They all tell me to avoid the vows like the plague. At 42, marriage is becoming less & less likely.

Sedan_Clan, is having an upside down plate enough reason to pull someone over? Asking for a potential friend. Also, I’ve noticed some vehicles have a temp tag taped onto the inside of their rear windshield with dark tints which can barely be seen. Would you do a traffic stop?

It would catch my attention. If the purpose is not to attract the attention of law enforcement, that isn't the best method to accomplish that. Hiding in plain sight is a much better approach.

I can honestly say that I've never gone through, or seen, a DUI traffic stop.

I hope y'all weren't successful in that no one was driving under the influence. If they were, I hope you got them.

I haven't seen one in ages, but maybe that's because I don't drive late Fri & Sat nights like I used to.

I was just going to make a post asking why, but I realized the privacy benefit that might result with a certain piece of invasive tracking technology that is assaulting our personal liberties.

NY State V&T Law Section 402 makes no mention of mounting orientation, but does specify "conspicuously displayed" in text. Further sections go on to prohibit artificial obstructions such as clear covers, specify the minimum/maximum heights (used against lifted 4x4 pickups here), etc.

The online published legal opinions hint that the freedom of speech argument (flying flag upside-down in protest) do not apply to license plates.

My favorite rule in this vein is from the Formula SAE rulebook back in the day, where they had to spell out that all race car numbers had to be non-zero positive integers. I can only imagine working timing/scoring and having to enter Pi as a car number. Who would have thought that engineers would be so creative?

I've seen some cars from the Asian car show scene with diagonal license plates on the rear, with lots of body work to make it look factory. I wonder if there is a diagonal angle that would work enough to confuse the tracking technology without becoming probable cause?

With toll-by-mail being implemented all over the northeast, I suspect that one probably could not get away with upside-down plates for long anyway.....

Here in NYC the "Traffic" police give out tickets if your two windshield stickers (inspection & registration) are not next to each other (one above the other is bad), and if the inspection sticker isn't the one on the outside.
Picky, picky, picky!

So I get your point, but rules are rules and the law is the law.

When we still had paper drivers licenses there was an offence for failing to sign it in ink. That ticket was saved for special people.

And making money is making money.
I assume these are NY state laws, but only NYC seems to care about them.
Mayor Bloomberg said he loved the traffic (parking) police because they were the only department that made $$. But they don't give tickets for honking horns....

So you need to remember that cops are people, and like people they have pet peeves. I could frankly care less about tons of infractions, they often seem stupid to me. I'd lay the charge if you pissed me off but wouldn't hunt for it. Then there was other things that I would go after that pissed me off.

Some traffic guys just love those pissy little regulations for stuff like the window stickers. It's called human nature, cops are human.....
