Gotta love that one!
While parked at your house? That's not public safety, that's envy!!!!

I'm convinced the city/county of Denver has some sort of agenda though. I always park in a lot now b/c I've had 3 tickets in a year parking at meters. Haven't had the same issue in other cities though...

All that said, my husband got pulled over for not having a front plate on his E36 M3 in Parker the day after he registered it. He ended up getting out of it because he'd just driven the car here from TN. I think it really does depend on how bored the cop is.
Downtown meter maids are famous for ticketing for no front plate. But what else can they ticket you for?!?!? Must justify their existence, that's their agenda.

Just solely for no front plate. Ouch. That's what concerns me going out on a Fri or Sat night.
