If you live in Michigan, you may soon need a license plate bracket for the front of your car.

A bill has been introduced in Lansing requiring front license plates for cars registered in Michigan.

Senator Tupac Hunter proposed the bill after a police officer suggested it as a way to prevent crime. Hunter says the front plate provides a reflective surface that can warn drivers when an oncoming car's headlights are off, and also help police track down suspects on the run.

It faces a bit of an uphill battle because of the additional costs of an extra plate.

Thirty-one states already have both front and back license plates as a requirement.

Indiana, like Michigan, only requires back plates.
