Back in 2019, Governor Mike DeWine signed a transportation bill that stated Ohio residents (excluding commercial drivers) will no longer have to drive with a front license plate come July 1st, 2020.
Obviously, drivers have the option to keep the front plates if they choose, but many prefer to ditch the front plate in favor of the ease and aesthetics.
Channel 5 came to Beechmont Ford and interviewed Chloe Williams on the topic, who stated that she is a fan of the bill’s passing, especially when it comes to pricier vehicles like Mustangs.
In fact, license plate bracket installation lowers the resale value of the vehicle, although Ohio is now one of only nineteen other states that do not require a front plate.
This may seem like a very small change, but The Cincinnati Enquirer predicted that Ohio will save $1.4 million each year by lowering plate production– pretty significant!
