It's really all about increasing revenue these days...in CA they didn't used to care if you had the legally required front plate on or not...these days the intersection cameras operate off the front plates so they are beginning to crack down. Pretty bad when they don't even need a trooper to mail you a ticket...total revenue enhancement purposes...
