    Thank you we appreciate it! We arnt out there to be jerks, just using the tools we have to do our job. If an officer/deputy/trooper is rude to anyone on a traffic stop odds are most of us would disagree with their behavior as well.

    VA has the same thing.... as I say it gives probable cause.

    In VA its a ALL obstructed rule technically window stickers will justify a traffic stop....

    Let me guess while you were pulled over for that he found out you were a felon evading warrants and you were super dangerous and they found drugs under your truck afterwards. OR you didnt have your front plate on and your not a felon and you didnt do anything wrong. No its got to be the first things because no front plate is a gateway to criminal behaviour.

    Ok I kid. But yes you will give them a reason to get pulled over. I keep forgetting to locate my 2nd license plate for the front and just getting some self tapping screws...

    I tell people that don’t want to put holes in their bumper, to use strong magnets instead.

    Buuuuut the license plates are aluminum so that doesn't work. Not to mention, there's almost zero vehicles made this day & age that have a metal bumper.
