Attention Auto Designers: Front License Plates Exist
This is one of those things you’d think wouldn’t be actually needed to say, but based on recent automotive design trends, it seems to be necessary. Whether or not you think front license plates are necessary or not, the reality is that they do, in fact, exist. In 31 states (well, 30 plus D.C.) in America they’re required (if you do the math you’ll see that’s over half) and even bigger front license plates are required in Europe and most of Asia. An awful lot of modern cars appear to have been designed under the beautiful fantasy that front plates simply don’t exist, and it’s time for designers to wake up and accept reality.
