I have a factory orignal 2002 Camaro ss which has no provisions for mounting a front license plate which is required by NYS law. I got a ticket the other day for not having a front plate. Can the court force me to modify a factory orignal car (which would entail drilling holes in to a car worth a lot of money) just to mount a front plate? Do I have any options/defenses other then to pay the fine and pray I dont get pulled over again? I heard federal law states that you cant be forces to modify a car jsut to mount a plate. Any truth to this?
