No Front Platers vs. Parking Enforcement Officers

No Front Platers vs. Parking Enforcement Officers

[V2 of material – I was too anxious before, to share my discovery. Could have been a lot clearer.]

Some of us don't want to mount the front license plate even if required by law, e.g. California. A few in this group are getting professional help. :-)

Appears that Franz may be a member of the “No Front Platers.” In all of his beautiful designs, there is no obvious place to mount a front plate.

Franz Von Holzhausen is chief designer of Tesla Motors

I've been looking for five years, for a good solution for my particular issue. I sometimes go up to The City. My wife and I really enjoy the trips, but it does cause me some anxiety knowing that there’s a high risk of a ticket for no front plate – The City is notorious for this.

Finally, a solution: Snapplate

https://youtu.be/Ecnp9L3XZoI

So now, we drive up to The City, find a parking space after an exhausting search; then:

*** Snap on the front plate, shop and/or dine, return to car, snap plate off – no tickets.

As a retired IT Security Consultant, I appreciate its security design. By default, “Security Through Obscurity.” Not obvious how to remove the plate. If you have concerns and an extra 20 secs, you can install an optional, non-obvious security screw.

@Magic -- I wished that I had a better command of the English language. Would you describe yourself as malicious or venomous? Do you intentionally inflict your words on people? Do you think that what you do is funny - it's not.

I wanted to think, but I can't - that you are just lacking the filter that most adults have: Before one says something, they should ask themselves, will this add-value or be off-topic before you proceed to destroy someone's Post. For you, it's just another notch.

In a meeting, especially a business meeting, one shouldn't keep interrupting the meeting by saying what ever thought pops into their head. In real life, you'd probably be removed from the meeting after the second time. But this forum is not moderated, so...

If you can take advantage of this forum being not moderated, I guess that I can also.

Sorry for the typo Magic P Ball...

Durn it, another typo! Rats! Sorry Magic P Ball....

Shucks. Must be a problem with my keyboard… My bad Magic P Ball

@Ronjolly I like helping people. As you can see by the feedback you are getting only a few like the product but most think it is crap and solves nothing. A vinyl plate you don’t have to worry about is a much better solution if tickets are the worry.

Last time, like a broken record. this post is about a good choice for "Removable Front License Plate" to reduce the risk of getting a ticket when going up to The City. I prefer to not get a ticket, even a "fixit."

Where I live, I don't have an issue. But to be safe, I do put the plate on when downtown San Jose - any place where there are parking meters and parking enforcement officers.

I've been looking since 2014 for a good solution. Until now, I would place the front plate on the dash on the passenger side. Yes - that probably doesn't do anything.

I haven't had a front plate since 2014. Tesla delivered the car to me without one. I've seen other removables. I personally like this one. Yes - there are a small number of us, not that small, that do not want to put a front plate on their Tesla.

Your front plate sticker is not as ugly as an actual plate but it's not removable. I already knew about the sticker.

This Post is about a "Removable Front License Plate."

1. The one you listed is way to expensive for what it is
2. Would be a pain to constantly put it on and take it off just to park

I doubt the creator will sell many. If it's a need of your and you are happy with the product and the price then cool beans. Thanks for sharing as there may be another person out there looking for the same..

@raqball -- I'm retired. Don't have financial issue. Nice to be retired. More time to drive my Tesli. Road trips to see the grandchildren. Probably shouldn't say this, but I ordered it after seeing the video on Youtube. Didn't know then and don't honestly know now how much it costs. I just don't want the hassle of a ticket. Plus it's cool! Older people still say that.

For me it's not a daily thing. I just need it when parking "downtown', which I don't do very often. I keep it in the Frunk. I park, snap it on, shop and/or dine, return to the car, snap it off and back into the Frunk.

Plus having the FOB now [seriously Tesla] makes it "easy peasy" to pop the Frunk, snap the plate on or off and go.

@lbowroom - What are you talking about - needs just a little more explanation? Who are you aiming at?

Hey I am old and retired as well... I travel to see my son a few times a month but we don't have parking Nazi's here or if there are, I don't hear about them from friends ect saying they got a ticket. Seattle I hear is big on parking Nazi's but I've only been there once..

