I didn't pass inspection a few years back because of it. Unless the law has changed since 2007 then yes. I always used to keep an extra pair in my glove box in case.

Here's the most relevant Transportation Code I could find:

Sec.A547.353. COLOR REQUIREMENTS.

(a)A clearance lamp, identification lamp, side marker lamp, or reflector mounted on the front, on the side near the front, or in the center of the vehicle must be or reflect amber.
(b)A clearance lamp, identification lamp, side marker lamp, or reflector mounted on the rear or the side near the rear of the vehicle must be or reflect red.
Acts 1995, 74th Leg., ch. 165, Sec. 1, eff. Sept. 1, 1995.

You guys in texas have it rough with vehicle laws, I was out there this past April in Greenville, TX what a shit hole. Having to run a front license plate must suck.

Our vehicle codes are tough, but not strictly enforced. I haven't had a front plate on my car for over a year. I fully agree Greenville is a shit hole though :lol:

:word: I haven't ever had a front plate and have yet to have a problem. I think a lot of it depends on if the vehicle "sticks out" to the cop. If he notices a kid driving a lowered truck w/o front plate and a stock truck w/ an older guy driving w/o front plate which one is he gonna pull over? Of course the teen. All of my friends have problems with it but I never have

And I have the same bulbs as JB and never had a problem with the lights.

I have had my plate off for about 2-3 weeks now and I never get looked at either. I drive highway and city all the time and have never had a problem.

I havent run a front plate in almost 10 years now and I have made tons of road trips across the state and have never been pulled for it. Ive gotten stopped for other things but the plate was never brought up.

I've never taken my front plate off cus one of the local cops is a cock, but it will definitely be coming off when I get some stuff painted. I hope I don't get pulled over.
