Drilling into a new coach is "fun," but once the plate is on you won't care. Take a couple minutes to line it up centered and straight and carry on. A couple of strips of masking tape gives you a surface to mark your holes and should reduce risk of splintering. Measure twice, cut once.

To make me feel a little better, I out rubber washers between the plate and paint. No one will ever see behind the paint, but I'm the OCD I guess!

I have talked to a couple different Virginia State Troopers a tag not mounted on the front of the vehicle & laid on the dash will by you a ticket & can by you another if you don't fix it before you move again.

Actually one told me a loose tag on the dash is a more serious offense than not having one due to the hazard of it flying in an accident. Loose tags on the dash have killed occupants in an accident.

Just curious where the information that loose tags on the dash have killed occupants came from? How many ?

I investigated accidents for 25 years on the Cleveland police department and can't remember anyone even being cut or bruised by one.

I'm not trying to be a smart ***** here....I'm just curious about information like that.

Just going by what the State Trooper told me........... According to him he tickets it when ever he sees it....... I was asking him if it was ok to put it in the window as the car in reference did not have a mounting frame & was extremely rare (I did not want to drill holes).........

I guess strange things happen....I just investigated where a 760 lb vault door fell & killed a woman. As she opened the vault door the pins fell out of the hinges........the door fell on her.
