Front Plate // NYC vs NJ

Should hopefully be receiving my G82 at the end of this month, and I've asked the dealership not to drill into the front bumper, as I refuse permanently mount a front plate on this car.

The car will be registered in NJ, but I work and spend a lot of time in NYC, so I'm wondering - do meter maids in the city issue missing plate tickets to vehicles with NJ plates, or do they only do that for vehicles with NY plates?

I'm considering getting a Sto N Sho mount just to be safe, so I can throw the plate on when parked as needed, but wondering if this is necessary.

Any experience / insight would be much appreciated!

NYPD cop once wrote me a ticket for no front plate (NJ plated car). But in 10 years of ownership I only got 2 tickets (one in NYC and one in NJ) so it was worth it.

Really appreciate the replies! I think I'll go without for now, and if it becomes problematic, then I'll opt for the Sto N Sho mount.

I've never received a ticket or been pulled over for no front plates (ny) but it gets mentioned when pulled over for other reasons. Not that I get pulled over often…..

Never ran a front plate on any car in the past sixteen years, never got hassled. You’ll be fine. My new M4C won’t have one either.

I just got whacked!

I was driving on the highway through a construction zone and wasn't speeding (but did speed Up after the zone, and a trooper followed me and gave me a ticket for no front plate and for window tints (which are super light!)

I don't street park in NYC, garage only, but I've heard you will get tickets for no front plate quite a bit.

I expected to only get a ticket on the street so was surprised that the trooper chased after me! I got a fix it ticket for the tints and they guys at the inspection shop Said the fix it tickets are gone crazy with all sorts of stuff being enforced that hasn't been for years
