I ride my bike from West Los Angeles to Santa Monica many times a week. The number of cars with only one license plate runs into the hundreds. This law should be enforced for a great source of income for both cities, instead of raising property and sales taxes, etc. Another reason: April 4, 2013, Beverly Hills, white BMW running down cyclist caught on camera with no front license plate.

While on my soapbox, let me talk about tinted windows. They are a road hazard and should be banned. As a cyclist it’s good to make eye contact with drivers. The California Driver Handbook states eye contact helps to avoid accidents. People who love tinted windows are those that text and drive, are car thieves, bank robbers, gang bangers, drug dealers and perverts hovering around our schools.
