in to say it is a forgery of a government document which could be proven to be a federal crime. Getting a ticket for no front plate (in Texas) is a small fine. Being convicted of a class C felony, much worse consequences. Great intentions, though ;)

    Yea, if you could print and make the vinyl stick-on for < $3 , the government clearly is gouging us.

    Who knows....maybe someone comes to their senses and offers that as an option in their state, maybe with a QR code as a "watermark" to verify authenticity and keep us all honest/legal.

    They offer multiple options for EZPass and EZPass-like toll payment systems now...it's only a matter of time.
