COLUMBUS, Ohio (WKBN) – There is a new effort underway to scrap the requirement for a front license plate in Ohio.
The bill introduced Tuesday would only require a rear plate, saving the state about $1.4 million dollars in license plate production and distribution.
If passed Ohio would become the 20th state to require just a rear plate.
Law enforcement is against the idea saying that having front plates helps people report crimes.
According to a report from the Columbus Dispatch, A 2012 study by the Texas A&M Transportation Institute found that 97 percent of vehicles with two plates could be read by automotive license-plate readers, compared with 76 percent of vehicles with a single plate.
