Hey guys wuzzup, i just got back from california.
I was in town for 8 days.
I was wondering why so many cars out in cali, dont have license plates?
They have a plate that says the dealers name.
No numbers, nothing..
I noticed this on atleast 15 cars while i was in cali
Is this legal?

I lived in cali for a while and the only thing I saw a lot of were the plate extention things. Like, if they couldn't get the stickers for their plates, they'd buy an extention to put up in their window. It stated when their plates would expire or whatever.

I know one Mercedez that hasn't put up it's license plates for 3 months.
They just keep it shiny and new so cops think it's new.

But... I always see this beat up 7 series that doesn't have both plates.
I guess that way, cops can't give them tickets... right?

Yes, California gets window stickers denoting temporary licensing, while we wait for our license plates come in the mail.

I have "Sierra Honda" on mine right now.

It also does work for older cars too. My '00 Volvo S40 had no license plates registered, so I had to get mine in the mail...therefore driving with no licensing other than a window sticker either.
