I have been looking into the new state law from S.B. 439. It is evidently a somewhat ambiguous law as it leaves a lot for interpretation.
According to the law with regards to covering up your license plate:
(a) A person commits an offense if the person attaches to or
displays on a motor vehicle a number plate or registration insignia
(1) is assigned to a different motor vehicle;
(2) is assigned to the vehicle under any other motor
vehicle law other than by the department;
(3) is assigned for a registration period other than
the registration period in effect;
(4) is fictitious;
(5) has letters, numbers, or other identification
marks that because of blurring or reflective matter are not plainly
visible at all times during daylight;
(6) has an attached illuminated device or [is a]
sticker, decal, emblem, or other insignia that is not authorized by
law and that interferes with the readability of the letters or
numbers on the plate or the name of the state in which the vehicle is
(7) has a coating, covering, or protective material
(A) distorts angular visibility or
(B) alters or obscures the letters or numbers on
the plate, the color of the plate, or another original design
feature of the plate.
I believe that there are other states that have similar laws. Has anybody from Texas, or those other states, had to deal with the police on this issue? Do you use the Lasershield in those areas regardless?
