New Brunswickers will be able to officially take the front licence plate off their vehicles on July 15.

“The government committed to eliminating front licence plates, and we are following through on that,” said Public Safety Minister Carl Urquhart in a press release.

“Once the amendments and updated regulations are proclaimed, motorists will only require a licence plate on the back of their vehicle.”

Vehicles that weigh less than 4,500 kilograms will no longer be required to display two plates.
