Anyone know the laws on license plate frames, stickers, covers, etc. in various states? It’s always bugged me that SO many cars on the road have something other than four small bolts on them. I found the law when I was in SC, and nothing was allowed on the plates other than bolts or bolt covers no larger than 1/2". Despite that, at least 50% of all the cars on the road had something on them. I’m guessing it was a law that was routinely ignored (or not even known) by the cops down there, because there’s no way you’d get that many cars on the road if the law was even occasionally enforced.
Most frames obscure the state names on plates, and some of the stuff I’ve seen obscures the plate number. The “transparent” covers almost always make the plate hard to read, because that clear plastic never remains very transparent after just a few months of exposure to sunlight UV.
