Re: California and florida License Plates??

Any Minnesota listers.  Just for the record.  I know from experience that
Minnesota requires front plates.  It is NOT a fix-it ticket,  it is 40 some
dollar fine.  I received a ticket on my windshield of my Audi when I was street
parked in front of my house.  It was given by one of those parking meter police
on the scooters.  Ouch!
