Ticket for no License Plate DISMISSED!!!

I was driving home from North Texas when I saw the black Northlake camaro on the side of the road. Not speeding or doing anything wrong I drove by. WEll I catch lights in my rear-view mirror and he is pulling me over!!! :confused:

He asked me why I didn't have my front license plate on and I honestly told him I took it off when I waxed my car late last week and forgot to put it back on. I even had the plate in the trunk with the screws and told him.

He walks off and comes back with a citation...not a warning or hey try to remember but a ticket. From what I understand thats a 150 dollar ticket :eek:

I am about to go put my license plate on the car and drive up there after school Thursday to the courthouse. Anyone know if they will dismiss it? I had a friend in Arlington get his dismissed, it was honestly a mistake, it's not like I was lying to him.

EDITED>>>>>
Went to the municipal court/police house in Northlake today...

DISMISSED BABY>>> WOOOWHOOOOO!!!!!

I got one back in the day, I put the plate back on my Cobra with tape, took some photos to court and got it dismissed. Then took it back off in the court parking lot and drove home. That is just a lame excuse they use to pull people over and check their backround basically.

that cop is a dickhead, he is like one of the motorcycle cops.. if he bothers to pull you over, he will go down the list and write you up for everything. plus he brags about how fast his car is, he is like davidZ28 with a badge

Just HOPE he didn't take a picture of the front of your car. Some cops have been doing that lately and screwing people over. (You cant show your picture because he has one without a front plate with his cop car behind yours) Remember the law states you MUST have it on at all times.

Highly doubt they'll dismiss it. You admitted to taking it off too so you're probably stuck paying it. The ticket is usually around 100 dollars.

I'm glad that officer is working to make the streets safer. I saw someone driving down my street without a front plate, and I was outraged.

My car doesn't have holes or a mount for a license plate, so they can bite me.

Yeah dude I read your post. I was just wondering like people who had gotten tickets for stupid stuff and had gone down to the Courthouse in Northlake and what the judge said. I am definetly going to take pictures and go up there tomorrow or Thursday, I just was hoping to catch someone else who has dealt with Northlake and gotten a citation and if there is any ease at the courthouse on cutting people a break.

i didnt, but i was in the car when my friend did. he got reamed for all kinds of lil BS stuff, 4 citations, the worst being 4mph over the speed limit. none of it got dismissed, i believe he is still on probation too, and thats all his lawyer got him.. have fun

I live in Westlake and see him at the Chili's restaurant all the time, and I got that first impression of him being a real dick head cop, and that was before I noticed he drive's a camaro. lol

and late model Vette's are excused from this law????


I have never seen a Vette with a front plate.
Very few vettes and 4th gen firebirds run front tags.

I had mine dismissed in Arlington several years ago. The kicker was, I got it at a DWI Checkpoint on Green Oaks. The cop went around my car with a flashlight and fine toothed comb to find something. :rolleyes: Although the DA wasnt going to dismiss it, the judge ended up being cool as shit and said fuck it. No court costs, no nothing. Cool ass judge. That DA was a fucking cunt.