If you are happy with the product then cool... I assume there may be others out there who feel the same and would like the product as well. I aslo think there will be a lot of peeps who will scoff at the idea and / or it's price..

As long as you are happy with then that is really all that matters right?

ronjolley | 13 november 2019

I'm so disappointed in myself. I never make off-topic or no-value comments on other posts. I can't think of one.

But I do it on my own post. I let them get to me with their off-topic and/or no-value. Here I am helping kick dirt on my recently deceased post. People keep saying to ignore 8b and his minions, but it's so hard to do when they're killing your child in front of you.

So simple, before you write or speak - Is this thought that just popped into my head - off-topic and/or no-value. Yes, I know, we don't need a new way to express this. "Think before you speak!" doesn't need any improvement.

As I said in the other thread: Report Magic P Ball's disruptive behavior to Tesla ---> forums@tesla.com

If enough peeps do it maybe they will take action again. Trust me I know how hard it is to breeze past the nonsense he posts. I push back on him way more than I should and in the process of doing so, I am part of the thread derailment problem..

Apologies for contributing to your threads derailment..

ronjolley | 13 november 2019

@raqball -- thanks

This post is V2 of my previous Removable Front Plate post. 8 ball and his minions killed it in record time. I should take a count. I think that he made over a dozen comments with every one of them being off-topic or no-value.

So I wrote a lengthy post-mortem report and posted it. I wasn't surprised when 8b and his crew killed it with "Flag as Inappropriate". It's gone now. But it lived long enough to get some exposure.

Now I'm curious to hear from others. If I post the report again, what happens when it gets "Flag as Inappropriate" again. Is that when the Tesla people approach me. How many times before they banish me? I've kept everything. I think that I can re-post faster than 8b and crew can "Flag as Inappropriate" enough times. How many flags does it take.

I wrote the report to show the Tesla People if they approach me. We might both get banned. Oh well, it's worth the risk. 8b would miss the forum more than me. I would like to continue to learn things through the forum. if banned, I guess that I can still look; just can't post.

They are well aware of his behavior and recently suspended him for it.. email forums@telsa.com and I don't see where you've posted anything that would get you in trouble..

Tesla and Tesla alone can solve the problem. If they get enough feedback maybe the next time they'll make it permeant...

Magic 8 Ball | 13 november 2019

Rawballs is disappointed because can’t get me banned and makes up lies about Tesla suspending me. Tesla apologized to me, reinstated me, and since then rawballs is so upset he threatens with lawyers and when Tesla stopped listening to Boy cry wolf he started in with name calling, pathetic.

eandmjep | 13 november 2019

California needs the cash. If it's not banned, it's Mandatory! Plate up or pay up.

Popcorn for breakfast, this has been more entertaining than the Tesla videos on pornhub.

Btw. Yes, I have a case of terminal Peter Pan syndrome. Thankfully no cure exists.

Magic 8 Ball | 14 november 2019

Bullies try to bully Tesla to take action against others on a forum that the bully has no ownership rights to. I am a Tesla customer, so are you. Complaining to Tesla about other customers make you a bully. Tesla is perfectly capable of managing this forum themselves and the precedent on what can be posted here has been set for many years.

LostInTx | 14 november 2019

No front plates - with 30K miles and driving in Texas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah and Arizona, no issues.

Knock on proverbial wood.

andy.connor.e | 14 november 2019

Front plate is required in NY as well, and i see easily 25% of the cars on the road dont have front plates. If it was enforced at all this would not be the case.

Scrannel | 14 november 2019

California seems to enforce erratically. However, the meter maid issue is the problem. They strike when the spirit moves them.

You did get suspended for one week. Tesla did not apologize for suspending you. You were not reinstated because they made a mistake on the suspension. You came back after the 7 days suspension time ran.

More lies and made up fairytales from Pedo…..

Tesla did apologize to me. You were not party to the conversation I had with Tesla and it is obvious your lawyer threats did not pan out so now you are fabricating lies and name calling which is the same thing you claim you want to go away.
