Police nix bill to dump Ohio front license plates



Published: Tue, May 31, 2011 @ 9:25 a.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — A proposal to drop Ohio’s requirement for front license plates on vehicles is drawing opposition from law enforcement officials.

They say the front plates can make an impression on witnesses, and are picked up by surveillance and police cameras to help catch robbers or motorists who violate school bus safety laws.

State Rep. Rex Damschroder has offered a bill to eliminate front plates. The Republican from Fremont in northwest Ohio tells the Dayton Daily News that car enthusiasts don’t like the way they look, and he says neighboring states that don’t require them do just fine.

The newspaper reports that the Ohio Legislative Service Commission estimates that dumping front plates would save the state as much as $1.65 million in annual printing and other costs.
