    Ok so I got a no front plate ticket. Now I always thought this was a insurance surcharge, but I've been doing some research and have seen differing things.

    The actual law for the SDIP program is listed here: http://www.mass.gov/ocabr/docs/doi/l...gs/211-134.pdf with a list of surcharageable events in appendix A.

    Failure to have a front plate is covered by M.G.L. c. 90, 6. This is NOT listed in the 211 CMR 134.00 document as a surcharageble event. Expired inspection/registration is listed for example.

    Now I'm far from a lawyer but seems to be that as the law is stated no front plate is not surchargeable.

    Anyone have any other verified information on this one way or the other?

    Ive only gotten warnings for it, but am under the impression it is a moving violation as of a couple years ago

    I got a no front ticket like a year ago in South Boston.
    I paid it and it is NOT a surcharge, it does not show up on my insurance.

    When I got mine I did a lot of searching for that answer and in the end just got more confused, some stuff implied it was not and some that it was. But was very easy to beat, just brought a picture with it on.

    One of the things that I read in my searching was something about the first type of this violation not counting, could you please get second so we can see?

    I know I could probably beat it, but if it is not a surcharge I'll just pay my $35 and be on my way. Not worth taking a day off of work and going to court over if no points.

    Plus it costs $25 just to fight it. Would be great if we could get a definitive answer on this

    Same thread on quattroworld few months back. MA has no surcharge, but in NH it is points.

    Makes me wonder, if a MA driver is driving a NH plated car, could they just laugh at the cop ad not get pts? They realy enforce front plates and inspections in NH ... and in MA they now scan plates in traffic via cameras, seeinng when you have expired sticker(s)

    Here is where I found that there is no surcharge on first minor:
    http://www.dmv.org/ma-massachusetts/...-Massachusetts


    "The following is the current surchargeable point schedule in Massachusetts:

    Major traffic violation (such as DUI): 5
    Major at-fault accident (such as a claim over $2,000): 4
    Minor at-fault accident (claim of $500 to $2,000): 3
    Minor traffic violation (such as speeding): 2
    You get a free pass on the first non-criminal minor traffic violation, which will not be subject to a surcharge. After that, the points start to rack up."

    Good to know when I get my first speeding ticket it will not get a surcharge

    I believe the first surcharageable ticket does not add points, however you do loose credit for an incident free year, so you would go down to a 98 for 5 years I believe assuming you have a clean record to start with.

    Based on what I've seen the front plate ticket is not surcharagable so I will likely just be mailing mine in.

    Decided to pay the $6 to see my driving record, nothing in the last 10 years and think it's been over 25 years with nothing, I find that pretty amazing concidering when I was messed up I drove many times while in blackouts
