Strange thing, I discovered that in 2012 the Minnesota House eliminated the front license plate, However when I contacted the Minnesota DVS (MNs version of the DMV) they sad they had no knowledge of this. here is one of many links to prove that this happened. Question is what ever happened to this? Obviously it never went into effect and being that i now see a handful of vehicles on the streets with no front plates but have MN plates on the back make me wonder if this finally went into effect. As of October (when my regstration is due) they still issued me two plates and the MN Statutes still state you need the front plates, this either means these vehicles I have been seeing are breaking the law or that MN has not yet updated their statute and most of us are simply not aware that we no longer need them.
