Q&A - Tinted Licence Plate Cover
I have had a tinted license plate cover on my vehicle for over 5 years now, and just recently i have been getting pulled over for it. The first event happened last week and the officer went to explain to me how they were illegal and that i should remove it immediately. Myself being the type that does not follow orders well, i left it on my vehicle. I had explained to the officer that i do regular highway driving and that my plate gets covered in bugs and rock chips if i do not have the cover on. He issued me a warning and let me go.
This morning i was pulled over in the same spot by a different officer. He asked me for my documents of which i provided, went to his car and came back with a ticket. He didn't ask me to sign, rather he handed it back with my insurance documents. When looking over the ticket in closer detail, he issued the ticket to me citing that i had violated "3.02 of the MVAR - improper display of plate" however i do not believe this to be correct. my plate is affixed to the vehicle correctly and in the correct position. in reading through your posts on this site, i believe he should have cited "3.03 of the MVAR - plates to be unobstructed". would this qualify as a ticket fallacy should i dispute this in court?
