No front plate in SoCal - worth it?

    The car looks so much better with no front plate and I've been considering removing it but would like an idea of how much grief I'm opening myself up to, especially since meter maids can cite for it.

    People running no front plate in SoCal - how to often do you get hassled? Fix it tickets? Meter maid citations? It would be nice to hear from people in the Valley, the Westside, and mid-city.

    It depends where in Southern California...

    Parking at LAX, use a car with front plates...

    I haven't added them on the Model 3, but even our Roadster has a set installed.

    Hey,

    I don't have my plates, I figured I'd wait to get a ticket before putting them on. It's been over a year without one so far but I rarely park on the street.
