No Front License Plate in Maryland

177 Signatures Goal: 250

Drivers would need only one license plate per vehicle under a bill proposed by state lawmakers. Delegate Donald Elliott, a Republican who represents portions of Frederick and Carroll counties, is the lead sponsor of the measure. If passed, Maryland would join 21 states, including Pennsylvania and West Virginia, in requiring only a rear license plate. The bill would phase in the use of one plate as people get new plates. According to the Department of Legislative Services, the change would save the state $518,700 in the next fiscal year, and $719,700 by fiscal 2015. "They're looking for ways to save additional monies -- they ought to be looking at something like this," Elliott said. But the chairwoman of the committee considering the bill said objections from police and state toll workers may be too great to overcome. The Environmental Matters Committee probably will vote on the measure next week, Chairwoman Maggie McIntosh said. "Even though it seems like a very good idea and a lot of places do it, I think the objections are still there," McIntosh said. "But we have not yet voted on it." If you agree, please sign the petition and contact your delegate that represents your county on this board. The vote will happen late this week.

    I have a corvette that was not made for a front license plate and I shouldn't need one. Also it benefits the state to cut costs.

    Our neighbor state, PA, it is legal to run 1 rear tag, but not MD?!! This is frustrating because I have already ruined my bumper with self tapping holes for the front tags.

    I had to ruin the front bumper of my car to get a bracket, and just cause it's not the most expensive car in the world it's mine and I don't like 4 holes in the bumper.
