But if it's already extended when you go for the inspection, I don't think they will look to see if there's a mechanism that would allow it to retract.

P.S. don't say you heard that from me.


I always hated the front tag in Maryland and to top it off, they didn't even issue a second yearly sticker for the front tag. You only received one sticker when you renewed. Glad Florida only has one tag.

I would think as long as you drive it with it extended it would be legal. Unless the mechanism itself makes it illegal.

I am glad we are not required to have the flat tag surface (laser aiming target) mounted up front here.

With all the camera lights it would be pretty cool to have one on the front and back


I would just like to find a more attractive mounting plate since I'm stuck needing a front plate in NY. The stock one is an eyesore for sure!
