    Many thanks!! Like I said, it's been a long time. (eight years). Looks like it's been codified too. Thanks again.

      Virginia's window tint laws apply to any vehicle "operated on a highway in the commonwealth" - regardless of where the car or truck may be registered. Cruising through here in a jet black coupe with limo tint might get you stopped for further discussion.

      Me thinks that a grandma and a grandpa from Florida cruising down I-95 in their tan Grand Marquis will stand less chance of being pulled over than some young male weaving through traffic in his Acura Integra with dark tint and NY plates. Just sayin'.

          Nope Iowa needs a front license plate also.

          However registration plates are "per home state" in Iowa.

            Thats right. I believe 18 or 19 dont require any front plate still but even thats dropping fast. We like our cameras to get both plates for those nice red light runners.

            Nice for probable cause for a stop also ,yet weve kinda been told to check the back plate and if its out of state let it go if the issuing state doesnt require both.

              This matches what I have seen around the Hampton Roads area.

              I am getting the Mustang done when I get back from deployment, and am having it done to VA specs vice Florida, even though Florida allows me to go darker, just to avoid the hassle.

                Personally, I feel that state issued (or not, as in the case of Florida) front plates versus consumer applied window tint are two different ballparks. If the plate is an out of stater and I know they dont require both plates, absent another reason, I wont mess with them.

                  Massachusetts and every state on the east coast except NC and possibly SC, requires front plates. The only exception here in Mass are old green lettered plate series that were issued yrs ago, phased out but still all over the place. If they come through your state and you're curious, they are legal by mass law. Of course your state law takes precedent but just a tidbit FYI. As far as the tint goes, we're at 35%. If a vehicle has out of state plates and dark tint, by statute we can't initiate a stop based on that.

                    Roll through the 5 boros and you might get stopped. Alot of Texas plates in NYC are dirty.

                      SC is still rear plates only.

                        PA, GA, FL, DE and WV (as well as SC and NC) do not require front tags - but they seem to be in the minority of states. As "photo law enforcement" becomes more popular, I would not be surprised to see all states gravitate towards mandating rear AND front plates.

                          IIRC, there was a state that was considering doing away with the front plate because it saved some amount of money. I dont remember the state though. I will see if I can find the story again.

                          ETA: It was Texas.

                            I stand corrected. Thanks for the update.

                              The cost of the license plate is about one dollar.....................and spread that over the 10 yr lifetime of a quality plate.

                              Even the cost of mailing that plate to the owner is less than a dollar

                                I understand that. I was merely pointing out the basis for the proposed legislation as I was told.
