I grew up in England where the nanny state is perhaps a little stronger than it is here and the front end of vehicles had begun to attract considerable attention. The potential damage to a pedestrian who may be collected on rugged looking bull bars or pierced by an elegant but rather sharp hood ornament had, if memory serves correctly, forced the manufacturers to redesign the front ends paying attention to bumper heights and materials and make ornamentation "folding" to minimise the damage to a victim. I have no idea if any States here have adopted similar rules but I think it highly likely carrying bikes across the front would likely collect a ticket in much of Europe.
