I'm in a two-plate state, and the reason Ohio will NEVER go to one plate (like PA) is that our bright white reflective plates are the perfect target for the cops to aim their lasers at. Take away the plate, and you'd have to aim at the headlights. The words "revenue enhancement" are near and dear to the Ohio State Highway Patrol and many local departments. And, yes, I have been ticketed in the past for displaying only one plate. After the first ticket, I put the front plate on the dash, and was quickly warned that Ohio has a law regarding the "proper display of license plates," which seems to be purely subjective on the part of the officer.So now that I'm approaching forty and just don't want to be a bigger target than I am when I'm minding my own business doing 80 mph, the Vibe has two plates on it. It's just not worth the hassle when you least expect it.
