Waukegan police will increase enforcement of motor vehicle equipment violations during the week of Feb. 4 with an emphasis on no front license plate, no rear registration plate light, and license plate cover violations. Vehicles must have a front license plate, and the rear plate must be illuminated with a white light making the plate visible from 50 feet. License plates must be displayed horizontally, be at least five inches from the pavement and not have any covering. Violations range from fines of $35 to $120. Police said some recent investigations could have been concluded sooner had vehicles involved not had those violations.
