    Company gave me a rental and the truck only has a front license plate. I know some states only require 1 but I thought you at least need it in the back?? This truck only has a front plate

    Arizona lies to truckers and tells them they need front & rear plates, even though the states the trucks are registered in only give 1 plate per truck and that plate must be on the front. It's an underhanded way to make money.
    My guess is, those tickets are given at the end of the month, when quota's haven't been reached for that month.

    Its not Arizona lying. It is simply poorly trained Troopers........they used to be ARIZONA HIGHWAY PATROL.....in the last couple of years they became ARIZONA STATE TROOPERS. (I wonder what the bill to the taxpayers was for that changeover???)... I digress. Maybe Troopers are smarter than Highway Patrolmen and will know that a tractor only requires a front plate? Nah...... I doubt it.
     
    Chinatown Thanks this.

    Depending on your base plate.
    New York requires front and rear on a tractor
    Most only front.
