    You should ask a cop in your area.

    There are no cops in the area. You really REALLY have to ask a senior police officer, desk guy. The patrolmen are rarely more knowledgable than you or I beyond what they normally ticket. Speed, paperwork out of date. I know the head dispatcher, they patrolmen are always calling in trying to ask the dispatchers to look stuff up for them.

    I have had covers on my wife's car for 4 years. CLEAR ones, tinted are definitely illegal in all 50. Clear may be, but you won't get pulled over for it in hawaii. Though if you get pulled over for being a jackass, they might just find more stuff to write up if they can.

    yea, they'll give out tickets, but only to meet their quota here. Speed traps pretty much the only thing they do. I hear they do a lot of domestic calls too.
    I mean who could cop when you're working 40 hours a week flagging traffic around construction sites on your days off.

    ok, well i can't see any picture on what your asking, but assuming your talking about the tinted license plate covers (yes?)....I have always run those on my cars....NEVER got a ticket for it and I've had cops stop me for speeding but not once did they ever say anything about my tinted covers.....didn't even know they gave out tickets for that.....i know that if you don't have a front license they'll question n tell u to put it on......but hell, i say jus run it......
