Front plates or no?

I know its illegal not to have front plates in NJ but is it like a case of tinted window?
How many people dont have there front plates? Noticed the car looks alot better without front plates.
Are they like tinted windows like getting pulled over on random based or is it more serious than tinted windows?
Just wanted some opinions.
Thanks

Please dont get a front plate. If you get pulled over, be very courteous and respectful to the officer. Tell him that you didn't know it was illegal

No front plate here either. Cops, while you may hate them, hate paperwork even more.

I do have a towhook adapter license plate ready to go if I will be travelling far out of my area

no front plate looks way better, although it does get annoying after two tickets which happened to me you start to ask yourself is it worth it? because i missed my train due to a cop pulling me over for no plate lol

Yea seems like state troopers and county cops dont really care but town cops are assholes sometimes especially where i live near Fort Lee and Pal Pk and Edgewater.

dude, you're crazy! You KNOW Pal Park and Fort Lee cops are the worst. They are gonna be pulling you over left and right for the smallest things.

But like everyone said, removing the front plates look SOO much better. I'm tempted, but I just dont want to go through the hassle of dealing with the cops, especially in the Bergen County area.

I'm sure the only reason why Jon (OP) got pulled over was the fact that he had an asshole cop pull him over. They are notorious in our area (especially Pal Park/Fort lee). Then again, in MOST of Jersey, cops are pretty lenient. I believe another area to watch out for is the Edison/Metropark area. Havent heard of good stories (especially with front plates + tints).
