Bay Area - Front Plate Issues?

I am moving this week, back to the Bay from Chicago. I have not front plate. How serious is CHP and local cops about front plates? Will I be ticketed immediately? How much is it? Thanks!

nah....

I have gotten one fix it ticket for no front license plate in 25 years of driving in the Bay Area.

Really depends on the cop. I have been pulled over for speeding, and not giving a fix it ticket for no front plate, when issued a ticket for speed. I would worry more about tint on the front side of windows, then no front license plate.

Well, but there are parking maids who are overly eager to slap a fixit if you ever street park your car. I got one about 1 year ago.

you are more likely to receive a front license plate ticket on top of a parking ticket rather than actually getting pulled over for it. This is for downtown area since that was where I lived back in the days.

They'll pull you over in SF, especially near Geary. Just got pulled over 3 weeks ago. Decided to just leave it on. Too much trouble for me.
