Here if the Inspection sticker or the State of issuance is covered it is obscured and a citation MAY be issued, it depends on who reads the law if it is a primary or secondary offense. Primary that's all that is needed to pull you over , secondary there has to be a primary you are cited for. Every state has a different inspection sticker requirement so check your local law.

in NH obstructed plate means there is something blocking the plate in which not all letters/numbers/stickers can be read. trailer hitch, bike rack, tinted plate protector, snow, dirt etc...

The state is covered - That right there is enough to get a ticket in most places. You can'y expect cops to guess your state based on the color of the letters on your plate.

That being said - If you aren't driving to attract attention - Probably not going to be an issue, but realize that you are in the wrong (most likely) if you do get stopped for it. Take the ticket and don't argue "But no one else has had a problem with it"
