Dealer forgot front plate in NJ Q?

So my dealer forgot to put a front bracket and plate on my car. Can I get away without one for long in NJ?

Thanks!

wow you got lucky they didnt fine you those 35 times, otherwise i would have cost you $1,800 in tickets...

My friend bought a used car, and on the same day got a ticket for not having front plate.

I guess sometimes you get lucky...

Almost a year with no front plate on my car and no issues. Driven around, along side, behind, and practically over cops and not a look in my direction. At this point Im almost asking for a ticket to make me feel better.

Then again, my philosophy seems to be holding true: The closer you live to the PA border(where they dont have front plates) the more they assume youre just a PA resident and dont look twice. The closer you are to NY(where they require a front plate) the more likely you are to get pulled over.

I have a couple PBA cards and a badge. But the last cop was a real prick and wrote me a ticket anyway

almost a year no front plate; knock on wood no ticket. al my other cars had no plate; no tickets either. guess i dont look suspicious. i say keep it off until it starts racking up like AutoCouture did.

the gominigo bracket is what im using right now.
decent product which gets the job done. although they could have maybe engineered it a bit differently to make it easier to put on and take off.

Is it that hard to take on and off? I just imagine you rotate it counter-clockwise then take the whole thing off...

let me repharse, pretty easy to take off if you dont mind bending the plate a bit a avoid scratching the bumper while you are spinning the whole plate.
Harder to screw on tightly cause you also need to make sure the plate is level after you fully tighten the lug.

i never get bothered. I don't have any plates on my sportbike. Only one town i did get pulled over and get a ticket, and that was Longport near Atlantic City. It was only $42. If it's 1-2 times a year, it's worth the $42-$84...
