Huh?

You can't copy a generic plate as easily as a personalized plate?

Could he not get a copy of the plate of the car sitting in front of him, at a red light?

Wtf?

How do you cover a LICENSE plate? Your plate must be visible by all state laws...

Funny story about toll and plate recently with me. Guy that bought my pontaic g6 ask me to let him keep the plates on it for a couple of days. Sold it for 6 grand. BUT
he had ask me if I would take any less and was talking away on the phone. I had told him 5800 but he must of forget it. His wife handed me 6 grand in cash the day they got here. That was Saturday he was to bring the plates back monday. Sunday they went to VA and the toll caught my tag. I got a bill for 6 dollars for a north bound over the bridge and a south bound . I figured the 200 was worth the 6 dollar toll. I paid it. LOL

Have one of these on my 1947 plymouth. Flip it up to hide the plate at car shows. Probably not legal.

NC couldn't tell the difference between my NC plate and a British Columbia plate. And no, it is not personalized.

Best part is the only ways to dispute it are by mail or fax, like it's 1985 or something.

In Pa it's illegal to have anything covering your plate, including transparent plastic.

BTW wanna know cops easiest ticket to write? An obstruction of your plate. Is dealer "Jim's Honda" installed license plate covering ANY of your plate..LEO can write you a ticket.
